Comedy & Food with Adam Minnick and Matthew Frommeyer

Episode 15

00:0000:00

Welcome back!

This episode has taken me way too long to publish.  This was recorded back in August, fortunately I was finally able to get to it today.  

I was able to sit down with an ol' friend of mine and college classmate, Michael Torres.  Michael is the Sous Chef at The Florentine restaurant located downtown Chicago.  We were able to chat about how he got started as a chef, his love for stand-up comedy, and what movies had been filmed just outside of his restaurant.  

As always, thanks for listening.

Welcome to Episode 14.

In this episode we had the chance to sit down with Chef Nick Ellison from The Precinct here in Cincinnati and Bengals Cheerleader April Marie.

Nick discusses how he became a chef at Jeff Ruby's The Precinct, his first job in the food industry, and how he met The Karate Kid...Ralph Macchio.

Since it's football season, we decided to change things up with an NFL cheerleader instead of a comedian for this episode.  April talks about how she got into cheerleading, her experiences as a teacher, and what it's like to be a Ben-Gal Cheerleader.

Thanks for listening!

We apologize for the delay in getting Episode 13 out, we're in the process of changing up the intro and outro music.  Shouldn't be too long.

In Episode 13 we were able to sit down with Jackson Travis Rouse of Bauer Farm Kitchen located downtown Cincinnati.  Jay Armstrong, Cincinnati comedian, found time in his busy schedule to sit down with us as well.

Jackson discusses how he became a chef, ordering a pig's head at his restaurant, and how he used to play in a punk rock back.

Episode 12

00:0000:00

In episode 12, I had a chance to sit down with comedian Glenn Childress and chef Andrew Vogel.  This has been the longest episode yet, however it didn't feel like it.  Had a blast sitting down with these two.  Glenn discusses being a father, his worse show, and how he comes up with material.  Andrew, chef of Jean-Robert's Table and culinary arts professor at Cincinnati State, talks about how he became a chef at one of Cincinnati's top restaurants, his love for cooking, and who inspired him to pick up an apron.  Unfortunately Matthew couldn't make it, he had to cover at his restaurant since one of his employees called in.

Enjoy and thanks for listening!

Hello and welcome back to What The Fork.

I apologize for taking this long to get episode 9 out, but with traveling overseas, doing shows in Sweden and coming home to various projects after a 2 1/2 week tour, getting this episode out took longer than expected.
