Live at Hy-Vee this week we're going to spice things up with Thai food. Local student of culture and climates, Sean Hickey, will prepare three dishes-dry-style street noodle, chicken rice soup, and kao soy. Gisella Isidori will visit with us, and we're going to talk about a special Italian trip coming up in June.
If you can't make it to Hy-Vee, join us on the web for our tea show with Bruce Richardson and Corey Morrow. Bruce is a world-reknowned expert on the Camellia sinensis, while Corey brews the leaves up locally at earth and water.
It was an evening filled with knowledge, history, practical tips, and some laughter about the world of tea. We tasted four different types of tea so if you would like to taste along with us, here's what to find (or something close) at your local tea purveyor-Silver Needle (white), Wu Yu Green Mist (green), Ti Guan Yin (oolong), and Assam Gold (assam). Bake some scones, invite a group of friends over, (don't pre-boil the water), and experience some of the infinite aromas and tastes that come from one, that's right, one--in case you didn't know--plant.
Great Taste is live at Hy-Vee on Wednesday at 7:00 pm CT, and on the air with our previously recorded show at the same time. The show airs this Friday at 7:00 am CT and again next Wednesday at 7:00 pm CT. The tea show will be rebroadcast on Friday, March 8 at 2:00 pm CT. See Chai recipe by clicking "Read more" below.
