7:02 am
sopranos prequel that will have fans seeing double, today, wednesday, january 23rd, 2019. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with savannah guthrie and hoda kotb, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. hi, everybody, good morning, and thank you for being with us on a wednesday morning, and in a moment we're going to hear for the first time the other side of the story in this confrontation that has just gone viral between that young man right there and a native american elder. so many people are talking about this. >> yeah. and a lot of people -- we've heard from the native american elder a few times. it will be nice to hear the other side of the story in this case. we're going to start with the government shutdown. >> two votes are now in the senate tomorrow that could potentially end it, but that will be too late for federal workers and government contractors who now face a second week of missed paychecks. we do have complete coverage. we're going to start with nbc's tom costello. hey, tom, good morning. >> reporter: hoda, good morning, we're at the federal triangle here in washington, d.c.
7:03 am
thousands of people every day come into the federal triangle. people here are working at the epa, at the irs. if you go through these columns, you go all the way back there to customs and border protection and many other offices, but of course most of these workers are coming without pay or they are furloughed, this at a time when some of the top ceos are saying this is unbecoming of the united states of america. this morning business pressure is building for an end to the shutdown. the former ceo of dow. >> and another says america's dysfunction is hitting the bottom line. >> i'm a tour group, smithsonian is closed. do i really want to go to washington now?
7:04 am
>> reporter: back in washington, on pennsylvania avenue, more food giveaways for federal workers who are now expected to miss a second paycheck. for quashawn latimer fighting cancer, now fearing losing her home. >> worst-case scenario, we'll lose our home. i'll be evicted. i can't negotiate with my chemo. that has to happen. if it's chemo or the rent, chemo wins. >> reporter: coast guard barely getting by without paychecks. they ended with the cam danlt saying the armed forces should not be expected to shoulder the burden. >> i find it unacceptable that coast guard men and women have to rely on food pantries and donations to get through day-to-day life as service members. >> reporter: in massachusetts, amber broadway's husband is still on duty. >> we're not leaving the house if we don't have to because that's gas money. we're not going out to eat, you know. we're really being still and quiet at home. >> reporter: the shutdown is, of course, all about the border
7:05 am
wall. the president insists a wall would help stop illegal immigration and the flow of illegal drugs. >> walls are not immoral. in fact, they are the opposite of immoral because they will save many lives and stop drugs from pouring into our country. >> reporter: but the government's own statistics show most hard drugs like cocaine, heroin, and meth come through legal ports of entry and would not be stopped by a wall. meanwhile, arrests along the border have averaged 400,000 a year for the past decade, well below the peak of 1.6 million arrests in 2000. >> now just back to the economic concerns for just a second, the white house is pushing back, tom. they're saying that all this pain will be kind of short-lived. so what are you hearing? >> reporter: yeah, that's right. the senior white house economic adviser larry kudlow was suggesting that this will be a short-lived painful situation, that there will be a quick snapback and the economy will recover, but there's no plan
7:06 am
right now to reopen the government and for there to be any sort of a snapback quickly. and, oh, by the way, we're not just talking about the 800,000 federal workers going without pay but also the millions of contract workers, they will not get back pay if and when the government reopens. they're really out of luck completely. >> that's an important point. all right, tom, thank you. now to those new proposals to reopen the government, they're expected to be put to a le vote on the hill today -- excuse me, tomorrow, and as that plays out, the president is pushing ahead with plans to deliver his state-of-the-union address next week. nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. as the urgency builds to end the shutdown, president trump does seem determined to give his state of the union address despite house speaker nancy pelosi urging him to delay it. and as the senate is poised to vote on competing bills to end the stalemate, there is still no clear end in sight. this morning the white house says it's moving forward with the state-of-the-union address
7:07 am
