Matthew Weingarten, Chris Parachini, Joshua Sharkey & Tim Carman
This week on The Main Course Patrick and Katy talk to Matthew Weingarten of Sodexo about the important (and admittedly difficult) process of improving the food in our institutions: schools, museums, stadiums, and more. Next Chris Parachini, owner of Roberta's, stops by to talk about the myriad of projects he and the Roberta's team have going on--including a burgeoning catering wing and a new slice joint in the works. Joshua Sharkey owner of Bark Hot Dogs talks about what good hot dogs are made of, what not-so-good hot dogs are made of, and why minimalism is key to a great dog. Finally Patrick and Katy set off a new series exploring the food scene in cities around the US; food critic Tim Carman talks to them about Chicago hot spots and the diner that Obama made a mecca.
