Rodeo, Chef Philippe on This Weekend’s Shows

HOUSTON Saturdays and Sundays 4-5 p.m., NewsRadio 740 KTRH

A Presentation of Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods 

SATURDAY: For our opening and closing segments this week, we are in New Orleans – interviewing Chef Dominique Macquet about how the innovative Creole-tropical cuisine his serving at his brand-new restaurant is shaking things up a bit. In between those chats, we get to talk Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo – from a wine perspective of course. Rodeo Uncorked wine chairman Stephanie Baird chimes in, along with Frank Crapitto of Frank’s Chop House and Crapitto’s, who’s been a part of the wine events since the beginning.  

SUNDAY: In today’s show, we showcase Houston’s newest high-profile eatery, Philippe Restaurant + Lounge, during a long and intriguing interview with Chef Philippe Schmit. Don’t blame us if, along the way, we get tired of just talking and start eating things – right there in the kitchen with Chef Philippe. In our Grape & Grain segment, we explore the wonders of the Mexican Martini with a chef who’s made a new business out of bottling the stuff.

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