For a guy who didn’t go to culinary school or set out originally to cook professionally, Royce Burke sure has built quite the career as a chef and restaurateur. He’s the culinary genius behind Los Angeles’ inventive late-night concept, Secret Lasagna, and Yarrow Cafe, which is reimagining what vegetarian cooking can be. Royce gives us a rundown of his circuitous path to professional kitchen life, and lets us in on what he’s got coming up next. In 2012, New Jersey’s own Static Jacks joined us in-studio for a chat and performance. The rock quartet regaled us with stories about their favorite diner tuna melts and busking in NYC. They also gave us a spirited acoustic set, playing songs from their debut album, If You’re Young.
