Episode #297

Scott LeibfriedThis week, we have two special guests. Our first guest is my colleague, Kara Rota, the host of QDT's new Clever Cookstr podcast. It's a fun, fast-paced look at what's hot in the world of food and cooking.

Our second guest is celebrity chef Scott Leibfried. As some of you may know, I've spent the past two years working closely with Scott to develop the menu for a brand-new kind of casual restaurant. Our goal was to create a place that had food so good that you would want to eat there every day—and so good for you that you actually could.;

Reviver NYC

The restaurant is called Reviver, and the first of what I hope is many locations opened in May near Columbus Circle in New York City. I know I learned an enormous amount working with Scott over the past two years, and in today's show, Kara talks to Scott about the challenge of creating great-tasting dishes that are also balanced and nutritious, including some tips you can put to use in your own kitchen.
