Live at Hy-Vee with Chef Matt Steigerwald and SOFIA on the KRUU Stream

Chef Matt SteigerwaldGreat Taste this week is an encore broadcast featuring Matt Steigerwald. Matt is one of the most talented chefs I know, and it's a gift to have him on the Iowa food scene. He closed the Lincoln Cafe in December, but the Lincoln Wine Bar in Mount Vernon is open and serves some of the best pizza anywhere. Last Saturday night I saw at least 15 folks from Fairfield there. Enjoy the broadcast.

Next week a visit with Heli Claire Witherspoon who works at Tartine in San Francisco. Put Tartine on your “must eat there" list if you are in the Bay Area.

This Wednesday our show features Chef Matt Steigerwald of the Lincoln Cafe in Mt. Vernon, Iowa.  Many folks believe Matt has the best restaurant in the state.  I would not miss this one-in the Club Room at Hy-Vee, 7:00 pm sharp.

Claudia Mueller, publisher of The Iowa Source, will be there, along with Nina Benjamin, who wrote an article about Matt for the Source's March issue.

Kicking off the show is Emily Rose Shaw presenting part 2 of her "Ode to Spring Greens."  I almost forgot to mention that Matt's making Harissa cauliflower with local greens, as a nod to Emily's presentation, and a Charred eggplant falafel with goat cheese lemon yoghurt.
