Food Guys

Sunday 11:52 AM - 12:00 PM, Thursday 4:54 PM

From favorite seasonal recipes, to the roots of our food traditions, to the politics of food, the Food Guys illuminate the culinary world each Sunday, in this 10 minute program produced by Montana Public Radio.

The Food Guys have also been featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday.

The theme song for "The Food Guys," is a Cole Porter song, "Sunday Morning Breakfast Time," played and sung by Porter himself.

The Food Guys discuss the differences between sweet and sour cherries, and how to bake a delicious slab pie from Montana-grown sweet cherries.

The Food Guys discuss their new cookbook rave, "Bravetart" by Stella Parks. "It's not a labor of love, it's a labor of devotion." says Jon Jackson.

Parks researched the book, a history of desserts, for five years. All sorts of favorites are included - you can make classics at home while you learn about their history.

The Food Guys create a bold and delicious cornbread recipe, great to accompany a good chili dish.

You need three key ingredients for a proper chilli dish: meat, beer, and of course, chilli peppers. Our Food Guys, Jon Jackson and Greg Patent are passionate that Chili powder IS NOT CHILI.

Chunks of meat, beer and fresh ingredients are essential for a good chili. Chili powder is not chili folks! So don't go to the grocery store and buy a pack of powder when you can easily make a great chili by using fresh peppers! "The Food Guys" explain how.

Sugars are creeping into our diets and, "Even if you're reading labels, you have to read the labels with some insight," says Jon Jackson.

"There's a lot of hidden sugars in our foods, that even people who are well-intentioned and disciplined find it difficult to restrain their weight growth because they keep running into hidden sugars."

Listen in now to learn more about where hidden sugars are showing up, and how to spot them on food labels.
