Welcome to the Radio Kitchen!
I'm Michael Reining and I've spent
about 18 years in kitchens around the
San Francisco area. Most recently as
the Executive Sous Chef at Postrio
Café and Bar in San Francisco. I'm a
graduate of the California Culinary
Academy, I have cooked in
restaurants and corporate catering
kitchens, pie shops and even
Jack-In-The-Box (my first cooking gig
when I was 18). I've also done some
personal catering and some cooking
instruction. After 17 years as a
veteran of broadcast radio (read-Disc
Jockey) and now nearly 18 years as a
kitchen pro, I am putting all the
pieces of my life into this project. I
am your host for The Radio Kitchen.
Through the stories on The Radio
Kitchen I want to get you interested,
PASSIONATE, about food and
cooking. I'm gonna tell you a story, a
story that, I hope will make you
hungry. Hungry for more! More food.
More information. More recipes.
More. Join me as I concoct a
mélange ranging from interviews with
food pros and foodies, recipe and
menu ideas, new and fun food
products, plus ways to play with your
food along with wines and spirits.
So here we go!!! Keep watching this
space for updates with new articles,
recipes, podcasts and fun!