next tuesday at the capitol as planned, despite a request by house speaker nancy pelosi to reschedule it, due to what she called security concerns prompted by the shutdown. concerns trump administration officials have said are unfounded. the white house sent a letter to the house sergeant at arms asking for a dry run for the speech and overnight press secretary sarah sanders dug in. >> nancy pelosi invited the president. he accepted. she cited security concerns as a potential reason to delay that. the united states secret service and dhs have addressed those concerns, and we're moving forward until sometoving forward until something changes on that front. >> reporter: now the shutdown in its fifth week, mitch mcconnell scheduling a vote tomorrow on mr. trump's proposal to reopen the government which would restore protections for three years for dreamers in exchange for $5.7 billion for a border wall. >> it's a proposal that the
7:08 am
president will support as i've stated consistently over the past month, that fact will earn it consideration here in the senate. >> reporter: democrats insist that's dead on arrival. >> the president's proposal is one sided, harshly partisan and was made in bad faith. >> reporter: mr. trump's plan is all but certain to fail because senate republicans need 60 votes to pass it requires 7 democrats to break ranks. the senate is also set to vote tomorrow on a second democratic backed po pose sal that would reopen the government for two weeks without funding for the border wall but that's also likely to fail with republican senators largely standing with the president demanding money for his key priority. >> the wall is a way to ensure that traffic is funneled to points of entry that can be monitored but it also is a way to make it harder to cross the border. >> back to the state of the union, if speaker pelosi formally resends the invitation,
7:09 am
what happens next? what are the other options here. >> reporter: the white house seems to be full steam ahead on the original plan for the president to speak at the capitol, officials are also preparing separate passages of the speech just in case it's delivered outside of d.c. the president will meet with leaders later today to discuss his immigration proposal to turn up the heat on democrats. >> thank you. another story getting a lot of other attention. >> good morning to you. that's right. a drone scare at one of this country's busiest airport. newark international airport officials were forced to temporarily suspend flights. it's an issue that's becoming a safety concern here in the u.s. around around the world. morgan has more for us this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. newark airport is one of the biggest transportation hubs for the new york and the new jersey area, but it's also one of the
7:10 am
busiest airports in the country. it was brought to a compete ground stop after two drones were found flying dangerously close to airplanes nearby. so the question this morning is how did it happen and who's responsible? >> flights delayed and arrival times left up in the air. >> we circled and you can see it on the map. >> it was about 45 minutes extra. >> reporter: a ground stop ordered at the busiest airport after two drones were spotted flying nearby. the action halting incoming flights. >> it was pretty close i would say within a quarter mile at most. >> we missed the drone by about 30 feet off our right wing. >> reporter: the drones seen hovering about 3,500 feet above a smaller regional airport just 20 miles away. the disruption causing dozens of planes to circle newark airport including a united flight from jamaica just minutes away from running out of fuel when the pilot asked for a location to land the aircraft. >> we've got about 15, 20
7:11 am
minutes, i've got to go somewhere. i'll take the turnpike, whatever you want to give me. >> reporter: the incident grounding planes in other cities before all flights resumed. the faa generally prohibits jones from flying within five miles from airports because of the danger they pose to other air traffic. >> a larger format drone could do a significant amount of damage to an airplane and if it were close to ground it could result in loss of the airplane. >> reporter: drones also impacting travel overseas. most recently back in december, creating chaos at one of europe's busiest hubs. multiple sitings forcing the airport to shut down for a day and a half at the height of the holiday season. that incident cost the airline nearly $20 million in revenue. fbi and law enforcement officials have be notified and there is currently no suspect.
7:12 am
however, if that person is found they could not only face criminal penalties, but they could also face up to a $15,000 fine. back to you guys. >> all right. thank you. we do have a lot more to get to including a young woman who vanished in boston who vanished over the weekend and found alive. her mysterious disappearance, he is now in custody. >> reporter: good morning, hoda. talk about relief here in boston. 23-year-old is home this morning with her parents. she went missing after a night here at this bar with friends and family on saturday night. she wasn't seen then for three days until police used surveillance video and cell phone pings to track her and her alleged kidnapper down. this morning homecoming. >> we are beyond happy to have her home. it's amazing.
