Restaurant TV and Preserving Fruit

Mark and Francis talk about restaurant based "reality" shows such as "The Restaurant" Fox's "Hell's Kitchen" featuring Gordon Ramsay and PBS's "Cooking Under Fire" where contestants compete to work for Todd English (Congratulations! You've won a job!).

Maraschino cherries aren't what they used to be. Once "real" cherries marinated in marachino a liquer from Croatia with a noble and ancient history. We now know them as a sugar syrup coated cherry, dyed red and flavored with almond (yuck). Francis recommends you make your own marachino cherries - use sour cherries and soak in marachino liquer for at least three days. Chef Anthony Bucco also recommends preserving stone fruit.

The Restaurant Guys

Who Are The Restaurant Guys? Every week, Francis Schott and Mark Pascal host the Restaurant Guys, a show that's as informative as it is fun. Francis and Mark own Stage Left Restaurant in the heart of New Brunswick's theatre district, and, along with their expertise in a wide range of fine dining and wine matters, they bring to the table humor and intelligent conversation, perfect for the midday listener. The show includes discussions and interviews with famous chefs, restaurateurs, wine and food writers, critics; and the Guys even give stuff away occasionally.
