Here we are! Episode six of my new podcast called WTF? – Where’s the Food? is here. On this show, I talk to Dan Delaney, who was nominated for a James Beard Award in 2014 for American restaurateur about the nomination, how it has changed his life, about his former video podcast called Street Food and all about his chicken restaurant in New York called Delaney Chicken (2:01).
That time Dan lost to Burger Beast in a Hot Dog eating competition
Then, Nick gives you food news (22:45) and talks to Kimia from Kimia Kravings about her blog, some of her favorite spots in New York and if she has any tips for someone looking to start their own blog (26:13).
Finally, Nick gives you the food porn of the week (33:45) and talks to Hendrick’s Gin Brand Ambassador, Fred Parent about what makes Hendrick’s so great, some great fall cocktails you could make at home and we’ll find out about the Hendrick’s Gin Grand Garnisher coming to Miami in December (35:05).
