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.

Dylan’s Whiskey, Whopper Farts and Zoodles



My first episode of one million stringbeans (yes stringbeans as one word, like my inventory sheets). I'm flying solo this episode. I chat about the closing of New World Home Cooking, give an overview of Bob Dylan's new Heaven's Door whiskey line, cover a news article about fast food and infertility and then lay out a recipe for Zucchini Noodles with shrimp and ramp pesto. 

I'm excited to be using tastes of my music from my personal archives and from my son Terry King's metal bands throught the podcast. The intro music is Troubled Sleep, from my Boston Band SKIN recorded and released as a single in 1986. The next piece, some serious metal, is Cycle, my Terry's Kingston Band Hellkeeper. It launches the podcast well. The rest of the music (aside from a few Apple Loops) is from a session of home studio instrumental recordings I did for my Public Tv series Ric Orlando's TV Kitchen, which aired in 2003. Use your stuff up I say! Enjoy. Give feedback. Share with friends.
