Randy Alonso took on a tough job recently — resurrecting South Miami's Fox's Lounge. He and his business partner, Chris Hudnall, spent the last three years renovating the bar that had been open for 69 years in South Miami, Florida until it closed in 2015. Rather than build a new place and just slap the old neon sign on it, Randy looked at preserving what made it popular — a dark old bar with lots of history and familiar food. We start with a remembrance of the late "Top Chef" alum Howie Kleinberg, who died in July. And we finish with an update on Carlos' sandwich press obsession. Learn more about your ad choices.

Lucky’s Fire & Smoke – Focus on Wagyu Beef, Exquisite Flavor and the Science Behind Great Nutrition

Discover Lafayette

The proprietors of Lucky's Fire & Smoke, Lafayette's newest restaurant, discuss their unique cuisine which features farm-direct American Wagyu beef, poultry, locally sourced seafood, and plant-based offerings. Acclaimed chef and author, Jimmy Schmidt, a three-time winner of the James Beard award who created this fine-dining concept along with Lucky's co-owner, Eddie Khoury, a restauranteur of 30 years who brought this unique restaurant to Lafayette, join our discussion. Over the years, Chef Jimmy Schmidt's culinary accomplishments have been consistently recognized. He has been named on the Food & Wine Magazine Honor Roll of American Chefs,  Cooks Magazine Who's Who of Cooking in America, Gourmet Magazine America's Best Restaurants, USA Today's 10 Best Destinations in Southern California and awarded a 5 Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences. And yes, he has served as guest chef judge on Top Chef. Jimmy has also published many cookbooks and contributed to Bon Appetit, Cuisine, Gourmet, Food & Wine. In 2018, Jimmy Schmidt and his team created a new way to enjoy the wonderful flavors of American BBQ with Lucky's Noble Fire & Smoke. When his longtime friend and colleague, Eddie Khoury, realized the unique concept of Lucky's, he convinced Jimmy to help him bring it to the Lafayette market; Lucky's is the first of its kind to open in the U. S. Lucky's Fire & Smoke is located at 6774 Johnston Street, Lafayette LA 70503. It offers a Saturday and Sunday Brunch from 10 am to 3 pm, and is open Tuesday through Saturday 5 to 10 pm, and Sunday, 5 to 9 pm. Visit https://luckyslafayette.com for more information. The featured photo is Lucky's stuffed Deviled Egg dish featuring Wagyu beef bacon on top. Lucky's Lafayette location is the first to open in the U. S. Jimmy grew up in Champagne, Illinois, working on the family farm as a kid, which influenced his appreciation of whole foods and nature, something he only came to realize as an adult. His cooking skills are deeply based on science and influenced by his background in engineering, as his focus is not only on taste but nutrition, extracting the maximum health benefits from each meal prepared. While in college, Jimmy studied electrical engineering at the University of Illinois and went to France to earn language credits where he took cooking classes for entertainment. While there, he fell in love with food and wine and studied under Madeleine Kamman. He earned a culinary degree from Luberon College and the French Institut Technique du Vin diploma from Maison du Vin in Avignon. Jimmy followed Madeleine to Boston where he worked for her in the restaurant business for a number of years; he graduated magna cum laude and first in class with a Professional Chef's diploma from Modern Gourmet. He pursued higher education at Harvard University Graduate School of Business from 1999 through 2001. Madeleine generously shared with Jimmy not only what food was, but the recipes and the chemistry behind great cuisine. Jimmy says, "It lit a fire under me to always reach out to learn more." He's always focused on the science behind cooking and creating great dishes. Chef Jimmy Schmidt's whole focus is on the science behind the preparation of foods. "You instinctually crave foods in season. They'll all have the highest amount of nutrition and flavor right off the tree and plant. As a chef that focuses on developing flavors, hand in hand with fresh foods comes great nutrition. I ask how can I make this taste better. My scientific research is to understand how things taste better and how can I use culinary techniques to accentuate flavor while also releasing bioactive ingredients that are nutritionally based so that diners can absorb bioflavonoids in their body to benefit from the meal?" The name, "Lucky's Fire & Smoke," was inspired by the book "Catching Fire - How Cooking Made Us Human," written by Richard Wrangham.

