The Podcasts

Steve travels to the northwest side of Chicago, along Lawrence Ave., to taste the perfect sandwich, which merges Vietnamese and French flavors for a final bite of a Banh Mi at Nhu Lan Bakery. Back in the studio, Steve and Rick discuss the elements of a Banh Mi and address Chicago's chef shortage.

From vacant lots to roof tops, urban gardens are providing fresh produce to area restaurants. This week on The Feed Podcast, we explore those rich gardens of Chicago and how they are blossoming throughout the neighborhoods. Then Rick makes one of the best salads I've ever had from greens in his garden. No Ranch dressing please!

This week our chef challenge is a bit different.  Usually we select one seasonal ingredient in which Rick and the guest chef create a meal around in 15 minutes.  This week we are on location at Chicago's Green City Market.   Sarah Stegner, of Prairie Grass Cafe in Northbrook, Illinois, first joins Rick to each search for 5 ingredients at the market to make something special.  Then they both head back to the test kitchen to work their magic.  And let me tell you, those dishes were delicious!
