Knife Fight: Skate Wing

Knife Fight Skate WingClutch your pearls and shorten your skirts because it’s ladies’ night at The Gorbals on this week’s Knife Fight! One night out of the year, Ilan Hall puts away all of the sharp objects and confusing gizmos with their “number” and “buttons” so that two female chefs can prepare food for him without becoming hysterical or, heaven forbid, crying. The two lucky ladies are Border Grill’s Mary Sue Milliken and her bestest of besties, James Beard award winning chef Tracy Des Jardin. Continue reading

Knife Fight: Eel and Whole Goose

Knife Fight whole goose
It’s a very special double episode of Knife Fight, which is like a very special episode of Diff’rent Strokes only with much less bad touching. First up is Chef Jason Wilson from Seattle.

Brew Dogs: Durango, Colorado

Brew Dogs Druango Colorado

This week the Brew Dogs find themselves in Durango, Colorado,  a one-horse town with a seven-craft-breweries thirst. The cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde National Park are rich in brewing history. Or, none at all. The people of Mesa Verde did not brew beer. But, local Apache tribes brewed corn beer. With no carbonation and a low alcohol content, Native American corn beer doesn’t sound very good at all, but hey. Beer is beer, right? Continue reading
