About This Show
Adriano & Sonja Rota are on a mission that demands they be anthropologists of a sort, as well as gourmet chefs. Their mission is to research, reproduce, and promote healthy authentic ancient Roman food. They own and operate Castra Rota, in the little town of Brunson, SC, and it’s from there that they make and sell Roman food along with contemporary European gourmet food. They join Dr. Edgar to talk about their passion for re-discovering the Roman way of eating.
We will also be talking food with our other guest, Dan Huntley. Dan is a columnist for the Charlotte Observer and he loves barbeque. In fact, he is a Kansas City Barbeque Society judge and he bottles and markets his own sauce! Not long ago he partnered with Lisa Grace Lednicer from The Oregonian newspaper and Charlotte Observer photographer Layne Bailey to create the book Extreme Barbeque: Smokin' Rigs and Real Good Recipes. Dan joins another certified barbeque judge, Walter Edgar, to talk about the book and all things Barbeque. (This part of the program has aired previously.)
