    S3 E3: Please Refrain From Sharpening Your Chopsticks with Jordan Rubin

    S3 E3: Please Refrain From Sharpening Your Chopsticks with Jordan Rubin

    Why are you sharpening them? Why are you assuming you should drown the fish in the soy sauce? I discuss this, and plenty of other important issues, with Jordan Rubin aka Mr. Tuna. Do you like Mochi? How do you feel about the Mandalorian? Do you really need a $10,000 knife? You've got questions, we've got answers. Enjoy.

    S3 E2:Delicious Food from Tiny Kitchens with Annie Mahle

    In this episode, I sit down with chef and cookbook writer Annie Mahle to talk about life as a cook on the high seas. I dazzle her with my nautical vernacular, and in return, she tells a few stories which tie directly into her newest release, The Tiny Kitchen Cookbook.

    S3 E1: Cookbooks Today, Richard Simmons, and Salads with Mindy Fox

    S3 E1: Cookbooks Today, Richard Simmons, and Salads with Mindy Fox

    In this episode, I sit down with cookbook author Mindy Fox to talk about the process of writing a cookbook, what makes a proper salad, and properly roasted chicken. These are all important things for you to know about, which can hardly be said for my rant about the Deal-A-Meal diet by RIchard Simmons. Also, be sure to pick up her newest book, Let's Do Dinner - her second collaboration with Queer Eye's Antoni Porowski.

    S2 E18: The Finer Things in Life with Vince Maniaci & Jill Dutton

    S2 E18: The Finer Things in Life with Vince Maniaci & Jill Dutton

    In this episode, I sit down with husband and wife team Vince Maniaci and Jill Dutton, owners of The Cheese Iron in Scarborough, Maine. I suppose, in essence, it's more of a love letter from me to them, which ends with Vince stealing a car (in turn, reassuring Jill of his dangerous side). It's a journey of redemption for all of us. Plus, we talk about cheese. Also, we eat cheese.... and there are these little f*****g chocolate. Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

    S2 E17: The Many Aspects of the Restaurant Business with Krista Kern Desjarlais

    S2 E17: The Many Aspects of the Restaurant Business with Krista Kern Desjarlais

    In this episode, I sit down with Krista Kern Desjarlais, chef and owner of The Purple House, as well as Bresca & The Honey Bee. She also operated one of the most well-regarded and missed Portland eateries, Bresca. We delve into her professional restaurant career - past, present, and future. I confess to my love of white chocolate. It's very exciting. You'll love it. Please enjoy.

    S2 E16: Beginnings, The Art of the Theme Party, and Enough of "Pop-Ups" with Josh Potocki

    S2 E16: Beginnings, The Art of the Theme Party, and Enough of "Pop-Ups" with Josh Potocki

    In this episode, chef and entrepreneur Josh Potocki begins with describing his personal journey, before we start waxing nostalgic about the golden age of decadence. Well, for us anyway. It was our scene, different from now - not that there is anything wrong with the current state of affairs. I think it's part of getting old when terms like "Pop-Up" can't help but solicit a huge eye roll. Also if you can take away anything from this episode, it's that your event will inevitably be a lot less cool once you lose control of the guest list. Plus the world started going downhill once "Everyone" was now considered a "Winner." Lastly, we kill some deer. For a good cause. 


    Also - we celebrate our two new sponsors - The Dunstan Tap & Table as well as Legent Bourbon. You can find the recipe for the drink we discuss here. Also a reminder about our patreon (link below)!

A relaxing listen that will give you the munchies.

Great, light-hearted conversation about food, complete with tips and life lessons. Joe is a staple in the area when it comes to food knowledge and his guests are warm, local celebs that get to showcase a different side of their known personalities by expressing mouth watering preferences and especially few criticisms. A relaxing listen that will give you the munchies.
