Join host Phil Nigash as he explores the food culture of America and the world.
episode 120 :: ugly delicious
Today we’re discussing Ugly Delicious, a Netflix show hosted by David Chang. Each episode of the show highlights a single dish, explores how it’s made, and how to tell if what you’re getting in your neck of the woods is authentic or a total fugazi. Ugly Delicious digs deep to explore the cultural, sociological, and culinary history of each popular dish.
episode 119 :: a meat free diet
Vegetarians had it right all along. Then, vegans came along and spoiled everything by being attention whores. The idea: If it comes from the ground, eat it. If it comes from an animal, don’t. Everyone has their reasons for excluding meat from their diet. Today, I explore the possibilities and the reasons why people make this radical change in their dietary lifestyle.
episode 118 :: elevated roast
My brother Chuck joins the show to discuss all things coffee as he launches his new coffee roasting company Elevated Roast. Like most artisans, his passion for roasting coffee started as a hobby over a decade ago and it didn't take long for that passion to turn into a profession. Chuck knows practically everything there is to know about what makes the difference between an acceptable roast and an exceptional roast. I can tell you with great certainty that his beans are the latter. Visit elevatedroast.com to order fresh roasted beans that will change your perspective on coffee.
episode 117 :: albert adria
He has lived in the shadow of his brother most of his life, and now he is building an empire of his own. For decades, when people thought of El Bulli, it was synonymous with Ferran Adria. But those who knew the inner workings of that project were well aware that it was Albert who was responsible for its success all along.
episode 116 :: the great mustard war
Outside of the LeBron era, being a sports fan in Cleveland has been as enjoyable as a root canal. Thankfully, there's a great mustard war going on that makes an otherwise dreadful ballpark hot dog relatively gameworthy. Still reeling from Bourdain's death, I discuss some recent revelations that shed light on his possible motives for suicide. My brother will be my guest on the next episode, and we're talking really good coffee. I mean, REALLY GOOD COFFEE.
episode 115 :: eat. race. win.
EAT. RACE. WIN. is a behind-the-scenes adventure into the biggest annual sporting event in the world: The Tour de France. Yes, even bigger than the Super Bowl. The show follows Chef Hannah Grant, who takes us on her race within the race as she sources performance food for Australia's pro cycling team, Orica-Scott. Hannah shows us exactly what it takes to perform at the edge of human endurance for 21 days of racing - the hardest bike race in the world.
I've listened to this podcast for a long time and can't say enough good things about it. The host Phil is passionate about food but isn't elitist or snobby about it at all. He's a straight shooter that sees through the foodie b.s and sticks to his mantra of eating fresh and locally. I recommend this podcast to anyone who loves food, food culture, food news etc...
No better podacast for food and beer
I have listened to this podacast from the very beginning and it really does not get any better than this. Phil has done nothing but add more content and improved the quality of the show over time. If you love food and drink than this is the place for you to listen. When a new episode comes out I clear out time to sit and listen to the whole thing. Just awesome
Food, beer, entertainment. I like beer, and since I found this podcast, I've been trying many types of beers that I never knew existed! Phil is funny and very likeable. Definitely one of the best food podcasts!
