    Eat right, not sexy

    Eat right, not sexy

    What do you think about going paleo? Did you do a Whole30 January? Ever been served up an ad on Instagram for a DNA diet — whatever that means? This week, as part of the Wisconsin Science Festival, we’re digging into our most pressing diet questions with UW-Madison nutritionist Beth Olson, who spends her time helping families make healthy food choices. On the show, we discuss fad diets, what's new in the soon-to-be-released 2020 USDA nutritional guidelines, and how to take a healthy approach to eating for the long haul.  

    We are delighted to be among the many cool components of this week's Wisconsin Science Festival, which runs Oct. 15 to 18. Check out the offerings at wisconsinsicencefest.org

    Heavy Kevy wants YOU to cook

    Heavy Kevy wants YOU to cook

    One of our favorite things to do lately is check Instagram to see what “Heavy Kevy” is making for dinner. Kevy is not a chef. He’s not a brand ambassador or social media influencer or an ad rep for anything. He’s just a dude who likes to cook and decided to start making videos about it, and they're pretty great. But we wanted to know more of his story: Why does he say to salt meat like an icy sidewalk? How did he get so good at cooking outdoors? Where the heck is his accent from? This week on the podcast, we get the answers.

    Knives out, again

    Knives out, again

    Thanks to summer vacations, we're repurposing an entertaining and educational episode from the archives that doubles as a kitchen safety public service announcement for you, our dear listeners. On this episode, which first ran in March, Rockhound Brewing Company kitchen manager Adam Haen shares some great stories about how not to handle your knives, and offers some very pointed reasons to keep them sharp. Maybe now’s the time to sharpen your knives and in the process take out that pent-up quarantine-related frustration on the edge of a blade.

    School lunch goes home

    School lunch goes home

    Kids are going back to school this week. Well ... sort of. Some of them are going to school in buildings, while others are learning fractions over Zoom. Regardless of where they are, though, all of them need lunch. This week on the Corner Table, food editor Lindsay Christians and co-host Chris Lay talk with Irene Pawlisch, lead cook for Madison Metropolitan School District's food services, who's been figuring out how to get food to kids who need it, even when they're learning virtually at home. Everything about school seems stressful these days, but Irene's been trying to lighten things up with funny costumes and vegetable jokes.

    Where drinking is anything but serious

    Where drinking is anything but serious

    After finding success with their canned mojitos and brandy old fashioneds, Tom Dufek and his Plain Spoke Cocktail Co. business partners set out to give their drinks a brick and mortar home. Today, thirsty locals can find mixed drinks with funny names on tap at their tasting room on King Street, just upstairs from their microbrewery Young Blood Beer Co. This week on the podcast, Tom explains what he learned about pandemic-style hospitality, how their beer accidentally found its way onto liquor store shelves, and why he prefers not to take his drinks too seriously.

    Ahan finds a home

    Ahan finds a home

    Back in February, Jamie Hoang and Chuckie Brown were cooking for cocktail-sipping crowds at their Robin Room pop-up, doling out mini veggie egg rolls at Femmestival and prepping to roll out a food cart for the summer. The pandemic changed their plans.

    This past weekend they opened Ahan at The Bur Oak at 2262 Winnebago St., serving takeout noodles, curry and riffs on crab rangoon. Today on the podcast, Hoang and Brown talk about the unexpected advantages to opening at this stage in the pandemic.
