On this week’s guest we talk to the greatest daytime talk show host of all time…

CARNIE WILSON 

Apparently she was also in a band and is now the Executive Pastry Chef of Vitello’s Restaurant in Studio City, CA.  She tells Zach about the role played in her childhood, including a memorable bowl of cereal she had with her dad Brian Wilson, and the glass refrigerator that was in their house growing up. She also tells us what it was like to win (and lose) the cooking show Chopped, and how she really feels about Alex Guarnaschelli and Martha Stewart.

Just like music isn’t just sound, pizza isn’t just flour and tomato sauce and cheese. It’s a phenomenon with deep meaning for us. Pizza is an invention on the same level as the invention of electric guitar. What makes humanity great is that we can go beyond nature and still have it be a part of our nature — our natural ability to make new things is a natural part of what makes us supernatural beings.
Andrew W.K. on pizza, from his Village Voice advice column.

To celebrate National Dessert Day, here’s a shot of the pumpkin cake that Carnie Wilson gave me a slice of on this week’s podcast. And, yes, those are pumpkin spice M&M’s.

I don’t believe that anyone can be truly anonymous now. To me, that’s a fool’s errand. So my role I always thought was not so much as a critic, but as a talent scout. Like an A&R guy. And a lot of the chefs that I have written about, that weren’t well known have subsequently become well known and have become the common property. Justin Smillie in New York, the Torrisi boys, and even some of the big chefs in New York, I was on board early, like David Chang. And so I think that a very important part of my role is to find talent.
