Welcome back it's the third course of the food show we've had our appetizer soup salad. And toothpick and now we're moving on to the on trade. Ando which will be served today with Brussels sprouts. Brussels sprouts. X it's funny. Brussels sprouts were kind of a joke food for a long time view if you ever wanted to think of something that nobody really like he would just bring up. On Brussels sprouts when in fact a lot of people didn't like it in the they're kind of fun to look at they look like little baby. Cabbages. The very closely related to cabbages support of that whole family that is. All of the things like. Collie flower and and broccoli and all of those things all in that same family they are yeah. What did you say. Hello. Crew separates vegetables exactly. Could've said it better myself with that. So it's a a big part of the the scene out there and furloughed. A lot of it was grown around here's effect it's still being grown around here. Particularly. Along the river. And all of a sudden. All the gourmet chefs. Are serving. Brussels sprouts right and left and not the old way of just boil and are steaming it either what they do. A more often than not is gruel them if you can imagine that it does come out pretty good and they in my family. Both of the girls in the family my wife and my daughter they both law that. And I've always I always have liked it so Brussels sprouts. And get on that to news. Can't remember why in the world I would have brought that up except that it is become kind of hip. Will you I was thinking about that now that I mention it. Earlier today. What to you. Constitutes. A hot happened and rest. They via a rest and that is the hippest restaurant and Genentech which would you say is that hippest. New Orleans restaurant in the city. Eerie to me your thought about that if you have one. And if you don't have won it could be because. Your mind is down about where I AM and that is. I have a paste or old rest I always have even when I was in my twenties I I like old investment. And I still do. And though when it is a maverick when I travel to any other part of the world I always go looking for the oldest restaurants around. And I find them very interest and bought. All investments tend to. Invite old customers. And of course is nothing wrong with being an old customer why should your age in any way affect the kind of things that you you like to eat. I don't know. But than this that has become an issue in some adjustments we've. We fortunately don't have too many of them right now but this one in particular who. Just to save of the signaled any of it. IE will save few words about. It's a restaurant that's been around for about forty years. They are consistently good every time I go there which I do it may be. Five or six times a year. I just I love what they they do. And whenever I suggest that anyone they say oh. Compassion you go there I mean it's just nothing but really really old people there. Why should make it beats. But then we can take this from the complete opposite end of the spectrum and look for restaurants that are. Our. Very much in the boobs on wall kindness that you use in include including things like. The kind of food that they serve the kind of club style that they serve it. We have the the millennial generation moving in and changing the way we think about a lot of issues. One thing you can see more and more and more of its lesson lesson less countries. Lot of little courses that some in the course. Well it's Jerry is over here on the blue on Gerri welcome. And there. Yeah went did you bullets are live product. Lake front west ham and I wore it out there right refer shelters. Brad Pitt Clinton and the assumption you know close to the open market Billy right writes Boylan. Lenovo words that are effect. Yeah and. I'm iron I don't know I've never seen it before what is it. Are you might be a person you'd be. Late but it does that matters shelled the vote. Yeah I always era I was zero a week ago exactly to that today. And I was looking at it but I saw the shelters and everything but it didn't is this like a. I just. And seeing gambit. Commercial. He could open up please shelter number one which is very vocal when I'm around notre. And like so lighten it used to be here where dimples well we'll pick it up in and day out there. And just a little cool it or video and they would they do. Benches. It may look bad carrier and they they could not make it possible. But he is an emotional. The thing and did it you know right there. With the green globe so yeah in awhile. No that's true. Well I think it's a great idea and lifted if you have the league's view from there than you really got beat well Dietrich you know right direction Robert Gates so. So this is this is it just so I can get my head around this. It is in an existing shelter building. And only done that they do untrue it is that what my little wooden bench around the square areas separated nickel picnic bench out amendment and tensions on the need to show them your audio call operation would make. Just goes garage I broke down when he around the home on where you were on the but otherwise should come about their walls opened up at a late. And I believe in most people's equal pay and have a legal. And social few of the items and why and that type of thing in the these settings look and open June the other thought that but more like all of and so whenever they bit of friction it up and just some mature as this one and how to go to work out you know bird went acceptable course. Yes that's the first thing the game in my mind and well. Well I if they get that off the ground and I know that the market will respond to them favorably because him. I ever had wanted to bring guns.

What thank you thanks thanks for calling it's the food show and now we have Ian calling us on the green flown. At the. I'd tell them I'm at it as you've got truffle oil. I had a little trouble and in Philadelphia an Italian a pot it would trim. And travel well I've never used it I don't know about it to tell me about it. Truffle oil most of it is not perfect every version of run into them leaving it open in case there some that this is not true. There is that contains no actual truffles and writer it. It is you what the what they basically do is they they called the two things down and its winds of being in at a flavored ala. But it's pretty cool it. And the way you use it is totally different than the way we use any other kind of whale is so instead of well putting him in the pain and insulting something and Torre you know that kind of deal. You use it as a kind of and not make up you urge you make up your bench with Everett. Reports the B let's say crab meat and Belgian on the system to make its. And then you take the little bottle of oil and you just like put drops. On covering everything. You'd you know wanted flooded in that you just need you know drops of it and it adds that truffle flavored witches. Controversial. People love it really love that people who don't love it don't get it at all. So I love it myself but the it's not something I use a lot also. If you have like a year old little Bob this use it up soon because the flavors. And olive oil just generally he oxidized his and you you really lose. Occasionally I'll it and make it recurring decision spinach pasta which. So I'd milk and butter and Gillick and such and shrimp and the Google can't correct at a time and in targeting gathered at a few drops in the oil. Yeah just a toss it around with you know just that little drizzle of the olive oil and in the is pretty darn good at what you just described I'm sure it's gonna be delicious. Where. Oh it was good he already did this a partner. Nobody trying to they all. And let strikeout and until our good on the bottom but then you turn. It's pretty darn expensive. But there are four. And I haven't seen it that expensive. More electorate of one east but it could be that. It has been watered down even more and maybe some errands or price where you give it figured out critical. Error brought all here. They'd probably do have it and if you can't find it in the supermarket the police the will would be Mort once. I wondered about it. They get a lot of things in there like that in that category. Oh Garrett I'd be very surprised that they have. Well thanks for calling you.

Not a lot of restaurants where that would turn up in that part. The whole. The river ridge Harry hand area is very very shy of the enough rest.

The time had come to stop. Every restaurant in town from serving exactly the same food which was basically what was going on Ella Brennan used to call it interchangeable menus and she was. So. A lot of a lot of the potential as a tourist who had been looking to get in the business. And a lot of these guys were on the young side. They came out with this new concept that was very distinctly new war and you couldn't he couldn't miss. On just the design of the place the kind of menu that they had what the menu was totally. And all of the preparations were we're going to a new channels for example over it kept XP Isa. They were doing grilled fish bowl of cooked over charcoal or wood even in some cases.
