Let's Get Real

Description

Tuesdays at 1:00PM EST Theme song by Benjamin Kaplan On Let’s Get Real Chef Erica Wides walks you down the aisles of the surreal world of food, serving up a heaping dose of reality by separating the food from the foodiness so you can forage, hunt, gather, trap and fish for real food anywhere, even in a foodiness-filled mega market. Incisive, pragmatic, sarcastic, and an unrepentant know-it-all when it comes to anything food, on Let’s Get Real Chef Erica Wides does the job for you of sifting out everything that’s fake in the world of food – from “foodiness” marketing and cooking show shams to “health-halo green-washing” and annoying whole-food righteousness – so you never unknowingly chow down on carpeting again.

Let's Get Real - Episode 87 - If your Valentine gives you a cookie-dough-filled heart-shaped donut, its time to reevaluate your relationship.

It's Valentine's Day, and as you can imagine, that means major foodiness. Don't fall into a trap of fake chocolate and non-cookies! Why are companies selling heart shaped cookie dough donuts? Erica steers you clear of fake food and delves into the history of that thing we call "cookie dough". Things get a little bit weird on a special Valentine's Day themed episode of Let's Get Real, The Cooking Show About Finding, Preparing and Eating Food. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery. "If your sweetie is giving you foodiness for Valentine's day...then I would re-evaluate that relationship!"