7:13 am
>> reporter: 23-year-old olivia ambrose returning home with her parents. >> we know that many times the outcome isn't this. >> reporter: it comes after a frantic search in boston leading to a dramatic arrest. >> the suspect is now being charged with kidnapping. >> reporter: the alleged victim safe after being treated at a boston hospital. the young woman vanished after leaving this bar late saturday night. her twin sister who was dancing with her that night says no one saw olivia leave. her family growing concerns after olivia missed several appointments on sunday and did not answer her phone. >> not a minute goes by that she isn't talking to somebody. >> reporter: they observed her on surveillance video, first being engaged and physically guided by this man, 38-year-old victor pena.
7:14 am
>> he was guiding her actually clutching her, guiding her along until eventually they went into public transportation. >> reporter: more cameras capturing the two entering and exiting two metro stations. phone records indicating her mobile phonendoed up in the general location of a housing development. >> eventually the investigation led us to 49 wall ford way where boston police department located the victim alive and the suspect. >> reporter: today mr. pena is in custody and facing a kidnapping charge. >> it's obvious she did not go along willingly and we know that we have the right charge. >> reporter: the family telling nbc news in a statement the ambrose family is so grateful for the efforts of the boston police department and the mbta and transit police who have worked firelessly over the last
7:15 am
three days to bring olivia home adding the amly is overjoyed. >> reporter: olivia appears to be in good health. victor pena will be arraigned later today on that kidnapping charge and police say there could be additional charges. >> thank you. los angeles schoolteachers are returning to work this morning after a six-day strike. teachers in the nation's second largest school district reached a tentative contract agreement on tuesday. that deal includes a 6% pay hike, commitment to reduce class sizes over four years and it would add nursing positions too. teachers in denver voted to strike late tuesday. they could walk off the job as early as monday. >> al's been tracking the storm that's going to impact a whole lot of people. >> first we're taking a look at these temperature changes. it's been so cold the eastern half of the u.s. the last 24 hours we've seen an

7:32 am
do you see your own fault in any way? >> as far as standing there, i had every right to do so. i don't -- my position is that i was not disrespectful to mr. phillips. i respect him. i'd like to talk to him. i mean, in hindsight, i wish we could have walked away and avoided the whole thing, but i can't say that i'm sorry for listening to him and standing there. >> this morning, 16-year-old nick sandmann standing by his actions in this moment gone viral. the junior at kentucky's covington catholic high school now the face of this lincoln memorial confrontation with native american elder nathan phillips. >> and what's it been like to be at the center of this storm? >> well, i've been -- it's weird to see your face on television. i've been reading a lot, and you know, i've also been getting a lot of messages from people both support and a lot of hateful

things. >> sandmann and dozens of his class mamates had just finished attending a march for life rally when they -- a radical movement that is growing more militant. >> they started shouting a bunch of homophobic racist derogatory comments at us. >> what kinds of things did you hear them say? >> i heard them call us incest kids, bigots, racists. they called us [ bleep ]. >> a bunch of incest babies. >> a bunch of child molesting [ bleep ]. >> did you feel threatened at all? >> i definitely felt threatened. >> there were more of you than them, but you felt like they were stronger? >> they were a group of adults ask i wasn't sure what was going to happen next. >> it's unclear from the videos who actually started the confrontation, each side believes it was the first to be taunted. sandmann says his chaperon gave students permission to shout school chants an attempt to
7:34 am
drown out the hebrew israelites. >> do you think it was a good idea to start chanting back at the protesters? >> in hindsight, i wish we had just found another spot to wait for our buses, but at the time being positive seemed better than letting them slander us with all of these things, so i wish we could have walked away. >> did anyone shout any insults back or any racial slurs back at the group? >> we're a catholic school, and it's not tolerated. they don't tolerate racism, and none of my classmates are racist people. >> did anyone say build the wall? >> i never heard anyone say build the wall, and i don't think i've seen it in any videos. >> after a review of the videos, nbc could not hear anyone shouting that hot button phrase,
