Tricia Wheeler is the founder of The Seasoned Farmhouse, a new cooking school in Clintonville. She is also Editor-In-Chief of Edible Columbus, a quarterly food magazine focusing on Central Ohio. She will join All Sides Weekend: Chefs in the City at 11 a.m. on 89.7 NPR News.

Host Marilyn Smith will discuss Wheeler’s new endeavor and what led to it. She will also touch on her time at Edible Columbus, and what that experience has taught her.

The Seasoned Farmhouse is a great place for cooking classes, but they also feature a learning garden and a cookbook library. Their event space is available as well for group cooking and dining events.

For Tricia Wheeler, this school is not simply a business. It is a mission.

“I felt like the timing of really connecting people to where food comes from and what’s happening in our own community was really important work,” Wheeler says. She says that the history and tradition of cooking, not simply the end result, is important.

Later in the hour, food critic for WOSU Rich Terapak and Columbus Underground restaurant reviewer Miriam Bowers Abbot will join the show. They will discuss food in Columbus and how to approach the once in a lifetime opportunity of blending Hanukkah with a Thanksgiving feast.

    The Silent Woman Bar was i believe on East Main, just east of James.
    The signage in neon or lit up from behind maybe, was extremely provocative.
    It showed an image of a female with her, holding her own head or her head somehow detached.
    Depicting the female as presumably silent. And even holding the knife?
    pretty grisly, and disturbing and was evident to anyone driving around there up till the 90’s, it seems.

    Slow hipster service and slow kitchen. Expensive prices. Don’t visit if you want to see food on your table in under 45 minutes. However the food quality, taste and presentation is very good! Ambiance is contemporary cool inside, very different from what you may have the impression of from the exterior of this old Tim Horton’s location. Good bar and drink selection. Overpriced menu. On the west coast you can find this style of filipino restaurant serving same dishes for $7.50. Here they will set you back $12-$18. You can’t even get into appetizers for less than $10 unless you want a bowl of rice. Don’t know if they’ll survive, table turnover is way too slow, even though they’re making large profit margin per dish, it’s just way too slow. If you have an evening to kill, this would be a good hangout. Don’t attempt a weekday lunch or dinner. You’ll see a good hipster millinial crowd here.
