This week on U Look Hungry, Helen Hollyman is joined in the studio with chef and sandwich master Tyler Kord. Tyler is the man behind No. 7 and No. 7 Subs, and he’s here talking with Helen about his childhood dream of becoming a racecar-driving marshmallow salesman. Does Tyler actually hate the GrowNYC Greenmarket? Tune in to hear Tyler voice his opinions about seasonal cooking, and the philosophy behind his sandwich-making. Tyler and Helen discuss the saturation of restaurants in New York City, and why that motivates the people at No. 7 to make food a little “weirder.” Tyler also talks about his past life as a musician, and how that has influenced his cooking. This program has been sponsored by Tekserve.
“The term ‘comfort food’ is a little interesting. I don’t want to serve anything that’s too ‘comfortable’… I want it to be challenging.” [18:20]
