Kyle MacLachlan: Dinner at Peter Luger Steakhouse
In the nearly three years we’ve been producing Your Last Meal, one thing has become abundantly clear: there are a LOT of vegan celebrities. But Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks, Sex & the City, Portlandia, Dune) is a meat man. Burgers? He loves ’em! Steak? He’ll have one for his last meal, thank you very much. And his favorite is from Williamsburg, Brooklyn institution, Peter Luger Steakhouse, a family run joint that’s been serving steaks and schlag in the same exact location for 132 years. What’s schlag? We will school you! Why haven’t they ever hired a single female server? Fourth generation owner David Berson has answers.
Kyle hates food waste as much as he loves getting creative with leftovers, so Rachel welcomes Jill Lightner, author of Scraps, Peels, and Stems: Recipes and Tips for Rethinking Food Waste at Home to the show. Jill can make delicious magic with potato peels, cauliflower leaves and the goopy liquid we pour out of a can of beans. Less compost, more cooking!
Kyle’s Walla Walla winery recently released a new fleet of wines. Check out Pursued By Bear wine! Make sure and follow Your Last Meal on Instagram! And if you haven’t already, listen to our new (and first!) bonus episode about why there are so many Thai restaurants in America.
