San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 23

Gourmet Indian street food debuts in La Jolla, a long-awaited sandwich shop comes to Encinitas, and chef Daniel Wollinsky of Cucina Sorella stops by


Published:

On this week’s Happy Half Hour, hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson and producer Archana Ram share all the latest in dining and drinking news, including the debut of Masala Street in La Jolla and Moto Deli in Encinitas.

In Hot Topics, we talk about two recent shockwaves in the food industry—the deaths of Big Mac inventor Jim Delligatti and General Tso’s chicken creator Peng Chang-kuei.

Plus, Cucina Sorella chef de cuisine Daniel Wollinsky stops by to chat about cooking his way across the globe, what it’s like to work as a saucier, and what he learned from interning at Italy’s Osteria Francescana, the restaurant made uber-famous in Netflix’s Chef’s Table series.

We also talk Small Bites, including a great date night restaurant, the best things we ate this month, and the trend of room temperature cocktails.
