A Restaurant Guy

“I’ve told so many people that [Restaurant Guys Radio] is basically Car Talk for Food, and I mean that in the most positive way. I don’t know how often you guys listen to Car Talk but that’s quite a compliment.” >> Listen: hi | lo

Wild American Shrimp

Kim Chauvin, co-owner of the Mariah Jade Shrimp Co.

Mark and Francis talk to Kim Chauvin, a third generation shrimper from Louisiana. She and her husband Chuck own and operate the Mariah Jade Shrimp Company. They have just received the first ever "Wild American Shrimp" certification. The Chauvins actually go into the Gulf of Mexico and catch shrimp in the wild. If you have never tasted real shrimp you are missing a treat. Much of the shrimp on the market is dumped by six countries. These shrimp do not live in the seas, rather they are raised in ponds that are then drained and put on conveyor belts. This method of aquaculture is efficient in terms of keeping costs down, but doesn't make for a tasty product. The Guys encourage you to buy real shrimp from the Mariah Jade Shrimp Company.

Need a holiday gift for the "foodie" on your list? Mark and Francis recommend a great book "With a Measure of Grace". Written by Jen Castle & Blake Spalding co-owners of "Hell's Backbone Grill" in Bolder, Utah. They prepare beautiful food in this remote place. They are coming to Stage Left to prepare some of their delicious food which we will pair with some great wines. Either the book or a gift certificate would make a great holiday gift! You can get the book or make reservations for the dinner through the Stage Left website.

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.
