Dinner RushIt was so much fun discussing food in films with Caroline M. Grant.  Caroline and her collaborator, Lisa Catherine Harper, are the editors of The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage, a fascinating book of diverse essays focussed on "true tales of food, family, and how we learn to eat."

Caroline is an avid movie lover so we spent the hour talking about some of our favorite films where food plays a role like Aing Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman and its Westernized counterpart, Tortilla SoupDinner Rush, The Big Night, Moonstruck, and others were part of the banter before time ran out.  We had many other films on our list, but I'm curious how the ones we ended up talking about fit in with your favorites.  Let me know.  Send your comments to greattaste@kruufm.com.

Brandon Neil, Danielle George, Steve McLaskeyOver 3,400 organic farmers, educators, producers, and journalists attended the 25th MOSES (Midwest Organic Farming and Sustainable Education Service) Organic Farming Conference in La Crosse, Wisconsin, February 27-March 1, 2014.  Steve McLaskey, Directory of the MUM Sustainable Living CSA and Brandon Neil, a graduate of the Sustainable Living Program at MUM and farmer attended the conference.  They joined me in the studio along with Danielle George, who has a background in organic farming.

In addition to discussing some of the conference highlights, we dug into several of the critical issues facing us as residents and consumers on Planet Earth.  I hope you find the conversation inspiring.  I left the studio even more optimistic about the changes taking place in our food culture. 

We would love to hear what you, our listeners, think.  Please send your comments on this show and any other Great Taste programs to greattaste@kruufm.com.

- Great Taste - 20140307 - Sam Auen of Tacopacalypse

59:01 minutes (81.06 MB) Stereo 44kHz 192Kbps (CBR)

Sam AuenChef/owner Sam Auen is not a conventional character, and Tacopacalypse is not a conventional "Mexcican" restaurant. If you are looking for "Mexican" food replete with tons of beans, cheese, and bad salsa, the good news is plenty of those spots abound in almost any USA town.  If you are drawn to good food loaded with creativity and fun, then there are only two places in Iowa where it comes in the form of tacos and burritos laden with asian influences-the original Tacopacalypse now located in Des Moines' East Village, and the new branch in Fairfield at The Orpheum.

During our hour-long conversation Sam and I hip-hopped our way in and around many topics including how his approach to food developed, his daily schedule, upcoming projects, music, and cycling.  Listen close and you'll hear the soul of a person who is an outspoken straight shooter with a huge heart.

Classic Mac and Cheese

Sue Conley, one-half of the the amazing creative team responsible for Cowgirl Creamery cheeses along with her collaborator, Peggy Smith, talked with me about their recently published book, Cowgirl Creamery Cooks. It's much more than a cheese book as it is filled with entrancing recipes, kitchen tips, and the personal story of the Cowgirls.  Mac and Cheese lovers make certain you check out their recipe for this classic soul-warming dish.  You can find it at the end of the post.

If you haven't experienced their organic cheeses made in Point Reyes, California, the Mt. Tam and Red Hawk are currently available at Whole Foods in Des Moines.  Gateway Market in Des Moines is expecting their next shipment of the same two cheeses the first week of March.  Both stores will have the seasonal special St. Pat cheese the first part of March.

Baker Creek CatalogThe GREAT TASTE interview this week is with two of the world's foremost experts on Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture (MVOC), Peter and Susie Swan.  They have a unique perspective on the global food system, and many practical suggestions designed to rebalance the struture of that system leading to a healthier planet and more vital individuals.

Peter began his research on MVOC in 2003, and since 2008 has been teaching courses on the subject all over the world.  Last year he and Susie began offering a new course on MVOC and gardening.

Susie was born and rasied on a farm in Zambia.  She had a highly successful Ayurvedic restaurant and taught cooking classes at the Transcendental Meditation Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.  She is a passionate gardener and garden designer.

The time I spent with the Swans went by way too quickly.  Don't miss this thought-provoking hour.  I hope it inspires you to order seeds for the warmer weather coming soon (I hope).

Many people have the mistaken idea that traveling for work to different places is a blast.  It can be, but working trade shows is usually more exhausting than exhilarating.  After almost three weeks on the road and three trade shows, I am thrilled to be home for a few weeks before leaving for two more trade shows in February.

