    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)!

    S2 E15: Junk Food, Fast Food, Regular Food, and Huffy Bikes with Malcolm Bedell

    S2 E15: Junk Food, Fast Food, Regular Food, and Huffy Bikes with Malcolm Bedell

    In this episode I hook up with restaurateur and food writer Malcolm Bedell. If you’re looking for a conversation about haute cuisine, you’ve come to the right place. Fake banana flavor, Little Debbie, the Filet-O-Fish, and an exploration into classic model Huffy bikes. Also, we discuss our mutual disdain for people who ride tandem bikes. 


    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.

    S2 E14: Champagne, Horror Flicks, and All The Pop-Culture You Can Handle with Lacey Burke

    S2 E14: Champagne, Horror Flicks, and All The Pop-Culture You Can Handle with Lacey Burke

    In this episode, I get together with longtime friend Lacey Burke to talk about her experience in the Champagne business. This, of course, leads to the relentless string of diversions and tangents you've come to love (hopefully) and expect (at least) from this show. Scarface, why I don't like horror films, food poisoning stories, and Halloween are a few topics that just barely scratch the surface. 


    Also, there are two OUTSTANDING cameos by a local car horn, who just wanted to let us know they were there and not to forget about them.

    S2 E13:Food Past, Present, and Future with Chef Rob Evans

    S2 E13:Food Past, Present, and Future with Chef Rob Evans

    In this episode, I get together with my friend and culinary legend, Chef Rob Evans. Most people know him for winning the James Beard Award, being one of Food & Wines Best New Chefs, and winning on Chopped. 


    We delve into the past's food world contrasted with the present, and then we predict the future - because we know everything. Obviously.

    S2 E12: BBQ, Bourbon, and Toaster Strudels with Chris Sedenka

    S2 E12: BBQ, Bourbon, and Toaster Strudels with Chris Sedenka

    In this episode, I head out into the woods of Buxton, Maine to chat with radio personality and producer, Chris Sedenka. Initially, we were going to be talking all things BBQ, but per usual we branch off into all kinds of tangents. I had a blast hanging out with Chris, and I hope you enjoy the show as much as I do.

Stop interrupting your guests mid-sentence

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.
