San Diego Happy Half Hour Podcast: Episode 42

In today’s HHH, hosts Erin Chambers Smith and Troy Johnson along with producer Archana Ram talk about the buzziest dining news—from Cohn Restaurant Group’s new three-part concept in Hillcrest to a high-end theater complex coming to the Gaslamp.

Joining us is Clinton Prager, one half of the bread-baking duo behind Prager Bros. Artisan Bread. With his brother, Louie, the Carlsbad-based bakers are known for their old-school techniques to create organic, naturally rising whole grain breads and pastries. He tells us their story about starting in their parents’ backyard and now operating out of Carlsbad Gateway Center, a makers park with more than 80 small businesses.

He chimes in for our debate about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches: To toast or not toast the bread first?

And we end with recommendations for Two People/$50, including Del Sur Mexican Cantina, Campfire, and Tribute Pizza.
