John Oates, Rib Eye Steak & Ice Cream
John Oates is the mustachioed half of Hall & Oates, the best selling musical duo in history. Maneater! I Can’t Go For That! Rich Girl! These dudes were hit making machines.
So host Rachel Belle started thinking about famous food duos: Ketchup & Mustard. Peanut Butter & Jelly. But the best selling culinary duo of all time has got to be Salt & Pepper. When did they get together? And why do we automatically sprinkle them both on our food without questioning their coupling? Learn the history of salt & pepper from Ken Albala, professor of food history at the University of Pacific.
And like so many other Your Last Meal guests before him, ice cream is a part of John’s last meal; specifically Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. Rumor has it, owner Jeni Britton Bauer created the salted caramel ice cream flavor that pops up on boutique ice cream shop menus across the country. She tells Rachel how music influences every flavor they dream up.
Hall & Oates are performing this Saturday, September 14th, 2019 at the Washington State Fair, get tickets!
