For my birthday show I wanted to air one of my favorite interviews ever, Nick Roger. He is the star and creator of the documentory movie, In Queso Fever. The story of cheese dip and how it was created her in Arkansas. You have to go see it at cheesedip.net. The cheese dip festival will be on October 20th at the Cliniton Library. Go to the website and get all the info. It is really fun.
On October 5th , 2002 my first interview with Evette Brady of Restaurant 1620 aired for Arkansas Cooks! I never thought I would be doing this for 10 years, but here we are. Ironically, Evette’s Restaurant 1620, recently reopened at Savoy-1620. Her nephew, Tim Morton has joined Payne Harding and John Mashing in the back of the house and Rick Qualls is the General Manager. Evette is going to do some catering, and her head chef days are behind her. I was very happy to have her as my first guest and will never forget how excited she was about the show. Over the past 10 years I have been so fortuate to be around very creative and amazing chefs along with great people from the food industry. The fans are wonderful and really have made the show what it is. I also want to thank KUAR for their support and the great producer they introduced me to, Travis Hill! Travis no longer works for KURA and continues to produce my show. His commitment is amazing and I really cound not to this without him! Thanks Travis! I also have to say thanks to my family for supporting me as well espesically, Bev Twedt, Brennan Taylor and my amazing husband, Paul Cantrell. They mean everything to me! Here’s to many more years of amazing chefs, cooks and people like you, the fans!
