Celebrating Food With A Pre-Spring Savor
We haven't yet figured out how to convey smell and taste through the radio, but we do have fun talking about food.
Every month our food segment, Savor, brings in food stylist and producer Will Smith. And Will brings in an additional guest with some level of expertise in either growing or preparing food, and often both. The recipe of the month features something that is in-season.
This month, we welcome Nick Stevenson from Dunbar Farms in Medford, part of the Rogue Valley Food Trail, an adventure in ecotourism (or is it "eating tourism?"). Will's recipe is Shaker Herbed Chicken. Join us for a chat that may tickle your taste buds, despite the audio-only delivery.
