Exciting news here at the Bistro: we’re going to be featured on an upcoming episode of “The List,” Scripps-Howard’s weeknightly TV news magazine that covers the biggest news trends by compiling lists of what people are talking about the most. Right now, a hot topic is “Thanksgivikkah” (some are spelling it “Thanksgivukkah”—take your pick!): the once-in-a-blue-moon confluence of Thanksgiving and the start of Hanukkah. Inspired by the chance to combine two holidays in one, people are doing everything from creating special “menurkeys” (menorahs shaped like turkeys) to sending special cards to planning menus combining the best traditions from both holidays…including suggestions from Ruth’s Thanksgivvikah menu. As a result, the folks at “The List” are stopping by to visit her in person and sample her suggestions.
No word on an air date yet, but you can see “The List” at 7 p.m. Monday through Friday on WEWS-TV Channel 5. “The List” also airs on WMAR-TV Channel 2 in Baltimore, WCPO-TV Channel 9 in Cincinnati, WPTV-TV Channel 5 in South Florida, WFTS-TV in Tampa (all at 7 p.m.), KNXV-TV Channel 15 in Phoenix (4:30 p.m.), and KJRH-TV Channel 2 in Tulsa, Oklahoma (6:30 p.m.), so if you have friends in those cities, let them know! We’ll tell you when we know which night Ruth’s feature will appear.
If you saw Ruth cooking up her Mongolian BBQ recipe on Fox 8 News Recipe Box last Tuesday, you know how easy it is to make and how delicious it looks. But if you missed it, check out the video here and get the recipe.
Is a summery tropical seafood dish more your thing? Ruth cooked up Mango Shrimp & Coconut Rice on the show in May—take a look! It’s on the Bistro menu, but the recipe is also on the Fox 8 website.
Got a hankering to try some grilling yourself? Yeah, we knew you might not be able to wait. That’s why Ruth’s appearing on Fox 8 News this Tuesday morning, June 25, showing you how to make Mongolian Grilled Beef. Don’t miss her!
Hot, steaming chicken soup…this time of year, with freezing cold air and a flu bug going around to boot, does anything sound better? Watch Ruth whip up a batch of the ultimate winter comfort food tomorrow morning at 8:30 on the Fox 8 Morning Show. Then stop by the Bistro and get a bowlful yourself…or whatever else strikes your fancy. The weather’s cold, but in the Bistro it’s always warm!
