Yours truly was honored to be a guest this past Saturday on “Dining Around with Joel” on KKSF 910AM.

It’s always a laugh-a-palooza with host extraordinaire Joel Riddell, who makes it all too easy to chit-chat, especially when the topic is food.

We talk about my debut cookbook, “San Francisco Chef’s Table” (Lyons Press), how it came about, the challenges involved in getting it done, how the restaurants featured were chosen, and what it was like to corral so many chefs into one project.

Secret Ingredient Brownies & A Food Gal Podcast

Thursday, 27. September 2012 5:25

Fudgy brownies with a sudsy ingredient.

Monday night, as the featured speaker at the Sunnyvale Public Library, I thought I’d have some fun with the audience members.

After all, if you’re going to talk about food writing, people are bound to get hungry, right?

So, I baked home-made fudge brownies for everyone, using a new recipe I recently came across. As folks nibbled away, I asked if anyone could guess the secret ingredient in these brownies.

Don’t even think it was some kind of controlled substance, though one guy did venture that guess. Other folks struck out with guesses of avocado, tofu, prunes, vinegar, black beans, red bean paste and even soy sauce.

In the end, after giving folks a hint that it was a “liquid” ingredient, one woman finally guessed the correct answer to win one of my very snazzy Food Gal aprons.

Of course, you guys reading this post have it easy. The photo above is a complete giveaway. The secret ingredient in these brownies? Guinness Stout.

“Guinness Brownies” is a recipe from the new cookbook, “Tate’s Bake Shop: Baking for Friends” (self-published), of which I recently received a review copy.  The cookbook, which features more than 120 recipes, is by Kathleen King, the owner of Tate’s Bake Shop in Southhampton, NY.
