Chef Steve McHugh grew up on a Wisconsin farm with six brothers. He went on to become a rising star chef in New Orleans, only to get cancer at a very young age. Then he beat it. Since moving from New Orleans to San Antonio, McHugh has really honed the flavors of the southwest at his James Beard Award-nominated restaurant Cured. He chats with us about mesquite beans, his incredible mom, San Antonio's dining scene and what it was like to witness his mentor, John Besh's, downfall. Comedian Nonye Brown-West joins us again in Post Bites to tell us a story about meatballs.
