In this episode, we take on serious culinary projects. Beard Award-winning Charleston pitmaster Rodney Scott shares with us the ethos of whole hog barbecue. We learn to make paella on the grill with America’s Test Kitchen. The builder of a community oven in Johnson, Vermont tells us about how oven is becoming a centerpiece for the town. And Francis joins Chef Justin Smillie for a lesson in making one of his most unforgettable dishes, tomato panade, a fresh tomato bread pudding brimming with garlic, fresh herbs and olive oil. Francis talks with listeners about using the fat and rich gelatin left over from shredded pork, and cooking with artichoke leaf pasta.
