Two of America's finest chefs: two time James Beard Award winning chef Gabriel Rucker and Greg Denton, whose restaurant, Ox, is considered one of Portland's finest, join Pete on today's adventure. First stop for ingredients, the Portland Farmer's Market that is one of the most beautiful in the country. Next, Pete, Gabe and Greg stop at Nicky USA for some amazing cuts of meat, including bison chops. Today's meal is served at the Wine Collective in Portland. To go along with the fabulous wine, the menu includes Spiced Bison Flank Steak with Chimichurri, Tomatoes and Cucumbers, Charred Baby Leeks with Hazelnut Romesco and a Snap Pea and Goat Cheese salad that replaces the standard tomato with strawberries.

KQED Life: Tue, Oct 21, 2014 -- 12:30 PM
Pete Evans explores one of New York City's most famous neighborhoods, Little Italy. Creating this masterful meal are best-selling author and owner of Prune restaurant, Gabrielle Hamilton, along with chef, author, and restaurant owner Marco Canora, of the Michelin star-rated Insieme Restaurant. First stop, the culinary trio starts off at Sophia on the famed Mulberry Street for an espresso and a shot of grappa, then they visit Di Palo that has been in the Italian food business since the early 1900's for the ingredients to make pasta and antipasto. And to round out their adventure of Italian purveyors they stop by a gelato maker to pick up dessert. On the menu tonight: a Negroni cocktail, Pork Chop Milanese with Endive and Treviso Salad, Bagna Cauda with Seasonal Vegetables, Fresh Pappardelle with Peas, Butter, and Parmigiano-Reggiano and Lemon Sgropino. A true Italian Feast! Mangia!
Chicago - The Little Goat (Episode #202H)
KQED Life: Tue, Oct 14, 2014 -- 12:30 PM
Pete Evans visits the Windy City and finds out that there is an area of Chicago's west loop that is considered perhaps the best restaurant row in America. And that is due in no small part to one of today's guest chefs: Stefanie Izard, who runs not one, but three excellent establishments on Randolph Street. She's joined by her friend and fellow acclaimed chef, Chris Pandel. Together the group explores the city of Chicago gathering ingredients to cook up a Korean-inspired family style BBQ. Twenty or so Chicago foodies enjoy Grilled Spring Onion Kimchi with Radishes, Spring Onion Pancakes, Korean-Style Slow-Roasted American Guinea Hog, Chilled Pork Loin with Rhubarb, Pork Skin Noodles with Mustard Greens, a Rhubarb-Ginger Cocktail and a beer that Stephanie helped create. Proving again, Chicago is second to no city!
New Orleans Garden District (Episode #201H)
KQED Life: Tue, Oct 7, 2014 -- 12:30 PM
Host Pete Evans explores the land of Tennessee Williams, as we throw a New Orleans fete at the mansion that inspired the playwright to pen Suddenly Last Summer. Cooking for this feast are two of New Orleans' culinary ambassadors. Brian Landry, a Louisiana seafood connoisseur and executive chef at Borgne, and John Folse, whose specialty in Cajun cooking and reproducing the vast variety of regional Louisiana favorites has made him world famous. On the way, we'll source some gorgeous okra from Covey Rise Farms, smoke some iconic NOLA Andouille Sausage, have a Mardi Gras Indian Fire Water Cocktail, and top it all off with a cafe brolo brulee. New Orleans knows how to throw a party!
San Francisco, CA: Chefs Jeffrey Saad and Cortney Burns (Episode #102H)
KQED 9: Sat, Oct 4, 2014 -- 8:30 AM
San Francisco chefs Jeffrey Saad (host of United Tastes of America) and Cortney Burns (Bar Tartine) turn up the heat with host Pete Evans, as they create a feast laden with spices from around the world. Saad goes on an expedition to Pacific Heights shop Spice Ace, where galangal, star anise, and cardamom are just three of the hundred seasonings on offer. And, like Charlie at the Chocolate Factory, the chefs get up close and personal with chocolate making (and pick up some dark-chocolate wafers for baking) at the bean-to-bar producer TCHO. When the cooking begins, Saad whips up a Thai shrimp curry with galangal, Evans nods to Bali with his roast chicken with Indonesian spices and kaffir lime leaves, and Burns infuses her TCHO chocolate with the flavors of Latin America and Southeast Asia in a chile-infused cremeux with forbidden rice and poached cherries.
