What's Cookin' Wednesday - The Informed Eater
Our favorite foodie, Patrick Evans-Hylton, joins us in the studio today. We'll talk with Dr. David Kessler, former commissioner of the FDA, author of The End of Overeating about why it's so hard to say 'no' to some foods. We also speak with Dr. John LaPuma and local chef and cookbook author Janie Jacobson about maximizing the nutritional benefit in what you eat so that you get the most out of your meals. Join us!
Studio Snack: Tomato Dipping Sauce
From Chef Patrick Evans-Hylton
3/4 cup tomato juice (I prefer homemade)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons sugar (I prefer a natural, unrefined sugar)
1-1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Place all ingredients in a large bowl (or blender) and whisk to thoroughly incorporate.
To serve, pour in a bowl olive oil on a 1:2 ratio of oil to dipping sauce.
