Foodie and the Beast – March 27, 2022

Hosted by David and Nycci Nellis.

On today’s show:
• Chef Vic Albisu’s Taco Bamba serves food that is like a narcotic. And Taco Bamba’s beverage director,

• The D.C. Central Kitchen is a national treasure. The organization’s CEO, Mike Curtin, an old and good friend of the show,
joins us later with news about the Central Kitchen’s awesome, must-attend, star-studded, annual fundraiser, the Capital Food Fight, coming to The Anthem on the Wharf Thursday, April 7;
