episode106 season 3
Hey Everyone, it’s Valerie here, Todays show $14 Bottle of Rose in New York I have a special guest, Rod Lechalt, we originally met when I was working on an audiobook production/radio show called Project DF he was one of my casted characters, take a listen…
He was so good I casted him for another part
…take a listen
And then we followed each others socials and I discovered we have similar interests like food and drinks so, we got to talking and here’s our interview, think EAT – great good around the world, CREATE – great memories about travel and a good storyteller, oh and he’s from Calgary, Alberta also like me, enjoy the show! This show was originally recorded in May of 2020, there is some light swearing which I do not beep
One thing you’ll notice right away from Rod is his love to tell a quick snippet story here and there like this one..
- As I mentioned at the top of the show this was originally aired in May of 2020 when covid was in full swing in our city…
- Michelin stars is a rating that was first introduced in 1926….
- Has this every happened to you – I’m sure it has…
- More Corona virus chat…
- I had not seen the video – I have however watched it – well part of it…
- Rod and his wife posed nude …..
- Sous Vide…
- Why do they call it Hell’s kitchen
- Le Pain Quotidien….oui oui
Wow what an interview, such a friendly guy hey? We had a great time, and since we originally recorded this episode in May there’s so much that has happened in the world and one of the major things for this episode is numerous places that Rod has visited on his food travels are no longer open or temporarily closed due to covid. So many great restaurants haven’t made it through this difficult time and with more and more people learning to cook at home this will likely continue.
Here’s a recap of the places we chatted about:
Momofuko Group, David Chang, New York
Ugly Delicious, Netflix Show,
Global News, Imagine Segment
Cooked, Netflix Show
L’entrecote de paris, Paris France
The Final Table, Netflix Series, Calgary Chef
4th spot kitchen and bar, Calgary Alberta
Captain’s Boil, Calgary Alberta
Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan New York
Le Pain Quotidien, Manhattan New York
Mendicino County, California Highways
Fetzer Winery, Old River Road, Hopland CA
One thing I have to confess is we each recorded our sides of the conversation on our own mic as well as over zoom…I however when it came to editing this show late in 2020 could not find my side of the recording…so the editing and processing was a bit of a feat with the online audio.
