FoodCrush Podcast: A crazy culinary chat with Nick Chipman of Dude Foods

In August 2010, Nick Chipman created an over-the-top midnight snack, which he dubbed The Veatloaf Sandwich. It featured a variety of leftovers from his fridge: a slice of veal, a chunk of homemade meatloaf, a fried egg, cheddar cheese and mayonnaise sandwiched between two slices of toasted wheat bread. Little did he know that this inaugural (and comparatively tame) sandwich would lead to hundreds more in-your-face culinary creations, a good number of which would become viral sensations.

On this week's podcast, we talk with Chipman about the creation of Dude Foods, a blog which assisted in blazing the trail for hundreds of outrageous food blogs across the nation. During our wild no-holds-barred chat, we discuss the evolution of Dude Foods and the Dude Foods podcast, Chipman's journey to full-time food blogging and the wild adventures he's had along the way.
