AUSTIN: Saturdays 10-11 a.m., Talk 1370
We’ve always had a soft spot for Roaring Fork, even when there was only one location here in downtown Austin. With the addition of the soaring glass restaurant looking out over Stonelake, with all of its hiking and biking trails, we have an even softer spot. All because we love foods from a fire. No insult intended to foods from a pan, pot, rack or poacher – well, maybe to foods from a poacher – but vegetables, seafoods and meats simply taste better with a little bit of caramelized char. We visit Stonelake and have a great meal with the chef and general manager, talking about what makes Roaring Fork really tick. In our Grape & Grain tasting segment, we head for Santa Maria on California’s Central Coast for a taste of the wonderful wines from Red Car. All that and a really cool label too!
