I’m a lucky gal with more food-loving friends than you can shake a stick at. This week’s guest hosts were the dynamic dining duo, Dan ‘n Claire. These guys are relatively new to the Leena Eats family, but we love them just the same. I always like to say, the more you like bacon, the better friends we’ll be. I couldn’t like these guys more if they WERE bacon. And it is probably better that they aren’t, because then I would eat them and have no one left to host a podcast with me. As fellow gastronomers, Dan ‘n Claire are people who have a natural interest in food, and actually enjoy reading and learning about all it’s aspects, historical, social, and otherwise. Food nerds of the world, unite! So here it is, a little more info on this week’s guest hosts, Dan ‘n Claire.
Full Name: Daniel Eugene Gould Hometown: Chicago, IL Sign: Cancer Profession: Non-Profit Glutton for Punishment My last meal on earth would be: Chopped Liver, Corned Beef and Bacon sandwich on Rye Bread Feed me this food and I’ll kick you: Mayonnaise. Personal Eating Motto: “Don’t… tempt me! Understand, I would eat this from a desire to do good, but through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.” Dan wants you to know: that the average cruising airspeed velocity of an unladen European Swallow is roughly 11 meters per second, or 24 miles an hour.
Full Name: Mary Claire Fitzpatrick – yes, it’s a name basically straight out of an Irish convent Hometown: Milwaukee, Wisconsin Sign: “Danger! Curves ahead!” Profession: Project Assistant at DePaul University / Eternal Graduate Student My last meal on earth would be: My mom’s Christmas Eve spinach lasagne Feed me this food and I’ll kick you: I’m not much of a kicker per se, but I might vomit all over your nice, new Persian knock-off rug if you scramble up some sheep’s brains and eggs. Blarg. Personal Eating Motto: (Disclaimer, this isn’t original. It comes from both my grandmas): Never refuse hospitality. It’s rude. If a host offers you something to eat or drink, say yes, and eat it with a smile. Claire wants you to know: We are wanted in 4 states. For crimes against bad cuisine. You should have seen the chaos we started in a White Castle last month…. Thanks for joining me, Dan ‘n Claire, and I look forward to future meals and podcasts together. Next time, it’s your turn to bring the bacon. ~LTG!
