    Food Nation Food Talk Radio EP #33 Fast Food Talk


    Fast food are two bad words now a days. There are the ones that shame people and then others openly eat it and others hide in shame and are closet eaters. It is what it is and always seem to be at the fore front of top food news talk on the radio and on tv. Tech Rob and Chef Shawn are ok with the fast food business and enjoy some of their menu items. Love it or hate it you usually have something to say about it either way. Pull up a seat to the Chef's table and let's get this talk started. Maybe a Chef's fast food recipe or two, food articles and what ever we decide to bring up to the drive thru. Super size us and join in, we might even let you steal a few golden hot, salty, delicious, golden, fry sticks from the fast food gods off of our trays. See you all soon. We celebrate food with you! Oh by the way bring extra napkins.
