Off The Menu Guests From Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl: 4/20/13
This past Saturday on “Off The Menu” with Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl, we found out what we are supposed to be eating according to our ancestors (and plenty of myths too!), the best Fish and Chips and all things cooking with Marianne Miller, chef and owner of cooking school Saga Hill!
Marlene Zuk is the author of “Paleofantasy: What Evolution Really Tells Us About Sex, Diet, and How We Live“. Is there any actual way people are “supposed” to eat, based on our neolithic history, or is all the diet advice, from vegan to paleo, a bunch of 21st century malarkey? Marlene shares her thoughts on it with Dara plus plenty of myths too. Ancient diets were probably not all about meat like it is commonly believed. Not that is was all about Diet Coke or Cheetos either. You can listen to Dara’s interview with Marlene here.
Also Saturday was Dara’s Top Five Fish and Chips in the Twin Cities. While it’s become common knowledge for Fish and Chip-heads to flock to Anchor in NE Minneapolis, a newcomer made the list along with a few surprises. You can find the list to that in our “Best Of Section” here.
Marianne Miller is the chef and owner of cooking school Saga Hill, and she joined Dara to talk about all things cooking. Ramps, asparagus, rhubarb, the early spring veg, and also to talk about some of the controversies about female chefs today, like, should they get special awards? How about Jamie Malone at Sea Change, the only woman in the top 10 Food and Wine Best New Chefs in America? A great honor for a local chef but why just one female?
