Episode 269: Rice 5.0


Yep, it's true. The Rice Wizards™ are back! For their fifth rice-centric installment, Carla and Amiel focus on what to do with leftovers. After that, we talk to chef and activist Reem Assil of Reem’s in the Bay Area. While she’s currently using her restaurants as commissary kitchens to feed the most vulnerable in her community, she’s also thinking about the future. What we need to strive for, she believes, is not the return of the restaurant industry as it once was, plagued with inequity. Instead, we have the opportunity to rewire the way it works from the ground up. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Like so many other business owners, chef Tom Colicchio had to lay off the vast majority of his employees in the wake of COVID-19.

Today, we talk to him about what that means exactly for restaurants and what he thinks needs to happen going forward. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

I wasn't thrilled with the format of the podcast. The conversation seemed petty, and not very informative. But the comment on the purebred dogs, that was the deal breaker. Way to alienate a listener group.

Adam doesn't like Anchovies? I'll put a hundred dollars on the fact that he doesn't like oysters on the half shell and he doesn't go down on his wife.
