Culinary Travel, Scott Tycer on Weekend’s Shows

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

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

SATURDAY: We’re in Austin this week, talking with a very creative young company that offers travel for those who love to eat and drink – which includes just about everybody likely to be reading this. Petite Peche specializes in richly agricultural places like Tuscany and Provence, but they’ll take you to Paris if you insist. And in our Grape & Grain segment, we catch up with Spec’s “allocation specialist” Nate Rose, for a tasting of wines the wineries make so little of they don’t want us to be able to buy them. That’s where Nate comes in. 

SUNDAY: Chef Scott Tycer has always been a welcome fixture on this show, all the way back to the time that his Aries was the toast of both local and national food media. There’s been a lot of foie gras under the bridge since then, however, and Tycer’s main gig these days is running Kraftsmen Café – the comfortable and stylish retail offshoot of his wholesale Kraftsmen Baking. In our Grape and Grain segment, we taste and talk about the wines of Bridlewood with golden-locked-surfer-dude-winemaker David Hopkins.
