Food is the New Rock

Ep. 142 - Momofuku Milk Bar chef Christina Tosi is this week's podcast guest.  Zach welcomed her to our Bronson Island studio, where they exchanged sweets and then talked about their mutual love of R. Kelly. Christina also talked about her childhood cassette collection, her Dad's hatred of the Beach Boys, and her completely shocking very first concert- which we won't ruin by telling you about here.  We then asked her what it's like working with David Chang, and hatched a plan to make Questlove the cereal milk of his dreams (don't tell him about it.)  

Christina Tosi's new cookbook "Milk Bar Life" is out now.

Ep. 141 - Chef Jenn Louis from Lincoln in Portland, OR is this week's podcast guest. She has a brand new cookbook out called "Pasta By Hand", so we sat down with her when she was in town for the L.A. Chef Classic last month.  Jenn told us about how she became a drummer, her friendship with M. Ward, and what it was like to sing along with the Von Trapp family at a cookie party for Food & Wine Magazine.

Ep. 140 - This week's podcast is the final episode we recorded live at SxSw's Southbites, and features Brian Harding, one half of the indie rock duo Ex-Cops.  They're the band who created the huge uproar just before SxSw by posting a letter on their Facebook page condemning McDonald's for offering to pay any of the bands who were asked to play their showcase.  We talk to Brian about that as well as what him and Amelie like to eat on tour, his brief stint working at Fatty Crab in NYC, and the fantastic L.A. restaurant "Night of Song and Joy".  

Then as a bonus we tacked on the Southbites panel we did about how to build a restaurant playlist with Adam Kinane from Supper., Andrew Wintner from Music Styling, and Chad Gluckson from Easy Tiger in Austin.  Enjoy this rare two for one special!

Ep. 139 - Momofuku Chef and Lucky Peach Editor David Chang returns to the podcast this week to talk food, music, and a little bit of basketball.  Recorded at SxSw, we talk to David about his love of Phish and the death of Rock N Roll, plus we go deep about the big Jeremy Fox article in Lucky Peach.  Zach also brings up how Dave may or may not have promised him free Momofuku Ssam Bar for life from a SxSw stage two days earlier.
