Food Talk

AIR DATE: February 23, 2010

Max Jacobson and John Curtas visit with Mitchell Davis, Vice President of the James Beard Foundation, about the foundation, its awards, and the art of food writing. Cities like Las Vegas tend not to fare very well when James Beard Awards are handed out, Davis has some ideas about why this is (hint: it has something to do with New York...).

Max and John will also talk to Bob Howald and Kristin Sande of Valley Cheese and Wine, who tells us what southern Nevadans like to eat from a specialty food store (compared to other parts of the country).

We also hear recommendations for the top food marketplaces in the valley and hear Max and John spar over three area restaurants in "Eat It or Beat It."
