The Trucks Are Coming to Delicious Mischief!

Our 21st Year of Eating, Drinking and Telling You About It! 

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

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

SATURDAY: One of the newest and most intriguing trends in the “restaurant business” is the multi-ethnic food truck – some trucks seeming to compete with “sit-down” restaurants and others seeming logical extensions. We chat with the folks behind Eatsie Boys, Fusion Taco, Hit n’ Run Foods and Oh My Gogi about an upcoming festival called Haute Whells devoted to this trend. And just in time for hot weather, we taste some wines with Spec’s wine buyer Collin Williams that are summer-refreshing without being, well, chardonnay. 

SUNDAY: Zimm’s Little Deck is a new, funky, super-casual little place in Montrose that was born of the class long associated with La Colombe d’Or – except that it draws even more on the food traditions of the Zimmerman family’s native New Orleans, filtered through their love affair with the South of France. We’ll let the Zimmermans and their chef tell us all about that.  In our Grape and Grain segment, we sit down for a tasting of wines from Australia’s revered Barossa Valley. 

 

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

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

In the mornings, when you’re in downtown Austin, you can’t do much better than the offerings from the bakery at the Driskill Hotel. We’ll do a tasting with the pastry chef at the Driskill, considering just what people want in the morning – and how that changes as time for dessert after lunch and dinner rolls around. And in our Grape and Grain segment, we sit down for a tasting of wines from Australia’s revered Barossa Valley.
