Jill on MPR – Fair Foodies Friday Roundtable with Kerri Miller at the State Fair

My wife Jill got in some awesome comments at the Minnesota State Fair when she was picked to respond about the effect of love in cooking on the outcomes thereof.  Jill is a trained chef who studied at the Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago.  She was a pastry chef for Jean-Claude Poilevey at Le Bouchon on Damen Avenue.  Then she started her own place called Kaleidoscope at the intersection of Damen, North and Milwaukee in the space she bought from the Bongo Room right at the Damen blue line el stop across the street from the Double Door (where she saw the stones in a private little concert one day).  The food and atmosphere were awesome as anyone who ate there would attest.  Babies intruded and she eventually closed the restaurant as the crazy landlady wanted a small fortune to keep it open.  Anyway here is an mp3 of her well-received comments (Sameh Wadi of Saffron Restaurant & Lounge and World Street Kitchen in Minneapolis humorously offers her a job on the spot) {click to the left of the leftmost 00:00 if the Play/Pause image fails to show up, you can see it changes cursor if you hover over that area) (original Minnesota Public Radio page with the whole Foodies Friday podcast is at this link – go there is this whole page blows up in your face or something – Her part starts at about 6:40 in the podcast or at 45:15 minutes remaining if you use their backward counting player):
