Extras are interviews and other tidbits of information not broadcast over the airwaves on Field & Feast the radio show; they live solely online.

It’s not because they aren’t worthy of broadcast, it’s just that there’s only so much “on air real estate” where these can reside; not so online (at least not yet).

One of the  differences of Extras interviews from broadcast interviews is they will often be longer, and for the most part, unedited and unscripted, save for introductions and closes.

It is the raw interview as it happened, with many of the ums and ahs, long pauses and occasional silliness left intact. These are most often telephone interviews with authors, chefs and others.

So stop by often to hear what the broadcast audience is missing.

Chiffonade is a cooking technique whereby you stack leafy greens or herbs and cut them into thin ribbons. In French, the word means "rags" because that's what the shreds look like when you're done.

Crashing the Stock
