Episodes » Episode 26: Shrimp and Poblano Chowder.

Happy April 2nd! Did you see our April Fools joke yesterday? Did we get you? Don't be ashamed, you can admit it! We got you! Bwahahha!!!

Today's video is this week's real episode, and one we are very proud of indeed. The co-star of this episode is restaurant called Blue Mesa, based in my hometown, Dallas, Tx. Blue Mesa is a fabulous Southwestern restaurant. Not only is the food spicy and tasty, but the owners are great as well (full disclosure: they are close family friends. Like take-trips-to-South-Padre, see-movies-and-eat-Chinese-food-every-Christmas, they-catered-my-bat-mitzvah close family friends). Blue Mesa graciously allowed us to choose an item from their menu to recreate for you this week, and I'm quite sure you'll like it! Read more?
