Frotcast Bonus: Teaching Nic Cage To Cook, With Gabriel Rucker, Food Consultant for ‘Pig’



Hey, Frotcast fans. Here’s an interview I did with Gabe Rucker. He is the chef/owner of Le Pigeon, in Portland, and recently he worked as the food consultant on the movie Pig, with Nicolas Cage. Nic Cage plays an ex-chef who is a hermit that lives in the forest with his pet pig foraging for mushrooms. Anyway, Gabe got to be the guy who taught Nicolas Cage to cook and created a dish for him to make in the movie. We talk about creating dishes for movies, why chefs seem to hate restaurant movies, how Gabe taught Nic Cage to smell a mushroom, and much, much more. Please to enjoy.