The good news is I did enjoy some terrific meals-good food and great company are perfect for recharging my system after 8-10 hours of standing and talking.  More details perhaps next week, but the standout spots included Tartine, the bakery where Heli Claire Witherspoon works in San Francisco, a surprising meal at The Barrymore in Las Vegas, Nielsens Frozen Custard’s Vegas branch (not Ted Drewes, a St. Louis landmark, but very good), and two other favorite places in Vegas-Otto at The Venetian, and Chada Thai in a nondescript strip mall on the outskirts of Vegas’ Chinatown (not what you might expect-just one strip mall after another filled with restaurants and foot massage parlors).

Lolis Eric ElieOn the show this week I talk with two engaging authors about two terrific new books.  First up is Treme:  Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans by Lolis Eric Elie.  This book was inspired by the HBO series Treme, that concluded its four-year run in December 2013.  The book is a tribute to the culinary spirit and heritage of New Orleans, and Lolis is an amazing ambassador for the city.

 

 

Joanne ChangFlour, Too:  Indispensable Recipes for the Cafe’s Most Loved Sweets & Savories is a gift from Joanne Chang.  Mouthwatering may be a commonly used word to describe recipes, but I can’t think of a better way to characterize the amazing variety of cakes, soups, sandwiches, and other goodies that Joanne has included in this follow-up to her first cookbook-Flour.  She was so much fun to talk with, and shed some interesting light on both her cultural background and her chosen profession.

Don't miss GREAT TASTE this week on KRUU at 7:00 pm CT Wednesday and 7:00 am CT on Friday.

Our most unusual show/food combination ever! 

Chef Julia Punj will demo how to open oysters, and also prepare pan fried oysters with salsa verde, butter baked oysters, and oysters motoyaki style.  Oysters for a holiday party menu sounds great, right?  So what’s so unusDanielle Georgeual?  Well, that brings us to the other part of the show.

Danielle George shows us how to make a simple and fun yule log.  Brandon Neil is going to make his fabulous sour cream old-fashioned donuts.  Now you understand?  Pretty strange, but I’m looking forward to it.

I’m counting on Tom Allen to ease the transition from seafood to rich desserts with fun music and his droll sense of humor.

Tea LeavesOne of our greatest pleasures in life is starting off several days each week with a cup of black tea from India, Ceylon or Africa.  Rachel adds a touch of milk and a little sugar to our cups.  We stir, smell, taste, sigh, and sip.  It’s a magical experience. 

A great espresso is just that, but it’s not tea.  The only other liquid that brings me a simillar type of pleasurable experience is when I am lucky enough to enjoy a special glass of wine.  Fascinating.  A realization just clicked inside that I connect both tea and wine with romance, which means they are  intimately intertwined with peak experiences Rachel and I have enjoyed together-quiet, leisurely breakfasts at home, a tea shop in Paris, afternoon tea at the Four Seasons, a dinner in a corner booth at Vetri, dinner with friends in Rome, and many other entrancing moments.

Noah LoinNoah Loin is bringing lots of his rock’n raw chocolates for us to taste.  His cacao-powered business is really rock’n, and I can’t wait to hear about it.

Tom Allen will play us a tune, and share his rather dry wit.  Beverly Merson is back with Cinebites, providing insight into a food film we should put on our “watch” list, and I really hope that is about it!

A really exciting 60 minutes of radio at Hy-Vee this Wednesday.  Come on by.

THIS WEEK ON GREAT TASTE


Karin HauringJoin us in the Club Room where we’ll explore the holiday food of Germany with Karin Hauring.  Karin is a long-time resident of Fairfield, but she was born in Hechingen, Germany in the Black Forest region of the country.  Her food sensibilities were developed with a multi-fold of influences from the surrounding countryside, including the nearby Rhine river, Italy and Switzerland to the south, Austria to the southeast, and on the west the Alsace region of France. 

I am a great pasta lover and spaetzle is a type of egg noodle found in Karin’s home city and in the neighboring areas including Alsace, Switzerland, and Austria.  She’ll teach us how to make it, and prepare another dish-red cabbage and apples-that was and still is a standard in her home.  Finally, she’ll make a pumpkin cheese cake, which I think is an influence from her adopted country.  It’s crustless so it’s an easy addition for a holiday menu.

Seth Kugel“The Frugal Traveler” for The New York Times, Seth Kugel, is our guest during the first half of this week’s show.    After graduating from Yale and Harvard and doing public service work, Seth began writing pieces for The New York Times in 1998.  In addition to the Times, Seth has written for O, the Oprah Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler, Food and Wine and numerous other publications. 

