Vidalia onion dip in a cast iron skillet
Grilled pork chop with praline caramelized onions
Filipino inspired Adobo chicken thighs

What a fun show, we didn't have to do any cooking since Chef/owner Archna Malhotra Becker was set up to cook four dishes in the two hour show, out in the restaurant on portable burners.  So we had a chance to ask a bunch of questions about India and Indian cooking that I/we had always wanted to ask. Chef Archna is from the Punjab region of India, but is familiar with South Indian cuisine as well, she dissolved some myths, taught us all how to make the 4 dishes, tended her restaurant, hugged her children and father and was a glib radio personality for the full 2-3 hours it took us to do our show.  Then we ate the food she had cooked and more. It was a good way to start a weekend for us.

We had a chance to meet Chef Archna's father and mother, her dad was in the catering kitchen prepping food for catering, but did stop in and did a few minutes on-air.  we also met her brother. he owns the coffee shop next door.  The family also has started a store in that same strip mall as Community Q, that sells the ingredients that are used in their restaurant and catering business, and will ship pre-made Indian feasts to anywhere in the country.  I have my eye on one of the special heavy wok-like pans that they use at the restaurant, like I need another pan.   ;)

We were pleased to have a couple of folks from here on our board drop by and watch the show a bit, and have lunch at the restaurant.  The Scientist and Foodgeek sat through at least 5 segments before moving to a table and ordering lunch.  I hope they got to sample some of the food that we cooked on the show, because all of it was very tasty while fairly fiery.

btw.. they do have Bells Two Hearted Ale

As Mike said, FG and I dropped by to watch the demo at Bhojanic for a while, and the sights and smells prompted us to stay for lunch, which may have been the whole point. We managed to finagle tastings of the dishes Chef Archna prepared for the show: curry dishes using eggplant, chicken and potato/cauliflower. Host made a big show of his distaste for cauliflower, but both of us thought it was the best of the three, beautifully spicy and just hot enough to get your attention. We also sampled a carrot puree with cardemom that was very tasty, and a cucumber yogurt sauce that we much appreciated to help cool the burn.

For lunch we ordered samosas, bhel puri and roti cani with chicken tikka masala in appetizer portions, and it was plenty of food for the two of us to share. We needed an extra order of naan (just one piece per order, but a rather large one) to sop up all the sauces. Too early in the day for drinking beer, but I'm making a mental note of places that have Two Hearted.

What a fun show we had today, cooking in the cool weather and the wind.  We did four really good dished today, though I would have personally made two of them very differently, they were way good.

We did a S'more Pie in a cast iron Dutch oven on the Big Green Egg, though not perfect it turned out pretty dern good (I hear)?
our second dish was Chicken Creole in a Dutch Oven on the Big Green Egg.  wonderful dish, good use of honey to blend this dish and bring out the flavors.  I wish I was having it for dinner.
our third was Spicy stir fry with green beans, a quick pork dish done on a too-small-of-a-wok in my opinion, but good.
and our fourth dish was a delicious fettuccine with Bacon-Clam Sauce, made from scratch by Chef Fred with clams, clam bellies, and good al-dente fettuccine. 

The show went fast, we had guests, we had lively conversation and we possibly sold some Big Green Eggs in the process?

We will be back at Big Green Egg headquarters next Saturday to do a show..
