You might think you know the EVOO queen, Rachael Ray, but today, we’re spending some time with the SXSW veteran—she’s been attending the festival for the past 20 years—to dive into one of her biggest passions: music. Her love for it is so epic that she’s been throwing one of the biggest SXSW music parties with her husband, John Cusimano, for the past nine years. The event, “Feedback,” combines food and music in one space. So how exactly does a famous food personality become one of the biggest music presenters at SXSW? I sat down with Ray in Austin to discuss her thoughts on musicians’ riders, why she’s hanging out with the likes of Naughty By Nature, and what it takes to make a great musical experience.

Podcast cover

Today, we are bringing you a special bonus episode: Two back-to-back live interviews we recorded at Southbytes, SXSW’s food programming which features panels, talks, and events with some of the most influential people in the food world.

First, I sat down with Andrew Zimmern, food writer and host of Bizarre Foods on the Travel Channel; the guy who’s consumed more innards, creepy crawlies, and odiferous foods than most of us will in our lifetimes. He’s also experienced some of the most profound meals in the most remote communities around the world. But rather than chatting about what it’s like to eat skewered tarantula, I wanted to get his impressions on what it means when a community experiences the death of a dish and the traditions behind it.

Then, I sat down with Austin chef Tyson Cole of Uchi to discuss the past and future of sushi—it’s traditional rules, who’s breaking them, and how American sushi chefs are taking the medium to the next level.

Being a cab driver in NYC isn’t easy. You're drinking coffee to stay awake, then you’ve gotta piss and find some time eat, but there’s nowhere to park. But Punjabi Deli has been an oasis where you could park out front and grab some food. In 2010, the city started construction that made that impossible.