Hi there — happy Tuesday! We’ve got a great conversation for you today with author Adrienne Cheatham on her first cookbook, Sunday Best. Check out the episode and more—featured recipes!—below. But first, a few announcements:Our Summer Cookbook Club is in full swing and we’re baking our way through Jessie Sheehan’s Snackable Bakes. Next Tuesday, we’ll come together on Zoom with Jessie to make a cherry clafoutis (if you’d like) and to discuss cookbooks, sweets, and more. Reserve your seat now! Do you love Salt + Spine? We’d love if you shared this email with a friend who might want to #TalkCookbooks with us, too:And now, here’s Adrienne:Episode 135: Adrienne CheathamThis week, we’re joined by Adrienne Cheatham to discuss her debut cookbook, Sunday Best: Cooking Up the Weekend Spirit Every Day: A Cookbook (with Sarah Zorn).Adrienne is a Chicago native who grew up spending a lot of time in the restaurants that her mother managed. She was drawn to the kitchen and, before long, it became a safe place for her to thrive.After college, Adrienne dove into the back of the house, working in kitchens and enrolling at the Institute of Culinary Education. From there, she landed at Le Bernardin under Chef Eric Ripert, where she spent eight years and worked up from a commis to the Executive Sous Chef of the 3-Michelin star restaurant. She went on to work as the Chef de Cuisine of the Marcus Samuelsson Group, where she helped open new concepts and served as executive chef of the flagship Red Rooster.And of course, through it all were cookbooks. As Adrienne tells us, she worked with both Eric Ripert and Marcus Samuelsson on their books before she landed a deal of her own. And that debut book, Sunday Best, builds on the longstanding family tradition of gathering for a Sunday meal. The roots of the name actually run back to the days of segregation, when enslaved Black people would wear their “Sunday best” in order to “demand respect from those who didn’t accept them as equal.”Today, Adrienne — who also came in second place on season 15 of “Top Chef” — also hosts virtual Sunday Best conversations on her Instagram, an extension of the Sunday Best pop-up dinners she planned pre-pandemic. And now her first cookbook, she brings the “weekend spirit” to everyday cooking with 100 recipes ranging from grilled skirt steak with mustard-green chimichurri to green tomato chili to yuzu banana pudding. Bonus Content This WeekPAID SUBSCRIBERS (you can become one!) this week will get two featured recipes excerpted from Sunday Best: Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Bacon and Grilled Green Tomato Salad with Buttermilk Vinaigrette and Pepitas.Salt + Spine is supported by listeners like you.

Déjà presque 3 ans que le podcast existe, je le disais : près de 150 épisodes publiés et tout autant d'histoires saisissantes, touchantes, passionnantes, et même parfois révoltantes que nous vous avons fait découvrir. Et si on levait le voile ?! En juin 2020, nous vous avions proposé de découvrir les coulisses de French Expat en compagnie de Caroline, Manon et Charlotte. Au cours de cette même saison, vous aviez aussi rencontré Fanny Cohen, qui a géré avec brio le blog de French Expat depuis le début de la saison 2. Et début un tout petit peu plus d'un an, j'ai commencé à collaborer avec Alice Krief. Il s'agit d'une ingénieure du son. Elle a travaillé sur des émissions de télé que vous connaissez peut être comme les reines du shopping ou encore Top Chef, et depuis quelques années elle se dédie quasiment entièrement au monde du podcast en France. Alice Krief, vous voyez son nom dans les notes et articles accompagnant tous nos épisodes, mais qui est-ce ?Aujourd'hui Anne-Fleur Andrle vous propose de jeter un œil dans les coulisses de French Expat en compagnie d'Alice, notre ingénieure du son. Chaque semaine, Alice travaille avec Anne-Fleur pour créer un univers sonore dans lequel vous pouvez plonger afin de ressentir, de recevoir, d'accueillir les témoignages qu'on vous propose. Comment travaille-t-elle sur le podcast ? Comment s'y prend-elle ? Son approche a-t-elle évolué ? Fait-elle ses bruitages elle-même ? Plein de questions, et aussi plein de réponses !Les épisodes que l'on mentionne dans cet épisode (dans l'ordre) sont les suivants :Arnaud - le français de ShanghaiEmmanuelle - Las VegasJustine - PologneCharlotte et Jeremy - St PetersburgNicolas Wild - Kaboul a changé ma vieJingle - Série les enfants d'expatsJingle - Série La peur en avionJingle - les couples multiculturelsVocal utilisé dans l'épisode de Nelly à LondresCharlotte - Los AngelesFlavie - VancouverPlus d'infos sur Alice Krief : https://www.lesbellesfrequences.com/Retrouvez les podcasts de French Morning : https://frenchmorning.com/podcast/ Voir Acast.com/privacy pour les informations sur la vie privée et l'opt-out.

“If anything, you're on a journey. And if you want to use a metaphor of a kayak in a river, don't worry about who's looking on the shores. It's just you and your paddle and the water.” - Tu David Phu Ever Forward Club's Ashanti Branch is joined by Tu David Phu. Tu is a renowned chef. You may recognize him from Bravo's television show, “Top Chef”, or write-ups from the San Francisco Chronicle, or his documentary that aired on PBS, “Bloodline.” Tu boils life down to “living and loving righteously”. And he does this through filmmaking and “food justice” - whether it be sharing the therapeutic powers of cooking with incarcerated men, serving the Asian American community, or being a champion for sustainable cooking. His attitudes toward justice, masculinity, and power narratives were shaped at a young age. Enjoy learning about Chef Tu's masks in this episode! (2:10) Ashanti's introduction. (5:40) Ashanti and Tu discuss how America's definition of masculinity is defined by violent Eurocentric narratives, which differ from many cultures around the world. (10:30) Then, Ashanti and Tu look back on their childhood, and how narratives and systems that emasculate certain young men and boys strip them of their authentic identity. (27:40) Tu shares some of the masks he encounters in the world of food and media, and how he is trying to live by what he preaches. (32:20) Tu and Ashanti discuss the relationship between sports and the dominant masculine culture, and how it shields young minds off from a world of possibilities, careers, successes, and passions. (40:40) Ashanti and Tu make their masks together. (47:25) Tu shares the front of his mask - I am big and strong, I have tattoos, I am a chef - and the back of his mask - I cry, I do a baby voice with my puppies, I've experienced abuse. (54:50) Ashanti shares the front of his mask - funny, serious, dedicated - and the back of his mask - fear of failure, momma is so important to me, worry about being enough.
