This week on The Main Course, host Patrick Martins welcomes to the show Chef Mike Poiarkoff of Vinegar Hill House. Having been at the restaurant for six months now, Mike shares his experiences so far at the charming Brooklyn spot and what brought him specifically to that kitchen. Patrick and Mike shed light on the somewhat mysterious process of coming into a restaurant as a new chef and "trying out" for the position, with Mike securing his role at Vinegar Hill House by simply cooking his own style of simple, rustic food. Mike goes on to explain his way of cooking with the wood-burning oven at the restaurant and how he, for instance, achieves the perfect crust on a chop. Growing up in a close-knit Russian community in Pittsburgh, Mike was introduced to traditional cooking techniques at a young age and, from the sounds of it, this has given him a unique perspective in the kitchen. This program was brought to you by Rolling Press.

"I didn't attend culinary school, I never worked in a professional kitchen. I had the opportunity to learn from somebody very talented, from scratch... I was pushed early, and that was probably the best way that I could have learned." [11:39]

This week on Snacky Tunes, a solo Darin welcomes the Pit Bastard Frank Davis, and musical guest Miami Drive to the program. Opening the show speaking to Frank about his 20 year background in the music industry, Darin makes the connection between music and food and just how Frank decided to make the career jump to BBQ and grilling. Starting a restaurant in upstate New York in 2010, Frank and his wife honed their skills and though that restaurant closed its doors due to a slow economy post Hurricane Sandy, Frank is back making his mark in the Brooklyn BBQ scene, founding the Bushwick Grill Club, as well as working as the Food Director at Northern Bell restaurant in Williamsburg. In the second half of the show, musical guest Miami Drive hashes it out with Darin talking about how the duo met, their unique approach to songwriting and collaborating, as well as their sunny roots in South Florida. Tune in for the last show of the summer filled with love, pizza, and love for pizza! This program was brought to you by Rolling Press.

"I think the longest I've ever gone without grilling has been, even in the winter, maybe 4 days." [21:31]
