Episode 20 :: Japadogs


I was watching Tony Bourdain’s show No Reservations on the Travel Channel recently and when visiting Vancouver he hit this hot dog stand that made these Japanese Hot Dogs. They were marinated in Teriyaki, grilled, then topped with wasabi mayonnaise, shredded nori, and daikon radish.  Looked delicious, so I decided to make them. They may not be the same thing he had, but they sure kick ass.  Make them with me.

In addition:
Oskar Blues• Enjoying Oskar Blue’s Dale’s Pale Ale
• Discussing the Next Food Network Star (and my own culinary point of view)
• A tribute to George Carlin
• Top Chef Season 4 recap
• The FDA fallout from the tomato incident (and cover-up)
• Momofuku Ko and their ban on foodies with cameras
• Rustico Restaurants battle with the ABC and the Virginia state legislature to serve beer as food

[rockyou id=112749237&w=400&h=300]

Join me as I celebrate the show’s 1-year anniversary. Exciting times for me, but not nearly as exciting as it was for one famous Beer Safari podcast when they celebrated their first. There are no parallels. I feel fortunate to have made it this far, and I’m looking forward to the show’s progression.

In this episode:

• Recapping the show’s first year
• Coming Soon: A new local OC brewery “The Bruery”
Port Brewing’s Hop 15
• The Nationwide Tomato Scare (thanks FDA, for doing such a fine job)
• Izakaya style at Oki Doki
• An example of how every podcast’s anniversary should be celebrated
• Gordan Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen video game
• The next great advancement in food advertising
• California farmers pitch in to help feed the poor
• Wii Fit & Major League Eating in the uncomfort of your own home
• Kitchen Gardens
