Ep. 3: Tasting Menu Smackdown:
Tulsa State Fair vs. The French Laundry
November 4, 2016 - In honor of the election season we all wish would end, it’s the most American of battles… no Dems v. Repubs, no "Blue v. Red”, this is Ultra-High-Calorie Meal v. Ultra-High-Calorie Meal. It's Corn Dog versus Salmon Tartare Coronet, Brisket-Cheesy-Fries versus Sweet-Butter-Poached Lobster Fricassée. It’s the 2016 Tulsa State Fair facing down a 2012 visit to Napa’s 3-Michelin-Starred The French Laundry!
How will Strauss and Phelps survive course after course of complete and total over-indulgence? These are the GREATEST FOOD EXCESSES OF OUR TIME going toe to toe… do not miss one riveting minute! Hear about how Phelps had to call in reinforcements in a moment of weakness facing down the dreaded Donut-Cheeseburger. Hear how Strauss’s dining companion collapsed in the face of just too much great food and wine… Who will be left standing…? And what about the mechanical bull??
Special Phone Guest: Steve Clark (actual survivor of the donut-cheeseburger)
