Episode 5
Introduction

We’re keeping it real this month on Prince Street with a show about anxiety. We understand—it’s summer, time for ice cream and the beach. But we also know that nerves are not seasonal, especially when it comes to... food. On this episode, Phil Rosenthal, creator of the hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond and host of the award-winning I’ll Have What Phil’s Having, reveals one of the secrets of his success, and why he thinks more people should be anxious. Find out why author and food editor Kat Kinsman might disagree, especially when it comes to the dangerous kind of anxiety that increasingly afflicts people in the restaurant industry. Chef Erik Ramirez teaches Eden Grinshpan how to make Peruvian ceviche while swapping tips on how to reduce anxiety. Sierra Tishgart steals a moment with chef Jessica Koslow of LA's Sqirl, who is launching two new projects while publishing her first cookbook at the same time. And Jay McInerney reads from his twelfth book, out this month, his latest novel, Bright Precious Days.

Segment 1
Phil Rosenthal

Phil Rosenthal describes the food of his childhood as a punishment, so it's no wonder he's been pursuing delicious things every since. His hit comedy, Everybody Loves Raymond used home cooking as a punch line, but in Phil's new documentary series, I'll Have What Phil's Having, food is the basis for a very personal, wide-eyed and hilarious quest. We meet up with Phil the morning after he won a James Beard Award for his show. Over room service coffee with Prince Street's Howie Kahn, Phil talks about food culture, what he considers to be the ultimate success (it involves pizza), and how funny ultimately comes from happy.

Kat Kinsman: Hi! Anxiety

Prince Street's Pavia Rosati and Kat Kinsman, food editor of the new breakfast-themed website, Extra Crispy, and author of the upcoming book, Hi, Anxiety: Life With A Bad Case of Nerves, engage in an intimate conversation about mental health—Kat's, and in the food industry. Through telling her story, Kat has become an activist, launching Chefs With Issues, an online initiative aimed at de-stigmatizing mental heath concerns in professional kitchens. "Everything has to be perfect," says Kat, "or you lose your job." Hear about living with that kind of perpetual pressure and Kat's strategies for managing the anxiety she wakes up with nearly every day.

Eden Eats NYC: Llama Inn

This month on Eden Eats NYC, the cuisine is Peruvian and the chef is Erik Ramirez of one of Williamsburg's breakout restaurants, Llama Inn. Ramirez began his career in fine dining, working for restaurants like Eleven Madison Park, but the allure of his parents' native Peruvian cooking led him to a different path. Eden learns about that transition, the incredible biodiversity of Peruvian ingredients, and one of the most satisfying raw fish preparations ever to come out of Brooklyn.

Everything Jessica Koslow Wants to Eat… and Do.

This fall Jessica Koslow, chef owner of Los Angeles's perpetually packed Sqirl restaurant, will publish her first cookbook, Everything I Want To Eat. She's also opening two new establishments: Sqirl Away in Silver Lake, and a yet-to-be-named spot in the new Sawtelle district, where she'll serve California cuisine inspired by places like Zahav, Shaya and Russ & Daughters. Add a new farming project in Malibu of drought-resistant crops, and Koslow's plate is full. Has she taken on just enough - or too much? Prince Street's Sierra Tishgart checks in with her friend to find out.

Bright, Precious Days: Jay McInerney's new novel

From working at a liquor store in Syracuse, drinking Yugoslavian chardonnay, while writing his first breakout novel, Bright Lights, Big City (1984), to drinking grand cru burgundy while putting the finishing touches on novel number 9, Bright, Precious Days, out this month, Jay McInerney has chronicled New York life with humor and insight for almost 30 years. (He's also the author of three critically acclaimed books about wine.) Jay sits down with editor Lucas Wittmann to continue the thread of their Paris Review interview, and also reads an exclusive excerpt from his novel, the third about the life of one of his wine-loving alter-egos, Russell Calloway.

Phil Rosenthal's Madeleine Moment

Phil takes us back to his grandmother's tiny, New York City kitchen to reflect on what goes wrong and what goes right with matzah balls, and how, in the right hands, like those of his beloved Oma, a tough ingredient can ultimately convey a great deal of love.
