Got two turntables and a microphone! That’s right, Hashcapades hit the media circuit and landed on Simple Kitchen with Missy Maki on Portlands’ KPAM 860. Missy and I had been following each other on twitter for over a year – Happy Anniversary, Missy! So, when I announced the release of my cookbook, Hashcapades: The Art of the Perfect Hash Adventure, she wanted to chat on her radio show…live. Booyah!
When I arrived at the studio, bright and early on a gorgeous, crisp, autumn morning, Missy and I greeted each other like old friends as we chatted about the general outline of the show’s format. I was on first, then Gadget Girl, then Mike Zupan of Zupan’s Markets and, if I were so inclined, I could hang out for a round of foodie trivia. Her proposal sounded like the perfect first radio experience for Hashcapades, but it wouldn’t be complete without my super secret weapon – a Chicken Enchilada Hash that I whipped up for the show.
Thanks to our pre-show snack, Missy and I were ready to get into a hash state of mind. She gave me a wonderful introduction and I launched into how Hashcapades became a cookbook, answered her questions, threw in a few accents and had the best time ever! As the show progressed, listeners would send tweets. Apparently, I was a bit energetic as @NubianOR (Hi, Lidia) noted in her tweet below:

Watching Missy on the mike was like watching a conductor lead a symphony with skill and aplomb. She’s a fabulous listener and dynamic entertainer with a great sense of humor! Missy made me feel instantly at ease and a part of the show. In fact, I did stay the entire 2 hours and interjected here and there like a sidekick, tailor-made for her foodie show. Click the AM860 logo below and listen to the whole show on September 30th. If you’re short on time, skip to 3:45 or so where Missy welcomes me to her show.
Thanks, Missy, for a fabulous time on your show. I look forward to further foodie adventures and hereby dedicate my Chicken Enchilada Hash to you!
