Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in fall 2017. The category 5 storm tore buildings apart and flooded everything, wreaking havoc that the island and its inhabitants are still recovering from today. We connect with celebrated chef and native son, Jose Enrique, at the third annual Culinary Getaway, hosted at Dorado Beach, a Ritz Carlton Reserve. Jose, who despite losing the roof, the windows and the power to his widely acclaimed eponymous restaurant in San Juan during the storm, reopened his doors and continues to be a resolute and active champion of the island’s vibrant culinary community. Back in July 2016, we played host to the immensely talented musician Bryndon Cook, better known as Starchild & The New Romantic.

We’re in London to meet up with world-famous experimental psychologist Professor Charles Spence, founder of the Crossmodal Research Laboratory at the Department of Experimental Psychology at Oxford University. Professor Spence specializes in neuroscience-inspired multisensory design, and has extensively researched how the background sounds and music that happens to be playing in bars, restaurants and cafes biases what customers choose to purchase, order, and/or consume, not to mention what they think it tastes like, how much they enjoy – and would be willing to pay for – the experience. We drop into our musical vault and pull a 2011 in-studio performance from multi-talented L.A.-based electronic music producer Daedelus. Snacky Tunes is powered by Simplecast.
From 1972 until its closing in 1983, Todd Barkan’s Keystone Korner in San Francisco was widely considered to be one of the world’s top jazz venues. The club played host to a slew of live performances from such legends as Stan Getz, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis and Betty Carter. Todd is a renowned jazz producer and impresario, earning a prized NEA Jazz Masters fellowship in 2018. Chef Robert Wiedmaier was born in Germany and trained in Belgium and the Netherlands. He landed in the D.C. area in the 1980’s, and over the last three decades has earned the reputation as one of the country’s most respected chefs. His RW Restaurant Group operates some of the Capitol’s top eateries, including the acclaimed Marcel’s. In April 2019, these two powerhouses teamed up to revive the Keystone Korner in Baltimore. Acclaimed jazz bassist Ron Carter christened the club’s reopening with three nights of performances. We keep things jazzy with a 2014 performance by the Scott Colberg Trio from our archives. Snacky Tunes is powered by Simplecast. 
Episode 411: Tex-Oregana

Episode 411: Tex-Oregana

2019-09-2901:07:34

Critically acclaimed Portland, OR, restaurant Bullard is named after Doug Adams’ hometown in East Texas. The James Beard-nominated chef calls the restaurant’s cuisine “Tex-Oregana,” which is to say Pacific Northwest ingredients combined with Tex-Mex spirit. Bullard’s located in the Woodlark Hotel where Doug also bakes up kolaches at Good Coffee. In keeping things West Coast, we tucked into our archives and our recordings at Dangerbird Records’ studio in Los Angeles for a look-back listen to singer-songwriter Matt Costa. Matt performed tracks from his LP, Santa Rosa Fangs. Snacky Tunes is powered by Simplecast.  
Dave Beran’s our guest for this entire episode. He burst onto the national culinary scene as the Executive Chef of Grant Achatz’s high-flying, concept and genre-bending Chicago restaurant, Next. His work at Next’s stoves earned him all kinds of accolades--including a James Beard Award--so it was a bit of a surprise in 2016 when Dave announced he was leaving for Los Angeles. The following year he opened his first-ever restaurant, Dialogue. The 18-seat tasting menu restaurant lives in a former food court along Santa Monica’s tourist-drenched Third Street Promenade. It’s certainly unconventional, and it’s also been an instant hit, garnering a devoted following and a Michelin star. Continuing to cut his own path, Dave’s next venture is Pasjoli, a restaurant devoted to French gastronomy. Snacky Tunes is powered by Simplecast.
At her Michelin-starred restaurant Elizabeth in Chicago, Chef Iliana Regan has been stunning diners with her modern and soulful midwestern-inspired fare. Her cooking is rooted into the flavors she learned both growing and foraging ingredients on her family’s small farm in Northwest Indiana. In her new deeply candid memoir, Burn the Place, Iliana chronicles her less-than-conventional life’s journey. We’re joined once again by longtime friend of the Tunes, folk singer-songwriter Fletcher C Johnson. Darin and Greg met Fletcher nearly a decade ago when he was couch-surfing in Brooklyn. He’s now dropping by the studio to perform songs from his upcoming album, Are You Feelin’ It, and to talk about his new podcast, Listening to Fletcher C Johnson.Snacky Tunes is powered by Simplecast.
