Never say we didn’t bring you anything unusual! It’s going to be a fascinating show this week on our merry Food for Thought with Ryan et moi. Ryan’s booked one of his longtime food heroes, erstwhile New Orleans restaurant critic and food writer Tom Fitzmorris of The New Orleans Menu, who wows us by hosting a food radio show not once a week for an hour like us, but six days a week for three hours daily!
And I’ve finally managed to corral our favorite bartender in the world, Jeffrey Morgenthaler. Since leaving Eugene’s Bel Ami a handful of years ago, Jeff has met with great success in Portland, managing the bar at Clyde Common and traveling the world looking for new drink combinations. Still blogging occasionally, he’s been featured in print all over the country for his famous eggnog and his barrel-aged cocktails, and has recently finished his first book and is opening a new venture, too. Whew!
All this, more on my Amsterdam trip, Ryan’s dispatches from the front lines of Eugene holiday commerce, and more! Listen in at Food for Thought on KLCC Sunday at noon (PST) on 89.7FM in Eugene, or its sister stations in Oregon, or live on the web.