In June, 2010, he took over the “Frugal Traveler” blog for the Travel section of The New York Times.  His first “road trip” lasted 13-weeks as he made his way mostly by bus from São Paulo,Brazil to New York City.  Seth is on the road about 50% of the time, and I'm certain you'll discover his insights fascinating and useful next time the road beckons.  You can find Seth's articles at www.nytimes.com/frugaltraveler.

I try to keep up with Seth's coming and goings and over the summer he embarked on a trip to explore the USA “Heartland.”  His August 14 column, “Eating in Iowa:  Farm-Fresh, Fried and Frugal,” not only drew me in immediately, but numerous listeners to Great Taste sent me the link attached to a “Can you believe he was in Iowa” email.  Reading the article I admit feeling a bit of a pleasant shock when I came across this paragraph:

“Back to lean and green: Fairfield, home to the Maharishi University of Management, which calls itself a “home of consciousness-based education,” has more than its share of vegetarian cafeterias and restaurants. I went to the Golden Dome Market and Cafe, near (but alas, not in) the campus’s two golden domes. The vegetarian buffet ($7.50 a pound) yielded some saag paneer, a bean taco loaded with vegetables, some tasty artichoke lasagna and a piece of fresh peach blueberry pie.”

NO LIVE SHOW THIS WEEK! | ON THE KRUU STREAM

This episode of Great Taste is dedicated to Jerry Deprey.  Thanks for hanging out with us.  We're going to miss you.

Gisella Isidori and Kelli KuenzlerThe amazing Gisella Isidori returned to the Club Room last week.  As always, she brought with her the collective knowledge of Italian culture and cuisine, pouring it out during every encounter in a never-ending flow in exchanges always full of surprises. And she did surprise me several times. 

Gisella/Kelli/SavannahDuring the show Gisella was assisted by Indian Hills Culinary Arts students Savannah Strode and Kellie Kuenzler.  She had nothing but praise for their perfect rendering of her recipes into food reality-Halloween panini, pumpkin soup, grape mostarda, roasted chestnuts, and pollo schiachiatta.

(A few recipes are at the end of the post.) 

Also, Emily Rose Shaw, our health coach, gave us an inside look at the Blue Zone initiative, and Tom Allen provided the musical entertainment.

Maintaining a healthy physiology is an important objective for most people, and a physiology in good shape is a critical element for enjoying all aspects of life.  Unfortunately, a universal system that works for everyone to achieve and maintain "good health" doesn't seem to exist.  Our physiologies, though basically the same, have their own peculiarities.  A diet and lifestyle that work for one person is another person's nightmare.

Liana Werner-Gray, founder of The Earth Diet may have hit on some strategies that make it easier for a good portion of humanity to live a healthy life.  Before developing the myriad of programs that make up The Earth Diet, Liana went through her own battle with poor health, and we'll have the opportunity to hear her story during this week's show.

Gaby's roots are in Venezuela where the arepa is an everyday fixture on plates from breakfast to dinner.  Similar to the gordita (Mexico) and the papusa (El Salvador), the arepa is made with corn.  Gaby will teach us how to make this simple flatbread and fill it with beans and avocado/tofu cream.  She has a special apple dish planned for dessert.  Also, we'll get a look into the working life of a personal chef, and why she made that career choice as opposed to standing in front of the powerful stoves in a commercial kitchen.

GREAT TASTE LIVE Wednesday, September 11 at 7:00 pm CDT with Chef Gaby, our health coach, Emily Rose Shaw, Cinebites with Beverly Merson, and Tom Allen on guitar.  Don't miss it!

Poor Man's Feast cover First up is James Beard Award-winning author Elissa Altman.  Her newest book is Poor Man's Feast:  A Love Story of Comfort, Desire, and the Art of Simple Cooking.  I think you can understand Elissa's take on food by reading this excerpt from her website: 

 So, what is Poor Man’s Feast really about?
It’s about sustenance in the face of pretense.
It’s about authenticity in the face of the artificial.
It’s about simplicity in the face of the tarted-up.
It’s about kindness in the face of the rude.
It’s about storytelling — mine, my family’s, yours, your family’s — and how those stories are inextricably bound up with what we feed ourselves and those we love, what we eat at times of joy, sorrow, delight, surprise, fear, and sadness. And it’s always about slowing down a little bit.
