We're going to break some food boundaries on this week's GREAT TASTE. My first guest is Daniel Shumski, author of the just-published book, Will it Waffle from Workman Press. Waffles are one of the weekly favorites at our house, but I guarantee you have never thought of the many creative ways Dan came up with to use a kitchen tool that in most houses ends up collecting dust on a shelf.
In the studio I'll heat up a waffle iron to make one of the recipes from Dan's book. Drop by for a taste of an unorthodox type of waffle.
On the "Iowa Cooks" segment of the show I will visit with Wini Moranville from Des Moines, IA. Wini's new ebook, The French Pasta Cookbook, was just released. She is the author of The Bonne Femme Cookbook, and in her career as a restaurant reviewer has analyzed the fare of over 750 eating spots.
Great Taste is live at the KRUU studio on Wednesday at 7 central and replays at 7 in the morning on Friday.
G Man here, tuning back into KRUU land with a show that takes a wide, shallow look at a large pond that reflects the light of understanding- whatever that means.

I have a threefer from Trip Shakespeare, and an old single off the radio from The 5th Dimension. Then a wide swing thru the blues with Taj Mahal, Todd Snider, Vietnam, and Siegall-Schwall Band. Bent blues, really, and that is a good thing. We'll end up with Spirit and The Steve Miller Band. Twenty-six songs pretty much like the lenses of the glasses.... The G Man
