On this week’s show, Steve and Rick take a closer look at curing and smoking fish and how that affects both texture and flavor.  They head to the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago to the new seafood market Snaggletooth where owners Bill Montagne and Jennifer Kim are curing ocean trout. They are later joined by Ethan Forman of the artisanal salmon smoke house H. Forman & Son in London for a taste of certified smoked salmon.

Chicago is a melting pot when it comes to cuisine. We have pretty much every country covered, in terms of representation. Not just the obvious places, like Mexico, France, Thailand and Japan, but also lesser-known countries, like Peru, El Salvador and Kyrgystan. But up until a few years ago, there was nowhere to satisfy a craving for chamuças or lacassa rice noodles, or even mackerel chutney. Thanks to the persistence, and skill, of chefs like Abraham Conlon and his partner, Adrienne Lo, Fat Rice has become THE go-to restaurant for all things Macanese. And this week, Rick Bayless and Steve Dolinsky  welcome both Abe and Adrienne to the show.
