Food Talk: Sussman Brothers And Annabel Ascher

Missed part of the show? Here’s a recap of Food Talk with Kim Bailey from Saturday, April 25, 2015.

Chef brothers Max and Eli Sussman are back with their fourth cookbook, Classic Recipes for Modern People (Olive Press; March 31, 2015; $25), featuring over 75 recipes that reimagine classic dishes from their childhood and yours, with a little humor baked in along the way.

True classics like “Ol’ Blue Eyes, a 1963 Corvette, a tailored suit, a dry-aged rib eye, Led Zeppelin, Tom Cruise in Risky Business” work perfectly the way they are. But Max and Eli Sussman believe that recipes should be ever expanding and evolving, a philosophy they practice in both their professional and home kitchens. That a dish “no matter how classic and iconic—has the ability to morph into something new and fantastic.”

Annabel Ascher is known as the Frugal Goddess. She specializes in simple and practical advice on saving money in an unsure world. Annabel started The Frugal Goddess blog in 2010 at the height of the great recession, to help regular folks realize that a good life is still possible even in tough circumstances.

Food Talk with Kim Bailey airs every Saturday from 2-3 p.m. ET on AM 820 News in Tampa.
