In the tenth episode of The Food Coma Podcast we entertain local legend Shahin Khojastehzad to find out what really makes a man want to spend an entire day consuming alcoholic milk beverages. Shahin is part-owner of one of the world’s foremost beer bars – Novare Res, in Portland, ME – so naturally, the conversation drifts that way occasionally as well. Just to be sure, we confirm that the only way to ever know that beer is cold enough to drink is to make sure those mountains on the can are sapphire blue. Anyone looking for any last-minute gift ideas will be delighted by the “12 Wines of Christmas.”
Shahin, like myself, is a discerning water drinker, and we talk about his experience with renowned Water Sommelier Martin Riese. Also, Prime Rib, the OJ Simpson game of Pogs and my father’s reaction to my eating prowess a The Sizzler. Lastly, for the Maine OG’s, we “Take it to the Showroom” to get this car FIXED for good.

In the ninth episode of The Food Coma Podcast, I interview Down East Magazine’s Editor in Chief, Brian Kevin. Discussion ranges from sobriety to the many reasons to be sober, such as wine coolers, pumpkin beer, and PBR Coffee Beverages. We also tackle the issues that are shaping our crazy world like fake meat, health insurance in restaurants, and the assholes who want to ban foie gras.
Also I compare “Designing a menu that is meant to pair with cannabis” to, “Designing a menu that is meant to pair with salt.” It’s all right here. Enjoy.
In the eighth episode of The Food Coma Podcast my guest is Andy Gerry, co-owner and co-chef of the Highroller Lobster Co. in Portland, Maine. Together we go on a journey of discovery, the most significant of which is our apparent age difference and, by default, the actual shows we’ve watched religiously. Luckily, we quickly find common ground and can both agree on the fact that Hot Ones is awesome and that Gordon Ramsay couldn’t possibly throw up as much as he claims he does on Kitchen Nightmares. Also mentioned is Guy Fieri, The Shed at Dulwich, and the legendary Slap Chop.
In the seventh episode of The Food Coma Podcast, I welcome Portsmouth-Based Author Michael Boulerice, AKA Kung Fu Mike, to discuss what begins as controversial food opinions and soon devolves into everything from Twizzlers to Bull Ice 40’s. I am given an education on ice cream cakes, while I enlighten Mike about that time with the Turbo Ice Latte.
I don’t really know what to tell you, outside of the fact that its coconut WATER, not coconut MILK, that is good for a hangover. Please enjoy.
