Foodie Forkcast | Windy with a chance of Old Dominion Dogs


It’s weather, it’s food, it’s your Foodie Fork-cast!

Each week WVEC TV-13’s marvelous meteorologist Tim Pandajis joins us with his outlook ahead and we perfectly pair an eat or a drink for whatever Mother Nature has in store.

The Fork-cast after the Jump


As we wrap up Meteorological winter we look back on what was, yet again, an extremely mild February. We ended up right on the heels of 2017 which was the second warmest on record.

A massive storm system, not seen since the blizzard of early January will develop off the coast. It won’t be a big snow maker but it will bring extremely windy conditions to the region. Wind gusts this weekend could reach 55 miles per hour. The storm will alter the overall pattern, drawing down colder air into early next week.


When I think of the windy conditions that Tim is describing, I automatically think of Chicago, the Windy City.

The trouble is that Chicago is in Illinois, and not in the Virginia. So we take the elements of the classic Chicago Dog (yellow mustard, chopped white onion, sweet pickle relish, dill pickle spear, tomato slices, sport peppers and a dash of celery salt) and make our own version. We present to you, the Old Dominion Dog:

Grill hot dogs and place in a potato or Hawaiian bread bun. Add a drizzle of a premium spicy mustard, chopped white onion, Cabbage and Collards Slaw

on top. On the side, tuck in a few quality bread and butter pickles and fried green tomato slices. Then add a dash or two of hot sauce – we love the made-in-Virginia Speedy’s # 44 Hot Sauce [LINK], and a light sprinkling of Old Bay seasoning.
