San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 47

A refreshed rooftop bar opens in the East Village, Whisknladle Hospitality announces a new project, and UC San Diego “cheese professor” Rachel Dutton schools us on fromage


Published:

In today’s episode of the Happy Half Hour, hosts Erin Chambers Smith, Troy Johnson, and producer Archana Ram discuss local dining news, including rumors about a brick and mortar location for the hush-hush dinner series Cow by Bear, the newly renovated (and newly named) rooftop at Hotel Solamar, and a new two-level market coming to North Park. Plus, Whisknladle Hospitality has announced a new project set to debut in late 2018.

Joining us is Rachel Dutton, assistant professor at UC San Diego’s Division of Biological Sciences, who studies cheese and its microbes. Yes, a professor of cheese! We profile the scientist in our June issue and today Rachel drops by to talk about how her research can lead to better tasting cheese, a must-read food nerd book by Harold McGee, and what it’s like to be married to one of the Cheese Twins, who also took home gold in Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race.

We’re also discussing how scientists just can’t figure out how to make a natural version of Lucky Charms.

We end the show with recommendations for Two People/$50, including Lionfish at the Pendry Hotel, Bahia Don Bravo, The Taco Stand, and Facing East Noodle & Bar.
