Mind of A Chef, The Previous Broadcasts

Latitude (Episode #306H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 30, 2017 -- 11:30 AM

South Korea and kentucky both lay along the same latitudinal line. The 38th parallel also spans Southern Spain and Italy, San Francisco, and generous portions of the American South. A similar terroir translates into some interesting crossing of cultures for chefs like Ed, as well as Stuart Brioza - who cooks Mediterranean dim sum - and Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman from Tennessee's Hog & Hominy - who cook Memphis favorites imbued with Calabrian family traditions. A renowned geologist who has a hand in viticulture explains it plainly, and food history becomes a bit less mysterious.

Kentucky (Episode #305H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 23, 2017 -- 11:30 AM

Ed got his start in NYC but now calls Louisville home. Ed takes us on an insider tour of town to see what goes on behind the scenes with his friend Bobby, a horse trainer. They eschew mint juleps for tamales with the other trainers in pre-dawn hours just days before the Derby. Ed's evolution continues as he discusses how living and working in Louisville has inspired, influenced, and changed him over the past decade - Louisville is where he gently placed aside his classic French technique and decided to do something all his own. Ed delves into Louisville's fried chicken scene and cooks up his own version along with North Carolina chef Ashley Christensen, and uses the city's German heritage as an inspiration to cook hasenpfeffer for his wife, Dianne.

Louisville (Episode #304H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 2, 2017 -- 11:30 AM

Ed got his start in NYC, but now calls Louisville home and home is where the heart is. He discusses how living and working in Louisville have inspired, influenced and changed him over the past decade - Louisville is where he gently put aside his classic French technique and decided to do something all his own. Working with chef Kevin Ashworth from Ed's restaurant Milkwood, the chefs experiment with farmers market finds, allowing a view into how a new dish is created. Ed then delves into Louisville's fried chicken scene and cooks up his own version with North Carolina chef Ashley Christensen. Finally, honoring the woman who kept him in Louisville in the first place, Ed uses the city's German heritage as inspiration to cook hasenpfeffer for his wife, Dianne.

LudoBites (Episode #511H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jul 1, 2017 -- 3:30 PM
