Description

Dishing out the stories behind the St. Louis food scene.

Episode Date
The real spirits of St. Louis
26:02

St. Louis is a heck of a beer town, and there are so many options to choose from. But sometimes, you just want something more… spirited.

We set out to do an episode about canned cocktails, but the story tasted so good, we couldn’t max out at 7%. So, we’re sipping on a little liquid courage to learn how the beer mecca of the Midwest is getting harder… as in, our drinks.

And no, we’re not talking about those flavored seltzer waters here.

This week we talk about how to make veggies the star of the plate—not some force-yourself-to-eat-them side dish. We also run down the food spots that are coming—and the ones we had to suddenly say goodbye to.

We also chat about the best things we ate this week, and for Dori, it might have been the best thing she's ever eaten.

If you don't want to veg out all weekend, we've got your scoop on the fun food events that caught our eye.

Some of the most creative, inventive chefs in the country let us behind the scenes, where they're working veggie magic, and they share how we can all spice things up.

We chat with Michael and Tara Gallina, the power couple behind Vicia. We also talk to Dave Bailey, the man behind Baileys' Restaurants.

Producer Dori has the week off, so Abby’s joined by reporters/TISL brothers Rhyan Henson and Brandon Merano, aka Meatball and Lean Cuisine. They talk about the best food combos they’ve experienced, what they thought of the experimental foods Abby and Dori brought back from their shoot last week, Brandon’s international food adventures, and why Rhyan’s mom’s spaghetti might actually be worth singing about.

 

And as always, we've got your weekly roundup of the best three food-related events you can check out this weekend. **We’ll be taking the next couple of weeks off to work on some special projects, so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss a beat (and rate and review while you’re at it)!

Fusing and freestyling
25:17

What happens when a non-Jewish chef prepares a Kosher meal for his pizza-loving friend who actually has a craving for sushi? Here’s a hint: it’s green.

After a pit stop at Blk Mkt Eats, we’ll explore how fusion restaurants find the best of world cuisines to make something totally different, and the science of why it might be perfect for those of us who can never decide where to go for lunch.

Tell us about the best fusion food you've ever had! Was it an odd combo that you now crave? Email us at podcasts@ksdk.com.

He made that dish Famous (Barr)
26:06

Get into any discussion with a native St. Louisan about restaurants of yesteryear, and someone—inevitably—will bring up a department store. Yeah, sounds weird, but if you grew up in St. Louis it makes so much sense.

This week's episode is all about Famous-Barr and its equally as famous French Onion Soup.

We explore why St. Louisans still crave and rave about this bubbly bowl of brothy goodness. We also talk to a local chef who brought it back from culinary extinction. (Yes, you can indeed still get a bowl of this famous soup!)

Snoot, it's a St. Louis thing
16:46

Have you ever tried snoot? Have you ever even heard of snoot?

It's a St. Louis thing perfected by the folks at Smoki O's BBQ. While editing the last episode about barbecue, Abby and her producer realized they had never even tried snoot. So, they decided find out more about its history and prevalence in the area... and, of course, they gave it a try.

We want to hear about your snoot experiences. Love it? Hate it? Interested in giving it a try? Connect with us on Instagram at Abby Eats St. Louis. You also can shoot us an email at podcasts@ksdk.com.

As good as we think we are

Here in St. Louis we know good barbecue, but we don’t need to toot our own horns. We can have the guy who literally wrote the book on BBQ do it for us.

In this episode, we sit down with the guys behind three of the best-known BBQ joints in town. They spill their thoughts on sauce. We grill 'em on their pitmaster secrets. They dish out their menu misfires.

We take you behind the scenes and get a little southern, a little spicy, smoky and saucy—or however you like your BBQ.
