Re-broadcast, originally aired 2/10/12. I know that NYC is still celebrating the Superbowl hardcore, and I hope you fully enjoyed the amazing, nail-biting win... BUT. Let's be serious. The Superbowl of Style is just around the corner - NY Fashion Week! So we're gonna get down to business and talk fashion today. And speaking of business - I have the honor of highlighting an incredible organization and business venture on today's show. Awamaki is a non-profit based in Peru, that works with local women to preserve indigenous weaving techniques, and to further their skills as craftspeople. Towards that end, Awamaki recently launched a design residency program, spearheaded by Annie Millican. The Awamaki Lab residency offers young designers an opportunity to create a collection of clothing, built around these beautiful traditional Peruvian textiles. Awamaki Lab just celebrated the launch of its second collection, F/W 2012, designed by collaborators and fellow Parsons grads Andria Crescioni and Courtney Cedarholm. The pieces are timeless yet modern, with references to menswear that retain a thoroughly feminine sensibility. On today's show, Andria and Courtney talk about their experiences in Peru, learning about local fibers and natural dyes, and how anthropologists and explorers from the turn of the century led to these gorgeous garments. Plus, tons of great new music today from Dr. Dog, Sharon Van Etten, of Montreal, Young Magic and more! So prep yourself for Fashion Week with your first collection of F/W 2012... *Note: In the broadcast, I mention that the first Awamaki Lab Collection was designed as a collaboration between Annie Millican and Nieli Vallin. This is incorrect; Annie facilitated and created the residency, but Nieli was the sole designer. You can see images of Nieli's Awamaki Lab designs here, in a slideshow published by Ecouterre. 00:00 DJ Marie (Underneath: Soaring - Shigeto) 03:05 Interview with Andria Crescioni and Courtney Cedarholm of Awamaki Lab 09:44 DJ Marie 10:19 Lonesome - Dr. Dog 13:30 Skin and Bone - Heartless Bastards 17:24 Leonard - Sharon Van Etten 21:05 DJ Marie 22:13 Interview with Andria Crescioni and Courtney Cedarholm 28:14 DJ Marie 29:22 Light Year Girl - The Phantom Family Halo 33:14 We Will Commit Wolf Murder - of Montreal 38:44 The Dancer - Young Magic 42:25 DJ Marie 43:34 Interview with Andria Crescioni and Courtney Cedarholm 50:21 DJ Marie 52:58 Always On The Run - Yuksek 56:42 Finish Selections from Awamaki Lab Collection 2, F/W 2012 (Designs by Andria Crescioni and Courtney Cedarholm, Photos by Kate Reeder) Dr. Dog (Photo by Jason Nocito) Sharon Van Etten (Photo by Kristianna Smith) of Montreal (Photo by Patrick Heagney, courtesy of Pitchfork)

My guest this week is Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers. Jan broke out on the photography scene in 2010 when he published a book called Spomenik. The book documents the giant geometric sculptures that were built across the countryside of the former Yugoslavia in the 60s and 70 as monuments to various sites and battles from World War Two. Jan traveled to these isolated sites to photograph these alien-looking sculptures. Before Jan's project these monuments were largely unknown except to the people in the small towns where they're located.

When in Rome you should eat at any number of places that we’re not delving into in this episode. But, when in San Francisco and you want to induce a meat coma, I urge you to head straight to Chef Chris Cosentino’s new spot Cockscomb in the up and coming SOMA district. If you’ve ever watch just about any Food Network or Cooking Channel show that involves running around a kitchen or a city in order to eat or buy supplies, he’s probably on it. Locally he’s known as the master of offal. Seriously, if you google offal and San Francisco, he comes up. I took a date to cockscomb and I don’t necessarily care about impressing a date with how much I can spend on a meal, rather I let good food take care of that. But, what I do like to do is order the funniest thing on a menu just because. So, for this date I had been reading up an people seemed to be talking about this shared pin-bone steak. It’s $110. I’ve spent more than that on a few precious ounces of genuine Kobe beef so I figured this would be a decent but not crazy sized piece of steak. I couldn’t have been more wrong. It’s was 4 lbs. of steak staring at us. I feel like we should have been warned that usually a group of 4 orders it. But, ces’t la vie it was delicious! Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Oh, and it’s served with a bone-marrow reduction. Um, I could main-line bone marrow. So, don’t miss Cockscomb. It’s delightful. But, you should try the roasted half-pigs head and let me know how it is.

If you haven’t heard by now, the California Foie Gras ban has been lifted. Californians are once again free to gorge themselves on fatted duck livers until their own livers become fatty and ready for consumption. It’s a controversial topic, with a lot of different points of view. Listen as Hanabi discusses the issues of our day. Also, Hanabi reviews Cedars in Seattle, a strange name for a Mediterranean restaurant that seems to serve Indian food. Insane Dane has waffles on the brain as well as a new Dish + Drink. Lastly, don’t name your kids Nutella in France. Seriously, just don’t.
This week Hanabi reviews brunch at Central Kitchen in San Francisco. Basically, it’s delicious! Such a great space too. There’s also a cool new gadget on the market, it’s one of Hanabi’s favorite things, an immersion circulator by Anova for Sous Vide cooking! Yay!!!! Also you gotta check out this Dish & Drink: https://www.btrtoday.com/post/?dj=dishdrink&post=46267&blog=72
Well 2014 was interesting. Hopefully 2015 is even more awesome. We visited some newer spots and discovered gold! Hapa Ramen is a project that I’ve been following on it’s journey from street cart vendor, to weekly pop-up restaurant to its final brick and mortar existence. It’s been interesting watching them grow up. The food is delicious. They also like to experiment with Ramen, so if you want to try cheeseburger ramen, they’re what’s up. We also take a trip to a small Pacific Northwest micro brewery called Maritime Pacific and Hanabi has the report. Insane Dane is still fighting off the winter blues, but it’s much easier with his sausage and mushroom pasta recipe on the Dish + Drink blog.
