Guys and Food Podcast
About This Show
Think of it as a man cave where regular guys talk about food and drink instead of sports!
Guys and Food is for you and other regular guys who love food. You don’t have be a chef or work in the food business. You don’t have to be an expert or a gourmet. You may just enjoy cooking, you may like to explore history or other cultures through food, or you may just like to eat.
You’ll probably like Guys and Food if:
• Your idea of a power tool is an immersion blender.
• You’re more interested in who won Top Chef than who won the latest sporting event in the national headlines.
• You’re the type of guy who likes to talk about the last meal that you ate, the meal you are eating, and the next meal you’ll eat.
• You covet your friend’s Viking Stove over his new sports car.
