"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
It's no secret that Fred Winston loves food. He is also known to be quite fond of Mexican cuisine as well! This was evident on-the-air as oftentimes his bodily functions would get the best of him. It led one radio critic to muse that Fred was "...a proud graduate of the burp-and-fart school of broadcasting!" And while he loves to eat, he also loves to cook. In 1983, Fred released his own line of chili, available in the frozen food section of several large grocery chains in Chicago. He also sent interested listeners a copy of his fiery recipe. Due to numerous requests, here is Fred's Chili recipe. A reminder... if you start to sound like Fred after eating it, consider yourself forewarned!
