We like to think of ourselves as being culinary adventurous, but travel costs a lot of money, so until we get a radio or TV show we have to make due with the magic of books to transport us to exotic edibles and forbidden foods.  Tom's book (believe us, Mr. Bowles, it's better we refer to you informally in the show so we'll stop butchering your last name) is just the ticket to reading about dishes that you could only imagine yourself eating (or not eating).

This week's episode discusses a curry restaurant in Oshawa, as well as our respective first times eating at Indian or "Curry" restaurants.  Mmmmm!  Pardon the gratuitous Red Dwarf references.  Tracy also does a quick review of yet another book about the pleasures of tasty adult beverages - Everyday Drinking by Kingsley Amis.

With St. Patrick's being only 17 days away, here are two great pubs that we've scouted out for your pleasure.  This isn't a pub cast (although beer selection is discussed), but focuses on the amazing food of two fine establishments.  Willie Stout's of Toronto makes burgers more then just pub grub, and fosters the community feeling of a "public house".  J.P. Fitzpatrick & Sons offers traditional Irish dishes with a gourmet spin, right next to one of the best movie theaters (in our opinion) of Durham Region.  You don't have to be a beer enthusiast - although it doesn't hurt! - to sit down in either and enjoy a great lunch or dinner.

    Ep 34 - Tea!

    18Jan10

    This was by no means the only show we're going to do on tea, but here's a ZFC crash coarse on one of mankind's oldest beverages (Ok, one of mankind's oldest non-alcoholic beverages).  Enjoy a cuppa your favourite as you listen to this episode.

    The Good Fare and Cheer of Old England is a book we discovered at the Orillia Library.  We loved it so much we bought a copy, and felt it needed it's own ZFC show to spread the word about how great a book it is!  We are going to look into the copyright information (so far it looks like it has not been renewed and has fallen into Public Domain), so we are also going to work on creating an Audiobook version of it.

    Unfortunately, for the last few weeks, the Zwei Fat Chicks have had the flu and were unable to record.

    Fortunately, we have an unreleased snack to placate you with! We incorrectly refer to the show as "Clarissa and the King's Table" - it is actually "Clarissa and the King's Cookbook" and we found an educational site that you can watch the video on for free:
