Stirring it up with Chef John Folse & Co.

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

While I was down in my swampy homeland, I had the amazing fortune to appear as a guest on Chef John Folse‘s radio show, which, if you’ve never heard it, is absolutely brilliant. Folse is a much celebrated chef, restauranteur, culinary historian, and all-around Cajun personality/bon vivant. The man is so knowledgeable, so kind-hearted, so […]

Greetings, Canucks! I come in peace…with meat.

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Just this past weekend, I appeared on Canadian national public radio (the glorious CBC), on a wonderful show called “Definitely Not the Opera” with host Sook-yin Lee.

I’ve recently returned to my hometown, New Orleans, which has always held a special, spicy place in my heart, as it should any food lover.

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

I was back on the wonderful “wireless” last week, this time on the great Tampa Tribune podcast known as “Table Conversations” with food writer Jeff Houck (you can also find his blog, “The Stew” here).

In which I eat the Morning Zoo

Saturday, March 8th, 2008

So if you happened to be in Chicago last Monday, and you happened to be listening to the radio at about 8:40 am CST, and the radio station to which you were tuned happened to be Q101.1 (Chicago’s Alternative!), you would have heard a sweet little interview between Alan and Jim of The Morning Fix […]
