60-Second Stir Fry: Dale Talde

Friday, April 05, 2013

WNYC

Famed Pork Slope chef Dale Talde put on a game face as my questions came his way, but I detected some flinching when I asked him about his vacation plans this year. He had to repeat the question.  "Vacation plans?"

He's known as "The Grassman" at the Union Square Greenmarket in Manhattan, but don't get any crazy ideas about the type of plant he's pushing.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
