Today’s show is a special edition of Good Food featuring Lesley Barger Suter of Los Angeles Magazine who joins Evan to discuss Los Angeles Magazine’s Chefs Issue which is on stands now. Barger Suter interviews Chef Josef Centeno about his forthcoming Tex Mex restaurant Bar Amá and she visits Chef Craig Thornton’s downtown loft where he hosts his popular Wolves Mouth supper club. Back in the studio Evan asks New York chef April Bloomfield about her gastropub fare and Chef Micah Wexler returns to the station to discuss his greatest arsenal in the kitchen – his spice cabinet. Author Michael Ruhlman reflects on what it takes to be a professional chef and Jonathan Gold appreciates the pig-centric menu at The Parish in Downtown LA. Plus, Producer Evan George visits Eagle Rock Brewery and Golden Road Brewing where he sees first hand what it takes for a small brewery to get their products in cans and bottles. And at the market, Laura Avery talks to Chef Phil Kastel and Barbara Whyman of Tutti Frutti Farms about the abundance of peppers at Southern California Farmers Markets.
