Jessica’s celebrity co-host was Aaron Grafe, her colleague at Young’s Market, who educated our listeners on all things agave. Todd Hanley of Hotel Congress then joined the fun with everything you need to know about the upcoming Agave Heritage Week and Agave Fest. Steve Stratigouleas of Reforma was also on hand to discuss his agave menu (nearly 300 selections!), and his modern expressions of traditional Central Mexican cuisine. Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Dine Out For Safety

We just love it when great causes collide with memorable culinary and cocktail moments, and we dedicated this show to an event bringing them all together to end violence in our community…Dine Out For Safety!

Josh Proctor, Matt Russell, Susan Fulton & Kristine Hall

Our venue for this show was Mama’s Hawaiian BBQ, one of the participating eateries in the event, and we definitely got into the aloha spirit. Our celebrity co-host was Kristine Hall of the Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault who talked about the dining event and the programs that will benefit from it. We also caught up with Mike Mallozzi of Borderlands Brewing Company and Susan Fulton of Gourmet Girls Bakery/Bistro who discussed why it was so important to them to participate in Dine Out For Safety every year.

The Loco Moco, with ground beef, fried egg, rice, and beef gravy!

Our featured guest was Josh Proctor of Mama’s Hawaiian BBQ who talked about what he had planned for the event while transporting our palates to paradise with some authentic Hawaiian plates including Spam, Portuguese sausage, eggs, and the Loco Moco! We love our mamas!


The Capital of Cuban Cuisine

Cuba has been in the news a lot these days, so we decided to head over the capital of Cuban cuisine in Pima County for this week’s show…Cuban Blaze!

Chef Eston Stogner, David Duran, Maritza Monclava-Duran, Matt Russell & Chris DeSimone

Our celebrity co-host was Chris DeSimone, host of Wake Up Tucson, who shared some of his own foodie stories and reflections. We then welcomed Rotarians John Lee and James Mandolini who revealed all the information on the upcoming Tucson Taste of Chocolate. Cuban Blaze owners Maritza Monclava-Duran and David Duran sat down with us as well to introduce their hot new concept that pays tribute to the culinary traditions of Cuba. They also introduced us to their executive chef, Eston Stogner, who shared a little about his own journey and what excites him most about Cuban cuisine.

The Cohiba, a rolled and fried version of the Cuban sandwich! And four come to an order!

We were excited by his ropa vieja and his Cohiba, a traditional Cuban sandwich reimagined as an appetizer, rolled up and fried with a cooling dipping sauce. What a blazin’ broadcast!


For the Kids

While Matt was out of town on assignment, guest host Mark Irvin took over the mic for this show dedicated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tucson and their annual food and beverage extravaganza known as The Event! Mark’s guests included some of the people behind this event such as Chef Omar Huerta of North Italia, Debbie Wagner of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tucson, Bruce Suppes and Tamra Briley, The Event co-chairs, and Karla Figueroa Leon, 2017 Youth of the Year!
