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

Bob Waggoner

Host of U Cook! with Chef Bob

Today's show is all about chefs. Mark and Francis start the show by discussing a reviewer who wasn't as impartial as he should have been when reviewing restaurants for his college newspaper. Their guest is Bob Waggoner, host of the new PBS show, U Cook! with Chef Bob. Chef Waggoner has run restaurants in France and the United States and has been nominated for several James Beard awards. The discussion moves from how one studies to be a chef, cooking and living in France in the 1980s, moving to the US and learning how to cook Southern food, and then how all of that led to a show on PBS.

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.
