My Friend Pippy and Purple Haze Hot Dogs


In my third episode of One Milion Stringbeans I have a great chat with Heather Wiliams, owner of Pippy's Hot Dog Truck and former New World Home Cooking rockstar server. We chatted on her deck in Round Top, NY with cheap mics, so deal with it. I then finish with an amazing recipe for Purple Haze Kraut, bringing my famous psychedelic hot sauce to your BBQ ensemble!

Music in this episode is again by my Boston band SKIN, Kingston's Hellkeeper and we finish with Kakania, an African style instrumental featuring amazin' sax by the one and only Michael Evans. 

On Bourdain, sweet peas and life’s strange


On the second installment of One Million Stringbeans I tell you my feelings about who Anthony Bourdain was and why he counted. I also dedicate an orginal song, Life's Strange to him. I wrote the song in 1979 but didn't record it until 2015 with my pal and original drummer, Kerry Miller. It certainly seems appropriate.

The recipes from this episode features first of the season Summer Sweet Peas in two of my favorite childhood dishes; macaroni and peas and risi i pisi.

Music this week is from my Boston band SKIN, Terry Orlando's Kingston, NY band Hellkeeper and from my first band from New haven,  Hot Bodies.
