FOOD TALK STL show schedule

Food Talk STL will not be heard on Saturday, September 29, as KFNS will carry the Illinois-Penn State football game.

Our show will be on the air on October 6, 13 and 20 at 11:00 a.m. each of those Saturdays.

On October 6, guests will include George Mahe of St. Louis magazine, Chuck Dressel of Mt. Pleasant Winery and Caryn Dugan, a local vegan cook and consultant. We will give away several pairs of tickets to the Soulard Chili Cookoff, which is set for October 20.

On October 13, guests will include chef Carl Hazel of 1111 Mississippi and Beth Huch of St. Louis Culinary Tours.

On October 20, we will broadcast live from the Soulard Chili Cookoff. Guests will include Dan Kopman of Schlafly Bottleworks (and representing St. Louis Originals) and Lisa Lillien, author of Hungry Girl to the Max. Lisa will be appearing on Thursday, November 1, at the new Dierberg’s in Des Peres. (We will be giving away copies of her book during the show on 10/20.)

On October 27, the Illini start early, so no show.

Saturday, September 22

Guests on Food Talk STL this week are chef/restaurant owner Gerard Craft, who’ll talk about all the new things he has going on, and Jenny Agnew who teaches writing at SLU and blogs for St. Louis magazine’s Relish blog.

Also, Scott Thomas will provide scoop on the Backyard Barbeque Bash in Arnold. And we have many announcements and news items to share.

And we’ll give away a copy of the new St. Louis Chefs’ Recipes cookbook. Valued at 19.95. This will be a “call in and win” contest, so listen for the cue to call.

Thanks for listening Saturday at 11:00 a.m. on 590, the Fan, KFNS.

NO Food Talk STL show on September 15

The University of Illinois football game starts early this weekend, so we will not be on the air this Saturday. We knew when we began the show that there might be some preemptions along the way.

Food Talk STL will be back on the air on Saturday, September 22.

In the meantime, listen to some of our previous segments by clicking on the “Past Shows” tab at the top of this page.
