Mike Sula, restaurant critic for the Chicago Reader, and Sarah Freeman, contributing editor for Eater Chicago, help sort through Chicago's many options.

Typically here on the show, when we talk preserves we think kimchi or pickles, smoked fish or cured salmon, but today we’re heading into preserved fruit territory This week Rick invites Sean Pharr, chef at The Bristol in Chicago, to stop by the Frontera Test Kitchen and see what he could do with preserved lemons.

10 years ago, the Terroir Symposium began as a way to bring Canada’s hospitality industry together, through networking, education and collaboration. But over the past few years, the annual, one-day event in Toronto has welcomed presenters.  On this week’s show, Steve and Rick speak with Founder and Executive Director Arlene Stein.  And if you happen to find yourself in Toronto, we thought, why not ask Chris Nuttall-Smith, Toronto Restaurant Critic and the National Food Writer for The Globe and Mail for some places to check out.

One of the most rewarding things as a chef and restaurateur, is to see young, talented, hard-working employees spend time learning their trade, then eventually moving on to start their own businesses. In this show, Steve and Rick break bread with one of Rick’s former employees, Paul Kahan.  He has been on quite a hot streak the past decade or so, having launched a restaurant group responsible for such Chicago gems as Blackbird, The Publican, Avec, The Violet Hour, Big Star and Nico Osteria.  They talk mistakes being a part of creating great food, supporting staff and moving into the United Center and O’Hare Airport.
