Marfa on This Weekend’s DM in Austin

Toshi’s Date Pudding at Cochineal

AUSTIN: Saturdays 10-11 a.m., Talk 1370

As some regular listeners understand by now, we have a strong love affair going with the Far West Texas town of Marfa – though more for its real roots in the ranch and border experiences than for its transplanted importance in modern art. In this hour, we make our way around town to see who’s cooking what – visiting with longtime friends like Tom Rapp and Toshi Sakihara of Cochineal, the folks behind the incredible Food Shark “taco truck” in the center of everything, the Houston couple who’ve turned extra space in their real estate office into a satisfying wine bar and food destination, and the Austin couple who reinvented the coffee shop to include a laundromat. According to legend, moving to Marfa is all about “reinventing yourself.” Sometimes, we learn, that process can be downright appetizing.
