Earth, Wind and Fire's Maurice White has transitioned.


RIP to a shining star.

 

"Shining star for you to see,

what your life can truly be."

 

KRUUfm.com will be doing a musical tribute tonight Thu, Feb 4 at 7pm CT. Friday at 2pm I'll talk with KRUU's Duane Jones who grew up down the street from the Whites in Chicago and was inspired by Verdine White's amazing bass playing to take up the bass himself.

(SONG) The Heat Is On - Glenn Frey

Enjoy this GREAT TASTE Exclusive Rebroadcast originally aired 20120314. It has been downloaded from the archives over 3000 times!

It was a delicious experience being in Salt Lake City last week. I had excellent meals at the Copper Onion and Pago. More about those meals on the show.

Artisan ChocolatesI love chocolate so it was a treat to enjoy in SLC a brief Chocolate 101 session at Tony Caputo's Market and Deli. This "must" destination fine food shop downtown has its own cheese cave, an in-house salame maker, and a overwhelming number (more than 300) of cacao bean products including three types of rich chocolate drinks that should come with some type of government warning label.

The devil lurking behind these temptations is one of this week's guests, Matt Caputo. Here's how one website described him. "Matt Caputo is one of the world's most discerning connoisseur of fine chocolate bars. The award winning chocolate tasting classes he teaches at Tony Caputo's Market & Deli are highly recommended by many media outlets, chefs and even numerous international chocolate experts. His in-depth research is not limited to books and the internet, he has traveled the globe to meet and learn from the most respected chocolate makers in the world."
