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

TV Food Network Names Stage Left "Best Burger in New Jersey" / Nina Planck Returns

Food Network Magazine determined the best burger in every state of The Union. The winner for NJ: Stage Left, of course. So now The Food Network and NY Magazine have joined the chorus who recognize our burger as best in the land.

Nina Planck, food writer, entrepreneur, and mother, returns to the Restaurant Guys to discuss her latest book, "Real Food for Mother and Baby". Drawing from her childhood growing up in rural Virginia, Nina remains a strong advocate for traditional foods and is undoubtedly a leading expert on farmers' market and local food. In fact, she created the first farmer's market in London and went on to direct New York City's Greenmarkets. Nina first shook the culinary world with her groundbreaking book "Real Food", in which she challenged the way we look at old-fashion, rich (and the often extremely fatty) foods like butter, whole milk, and lamb. Inspired by the birth of her son Julian, Nina extends her "real food" philosophy to motherhood and dispels many of the myths and misleading ideas about nutrition for mother and baby both. Nina, a contributor to the New York Times and a reporter for TIME, currently resides in New York City with her husband Rob Kaufelt (owner of Murray's Cheese and Highland Park, NJ native) and their son Julian.
