60-Second Stir-Fry: Steve Ettlinger

Friday, November 30, 2012

Steve Ettlinger admits that he’s not a huge fan of junk food, but Amy Eddings put him to the test by pressing him on what junk food he would eat if he had to indulge. Instead of naming off a branded product, Ettlinger went with the more general answer of “glazed donut.” Maybe that’s more of a mid-afternoon treat for the author, though, because he said he prefers a savory start to the day.

60-Second Stir Fry: Dora Hinds and David Vigil

Thursday, October 11, 2012

WNYC

Dora Hinds of East New York Farms recommends stir-frying Malabar spinach in the braising liquid of a roast, 15 minutes before taking the meat out of the oven, so I knew she was not going to wilt under the pressures of my 60-Second Stir Fry.

Hinds grows Malabar spinach and other goodies in her big, sunny backyard. She brings extras to the "share table" at East New York Farms, where farm manager David Vigil has planted Malabar spinach, hot peppers and other veggie staples of the Caribbean.

I'm going to start this Stir Fry by answering one of my own lightning round questions, "best reason to be happy summer is coming to an end:" farmers bring in boxes of gorgeous last chance foods to WNYC's Studio 4!

60-Second Stir Fry: Gail Hepworth of Hepworth Farms

Monday, September 24, 2012

WNYC

Gail Hepworth of Hepworth Farms knew how to prepare for a stir-fry. She brought a big cardboard box to WNYC's studios, loaded with heirloom tomatoes of all stripes (literally) and white, deep purple, and lavender-and-white speckled eggplants.

My hard, inquisitor's heart was softened.

60-Second Stir Fry: Francis Lam of Gilt Taste

Friday, September 14, 2012

WNYC

Francis Lam, the features editor of Gilt Taste, is da bomb. First, he brought me a sample of the homemade tomato paste he so richly describes in this week's Last Chance Foods. Second, threw himself completely into treating the Studio 4 mascot like a live kitty, giving this Stir Fry a creepy, Halloween vibe. Too bad we weren't talking about pumpkins.

60-Second Stir Fry: Selena Gonzalez and Ian Marvy, Red Hook Community Farm

Thursday, September 13, 2012

WNYC

I blame the last, lazy days of summer on this 120-Second Stir Fry.  Time slowed to a crawl with Selena Gonzalez and Ian Marvy of the Red Hook Community Farm as we discussed top "yums" and "yuks" in the vegetable world and favorite comfort foods.

60-Second Stir Fry: Sisha Ortuzar and Zach Pickens of Riverpark

Thursday, September 06, 2012

WNYC

The hot seat is the favorite place to be for my Last Chance Foods guests, Sisha Ortuzar, chef of Riverpark and partner of the sandwich shop, 'wichcraft, and Zach Pickens, manager of Riverpark's Farm at the Alexandria Center on Manhattan's East Side.  They are big hot pepper fans and brought a paper bag full of them to the WNYC's Studio 4.

60-Second Stir Fry: Thomas Wickham of Wickham's Fruit Farm

Thursday, August 30, 2012

WNYC

You can't rile Thomas Wickham with the prospect of the Stir Fry.  "So, what are you going to ask me?" he said calmly, as producer Joy Y. Wang and I corralled him into the Studio 4 hot seat.  

The man's a farmer, and his family has farmed for generations.  I got the sense that nothing phases him.  Not even the unblinking gaze of the Studio 4 cat behind him.

60-Second Stir Fry: Annalee Sinclair and Robin Shulman

Friday, August 17, 2012

WNYC

Community gardener Annalee Sinclair is no stranger to the hot seat. After all, she gardened in a syringe-infested abandoned lot on the Lower East Side, in the 1990s, when the neighborhood was a scary and violent place. Robin Shulman is also a cool customer.  She should be.  She wrote a book, Eat the City.  I'm trying to write a book proposal of my own, and I know there is no pressure like a deadline.

So, bring on the lightning round of Stir Fry questions!

Jennifer Divello of Patty's Berries and Bunches in Mattituck, on Long Island, does a 'berry' good job handling the heat of the stir fry lightning round of questions. Okay, had to do that. It's been a 'berry' long day.

60-Second Stir Fry: Ron Binaghi III

Some of our Last Chance Foods guests go limp at the thought of the Stir Fry, but not Ron Binaghi III of Stokes Farm in Old Tappan, New Jersey.  Just like his family farm's tomatoes, Binaghi thrives in the heat of the hot seat.

60-Second Stir Fry: Caleb Leech and Ariel Nadelberg

This Stir Fry is less "fry" and more "stir."  Brooklyn Botanic Garden herb curator Caleb Leech and BBG Terrace Café chef Ariel Nadelberg were allowed a do-over of my lightning round of questions, after both were scorched by the heat of the hot seat.

Summertime makes me want to stay far away from anything hot, especially a stove or the hot seat of the 60-Second Stir-Fry. But chef and author Diane Kochilas teaches cooking classes in sunny Greece, so she didn't break a sweat.

Tamar Adler, author of An Everlasting Meal, has shucked and peeled hundreds and hundreds of fava beans during her time in the kitchen at Chez Panisse, so she was unfazed by the prospect of a lightning round of Stir-Fry questions.

Heat. Outside, it's making us sweat and making castelfranco and other greens bolt. Inside, in WNYC's Studio 4, the heat of the 60-Second Stir-Fry lightning round of hard-hitting questions is making Brooklyn Grange's Anastasia Cole Plakias and Ben Flanner nearly come to blows.
