episode 104

Chef Judy Joo isn’t your ordinary chef. In fact, there’s not much that’s ordinary about her. After getting her degree and finding her way to the Wall Street trading floor, she settled into a career in finance. After a few years, her passion for food proved to be too much and she gave up Wall…

episode 101 :: one more for the road


I felt it was necessary to bring the show back today for two reasons – the first reason being an explanation of why I ended the show when I did in the Fall of 2012. The second reason being to catch you up with the fallout after that day, and how my “life” as a…

episode 100 :: finale


This project has always had an end point, and that end point is here. Since we started this journey together in the early Summer months of 2007, I have set out to learn as much as I could about food, food culture, and the truth behind what we put on our tables every single day….

episode 95 :: eat more, weigh less


When you change your lifestyle, you change your life. And perhaps my recent lifestyle change has overturned my life as a foodie – in a good way, of course. On my road to better health (and better shape) I’ve learned many things. I’ve learned how to maximize my time on the bicycle or in running…

episode 94 :: peter cottontail (with olives)


This episode has more to do with the fact that I like to eat rabbit than it does my disdain for Easter. But I do dislike what Easter has become. All of the pastel colors, cute drawings of bunnies, pink shit every where you look – it’s as if the inventors of “Candyland” had something…

episode 93 :: the sh!t show


I get it a lot. “How do you know that you don’t like things if you haven’t tasted them?” True. Everything deserves a chance, right? On today’s show, I’ll fix all of that. I taste it, drink it, cook it, and live with the consequences. From a beer I swear would never pass my lips,…
