    Ep. 25: Overcoming the perils of cooking at home and grocery shopping w/ Brian and Sarah (PART II)

    Grocery shopping. Cooking at home. How to read recipes. These things, though things that should be well-known among most, are genuinely stressful. Instead of talking about restaurants, we record inside Brian Addison's apartment for two hours so we can hit on the issues inside the home kitchen. Joined by Sarah Bennett (along with an appearance by our producer, Steven Smith), this trio goes through their tips, their admitted lack of knowledge, and more in this all-new, all-home Suppertime in the LBC.

    Ep. 23: From home kitchen to full on bakery w/ Gusto Bread

    Try. Fail. Try again. Fail better. This was the mantra Arturo Enciso when approaching bread—and his undeterred ambition has made him and Gusto Bread one of the most respected bakeries in the city. Now moving into a full brick-and-mortar—*whisper* we know the location!—Arturo and his partner Ana are ready to take Gusto to the next level. Join Brian Addison and Sarah Bennett on this wonderfully carb-y journey with two of Long Beach's most beloved food makers.

    Ep. 22: Brian and Sarah's Epic 2019 Food Year in Review Episode

    Ep. 22: Brian and Sarah's Epic 2019 Food Year in Review Episode

    2019 was a year of changes for Long Beach's evolving food scene: Homegrown chefs launched brick-and-mortars, more than a few classic local restaurants shuttered and new hi-rise apartment buildings added residents and retail space (that are both still figuring out what they want to eat). From Milk Barn pizza to gold-crusted salmon burgers to the power of Long Beach as a regional food destination, Sarah and Brian tackle the openings, closings and experiments that defined the last year of food in a city in transition. They talk what's working, what's not and what can we expect in 2020. Yes, there will be lots of tangents.

    Ep. 21: The beauty & pain of being a restaurant industry vet w/ Chef Arthur Gonzalez of Panxa

    Self-care. Health amongst the entirety of the kitchen staff. Knowing when to stand your ground on your food and when to walk away. These are some of the things many folks in the restaurant industry _don't_ talk about—and in order to talk about it correctly, you need experience. Enter Chef Arthur Gonzalez, the man behind Panxa Cocina and who founded Roe in Belmont Shore. Brian Addison and Sarah Bennett sit down with the veteran to talk about how he has re-approached his own self in order to find a new found love for the future and food.

    Ep. 20: The Vegan Revolution w/ one of its warriors, Dennis Dean

    The world of veganism is often casted into many stereotypes and cubbyholes: From "Does it taste like _real_ meat?" to "Why even go vegan?" the conversation surrounding veganism is often dictated by, well, non-vegans. That's why we brought on Dennis Dean, a lifelong vegetarian and now vegan, to talk about why he makes the decisions he makes—despite the constant pressure from society to do otherwise—and why being a vegan makes one more mindful. And yes, we go into what he makes for Thanksgiving.
