Show Notes for Say Yum 2005-02-15
Its all local tonight cuisine and music scene...in a way. In this show we've got some thai drunken noodles to cook up inspired locally. Tonight's music is all stuff playing in the Bay Area this weekend.
Thanks for the comments. We've got a new fan Todd.
Thanks Sheri for being such a loyal fan
Even an anonymous comment...all very helpful
So in case you're going to be in town here are some options I'd recommend as far as music.
Hey Pocky Way (8:49) by Dark Star Orchestra Feb 18th - 20th at the Great American Music Hall.
Thai cooking website (See the Recipe Follow-Up section for more info on the cookbook, and the meal).
Jazz for Chazz (2:00) & S.I.L.I. (2:00) by Mingus Amungus
Mixcast Live is still treating us right for producing these things. Thanks for calling us a "delicious foodcast"!
World of Change & Stanky Fingers by The Get Down playing at the Boom Boom Room on Sunday Feb. 20th.
Thanks again for the feedback...keep it coming. Please leave comments on our blog Say Yum or by emailing us at sayyum@gmail.com. Feel free to send audio comments to that address, we've got the space (for now). Thanks to Amy Gahran from Contentious for adding Say Yum to the Women In Podcasting: The List.
We're working on bringing our quality up, trying to limit to podsafe music, and are going to start linking to products we mention (like the Thai cookbook, "It Rains Fishes" by Kasma Loha-Unchit) at Amazon through their associate program. Who knows maybe we can make enough money to cover our hosting costs.
The plan is to try and get out a podcast every other day, or 3 days a week on average. Of course this will vary with business trips, vacations, or out of town visitors, but we'll keep you posted. As always, don't forget to "Say Yum".
Recipe Follow-Up
The noodles were very drunken, and very delicious :) The eggplant was great too. We based the noodle recipe on the Drunken Noodle recipe found in "It Rains Fishes" by Kasma Loha-Unchit. Instead of seafood we used thinly sliced, boneless skinless, chicken breasts. Also, we used thin rice noodles instead of the fresh, wide variety. We substituted mushrooms for the broccoli and tomato. We do like our noodles very drunk, so we usually end up doubling or tripling the liquid ingredients in the sauce so the noodles are nice and juicy :) Definitely check out the book for the full recipe and for other tasty ones. Kasmas's cookbook is such great a reference to thai cooking, ingredients and recipes as is her website is. You can find recommendations for brands of ingredients and the eggplant recipe on Kasma's site, along with information on her cooking classes if you're in the bay area. She also has another cookbook called Dancing Shrimp.

Wow, you guys totally mentioned me! Haha. I finally hooked myself up with a Blogger account so I could comment non-anonymously. Were the drunken noodles very drunken? ;) I need to stop listening to you show in the morning at work. It makes me hungry!

The sound quality and mic noise was soooo much better on this podcast! I will be curious to hear your new wireless microphones. One thing I really like is when I can hear the food being prepared and cooked...chopping and sizzling noises are most excellent! The other thing I like is when you guys talk about your day while you are cooking, it makes me feel like I am hanging out in your living room with you while you are cooking. Nice job guys!

I may even have some suggestions of yummy stuff I would be interested in hear you make. :)

Until next time...YUM!

Yum! There I said it. I love drunken noodles, Thievery Corporation and MixCast Live, so you pushed all my buttons with this episode. I'm definately going to give this recipe a try. Thanks for the mention!

Thanks to both of you for your awesome comments. We felt really good about last night's show and its good to hear it from others.

Todd - the noodles were very drunken...couldn't you hear me keep asking for beers. Once we get wireless I guess I'll have to get up and get 'em myself.

James - when I first read your post I thought, I didn't press any of the effects buttons in last nights podcast...I mean, those are your buttons aren't they ;) But then I got it. I'm glad you liked it. We certainly like your Mixcast Live.

Please email us suggestions if you have them...either music or food. We love trying and listening to new things.

Work up your appetite. We'll be posting another one tomorrow...and you know what it's going to make you say right?

So tell us what kind of beer you drink. I am a total beer connesiuer, so I am curious.

As for food suggestions, it seems like whenever you guys do a show, it's always something that seems semi-gourmet to me. Do you ever do anything really...like...down home, stick to your ribs type meals?

At Wed Feb 16, 08:46:00 PM PST, Blogger Devan said...

Well, right now I'm drinking a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale...our standard. I'm a beer connesiuer myself, but it's starting to show if you know what I mean.

I'm all for comfort food and simplicity from time to time. For example, tonight we just had some grilled cheese sandwiches with cream of mushroom soup and caesar salad. That's an old standard (at least the soup and grilled cheese) when we're feeling tired.

I think doing the show has gotten us cooking fancy a bit more often, but maybe we should even record some our old standards...or yours. We've found that our old friends, and new internet friends enjoy the feeling of being in our kitchen with us. So maybe the recipe doesn't need to be over-the-top every time.

Any suggestions? Beer, food, or music? It'd be fun to make this more interactive.

Oh good, I feel better knowing you had grilled cheese, haha. One of my favorites is grilled cheese with tomato soup. So, good.

As for beer...do you ever tend to match beer to the food you are eating, like with wines? I have a bazillion beers I know of (in fact I collect bottles from around the world) so I will have to give you some suggestions sometime.

You know one meal I might like to hear you guys do is ribs. I am such a huge rib fan, but they never seem to come out as good and tender as they do when you eat them at a restaurant. You guys do tend to include quite a few foods I don't personally like, but don't let that stop you. I am just a little more picky when it comes to food. Or maybe you guys should try a desert show one of these times!

Well, beer pairing and ribs sound like excellent ideas. I think you'll love our next podcast...coming in a matter of minutes.

It's been a little tough to put the podcasts together which is why we reduced the frequency of our shows to 3 times a week. Although, we're really just doing what we'd normally do: cooking dinner, listing to music and talking about our day so it's been coming fairly naturally to us and don't mind the extra time it takes to compile the show.

Thanks for listening, and feel free to send us suggestions or more comments any time! We really enjoy the interactive feedback developing with our show.

I believe paid podcasts are going to be the next wave of podcasts that we’ll see, just like cable tv and satellite tv were the pay-per-view wave that followed free television. Click here: podcasting money.

It's nice to see that someone takes the time to have his own blog. Blogs are a new way to develop new Ideas and new products, to enrich human life. I give my little contribution as well, as Aristotle said one Man alone might not find out everything there is to know about the Universe, but one find a little and another one another little and so on, until human beings will discover everything.

Thanks for your time.

If you want to visit my blogs:
