This Week on Lick the Plate -
City of San Diego Interim Mayor and City Council President,
Interim Mayor Todd Gloria was born and raised in Clairemont and the district where he serves as City Councilman is full of some of the city’s best restaurants so Todd is quite the foodie. He was elected to a four-year City Council term in 2008; he was re-elected and chosen as council president in 2012.
Gloria is a third generation San Diegan, all four of his grandparents having moved to San Diego because of their involvement with the military. He has described his ethnic background in an interview as being: "basically half Native American, a quarter Filipino and then a little bit of Dutch and Puerto Rican."
At age 10 he was runner-up in a "mayor for a day" contest. At 14 he volunteered to work for Democratic candidates in the 1992 election. Gloria graduated summa cum laude from the University of San Diego, with majors in history and political science. While a student at USD, Gloria was active in the effort to add "sexual orientation" to the campus nondiscrimination policy.
Lick the Plate Radio on M-F at 7pm 102.1 FM and weekly in the Coast News Lick the Plate, the popular Coast News restaurant and food column written by David Boylan made its radio debut on KPRi, 102.1 San Diego on February 27. The show features conversations with different area chefs or proprietors every week and cover a wide range of topics including lifestyle outside of the kitchen, tastes in music, and where the chefs and proprietors eat and drink when they are not working, along with their background and insights into their current establishment.
The format for this show is new and unique to San Diego,” said KPRi Program Director Haley Jones. She added, “With the growing interest in food, along with the rise of chefs and owners as personalities and celebrities, people want to know more about them, and what influences their kitchens and what shapes their menus.”
Lick the Plate columnist and radio show host David Boylan added, “Lick the Plate has always been about storytelling and radio is a perfect medium for us to get these stories out to a large audience. Chefs and restaurateurs have always had big personalities and are full of good stories. Lick the Plate radio will tell those stories and will be produced in a manner that will be appealing to the KPRi audience and include plenty of music in the mix. We will also be exploring farmers markets and other unique stories like the emerging food swap movement.”
