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.

You can store it in the fridge or freeze it to use during the wintertime. Since pignoli nuts (also known as pine nuts) can be super expensive, consider using chopped walnuts as a substitute. If you omit the nuts altogethe
