Cooking My Thai Green Coconut Curry On Slacker Radio
I am cooking with ABC Radio’s Aaron Katersky today on their new personalized lifestyle channel distributed on Slacker Radio. ABC and Slacker have launched the joint effort today with two channels, “Men’s Life”, and “Women’s Life “. I was invited to create a “cooking at home segment” with Aaron Katersky for the launch. He is a real foodie and I enjoyed making my Green Thai Coconut Curry recipe with he and the ABC radio crew at Aaron’s home in NYC.
We shot a “behind the scenes” video of my segment in his home too. Aaron welcomed me in, and then he, and the entire radio crew, including the producer, went right to work as a team helping prep the ingredients for the recipe.
Please enjoy part one our behind the scenes video. I will share part 2 tomorrow, Look for it on my YouTube Channel. You may also catch the radio version on Slacker Radio, search for to the Women’s Life Channel. Next, I have been invited to contribute another segment to the new channels and I am looking forward to it.
