Question 74 // How’d you become a chef? (feat. Shane Oporto & Special Guest Laura Lou)

Shane Oporto is best known for his time as executive chef at Octo Fishbar and “Chef de Cuisine” at La Belle Vie.
 
We talk about how, seemingly overnight, Shane went from working behind the scenes as a Chef to being asked to give interviews and being flown all over the world to cook for private events. Wait… that sounds a lot like my first gig with Owl City, being thrown on a private jet with my close friends to open for The Frey. I tell that too but it has me wondering… is there anything else bassists and chefs have in common? Laura Lou joins Shane and I for drinks at DeGidio’s Restaurant & Bar in St. Paul… let’s jump in a booth with some mics to see what happens.

Question 73 // What’s the official cocktail of New Orleans? (feat. The Sazerac House)

What’s the best way to really taste whisky? How are cocktails and ‘Coffee Houses’ historically connected? Can the way you order a cocktail make you a better traveler? What’s the official cocktail of New Orleans (seriously… it’s the only city in America that’s passed legislation to have an official cocktail!) and how can you make it at home?

 

Join Rob and Sarah as they travel to New Orleans to meet up with their friend Miguel Solorzano, the general manager of The Sazerac House, to answer these questions and more.

 

Recording Location: The Official Tasting Room on the 3rd floor of The Sazerac House in New Orleans
