60-Second Stir Fry: Dan Pashman

Friday, January 18, 2013


Dan Pashman is no stranger to Last Chance Foods, having pontificated upon jelly donuts and oatmeal for us, but this is the first time he's been Stir-Fried. Pashman shrugged off the pressure. The former NPR and Air America producer sprinkles stress and pressure on his breakfast granola.  

Granola being our topic on Last Chance Foods, I asked him what his favorite moment was when judging the Culture Gabfest's Great Granola Showdown for Slate last year. "Eating granola," he answered quickly.

Clearly, I was no Oprah, and Pashman was no Lance Armstrong, squirming in his chair. I must turn up the BTUs.

I almost tripped him up on the most odious food trend. But that was only because he misheard me. Pashman does well on the hot seat. He's deft and funny under pressure, cracking a joke about the latest entree he photographed and posted to social media.

How about it, listeners? What's the last food YOU took a photo of and Tweeted? Or do you think such an action is an odious food trend? Let me know.
