60-Second Stir-Fry: Rick Field of Rick's Picks
Friday, March 23, 2012
If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen and away from my iPod touch video camera!
Rick Field is the man who spawned a renewed interest in pickles and pickling with Rick's Picks, which he launched following a career as a television producer for legendary public radio journalist Bill Moyers.
Field uses a hot bath method for his pickled products, so he didn't flinch when put under the boiling-hot pressure of the 60-Second Stir-Fry's lightning round. However, I detected a hint of vinegar-scented sweat when I asked him to choose between Moyers and WNYC's own host Brian Lehrer.