7:35 am
but nathan phillips claims he heard the teens shout build the wall. >> oh, yeah, i heard that. >> phillips was with a group of native americans coming from an indigenous people's march when he can be seen walking between the students and the protesters. >> i intervened and things just escalated from there. >> phillips says he was trying to diffuse the tense situation. sandmann says he was confused about phillips' motives and why he was there. >> at first we were unsure of whether he was trying to join in and drum to the -- our chants or what he was doing. >> did you feel like he was trying to get somewhere else, to go toward the lincoln memorial? >> i'm not sure where he wanted to go, and if he wanted to walk past me, i would have let him go. >> in that moment, he's looking at you. you're looking at him. what's going through your mind? >> i wanted the situation to die down, and i just wish he would have walked away, but i knew as
7:36 am
long as i kept my composure and didn't do anything he might perceive as aggressive or elevation of the conflict, that it would hopefully die. >> why didn't you walk away? >> well, now i wish i would have walked away. i didn't want to be disrespectful to mr. phillips and walk away if he was trying to talk to me, but certainly i was surrounded by a lot of people i didn't know tha a says he's appreciative

7:40 am
times, but we invited him again now in light of this conversation. i think we're going it hear from him tomorrow on "today." there was actually a really interesting moment at the school yesterday where protesters came, and there was a moment where a young kid who was wearing that red make america great again hat and another native american said, you know, maybe we should just sit down. >> yeah, talk about it. >> sit down and talk about it. >> they swapped phone numbers and agreed to have a meeting. it's nice to see a little thawing in those tensions, because you saw that moment. >> it was also nice to hear from that 16-year-old whose face and that expression that he made for a lot of folks became a symbol of a lot of different things. it was good to hear from him for the first time since we heard from mr. phillips. >> a situation your you actually have video. people are free to make their own judgments of what they think happened here there. >> by the way it was an adult who was there, i thought it was an student. chilling confessions from a notorious serial killer.

8:32 am
but i have the heart of a 60-year-old. is that segment? if you're searching for healthier dinner options for that weeknight rotation, that is matthew jennings. he's got a fun recipe we're going to make in a brown bag, we're going to do arctic char in that bag. >> stick around for the third hour of "today" as well, we've got major star power, amy poehler is here, natasha lyonne will be here as well to tell us about their new dark comedy called "russian comedy". >> we've got andrew reynolds stopping by to talk about going back to the 1980s new york in "black monday". >> and we have something exciting for you tomorrow on "today," keir simmons sits down with 50 shades of grey author e.l. james. she's got a big surprise in store for her gazillions of fans. >> if you didn't like that millennial sex thing, this segment is not for you. it gets a little racy. >> thanks for the heads-up. first a check of the weather. >> you're not going to like thursday. >> "today"'s weather is brought
8:33 am

8:34 am
over the next seven days. and that is your latest weather. hoda. >> thank you so much. >> guess who's here? dr. oz is here, and he's going to tell us what we can start doing today to make sure we live longer and healthier lives. how about that? one of them is eating more. we'll figure it out. first this is "today" on nbc. >> eating more? honestly?
8:35 am
8:36 am
we're back, we're kicking off a new year, long series living longer today. is it true what they say age. >> you know, it's just a number. >> all year we're going to explore aging in america with new tips for living your best life no matter how old or young you are. >> is it true what they say, is age really just a number? all year long we are taking a look at aging in america, living your best no matter how old or young you are. >> historically we had three stages of life.
8:37 am
we had our youth, we had our adult years and then we had those retired years. we're moving towards 100 year plus of life now, a new stage has emerged between adulthood and old age. >> that new stage, a sweet spot of 55 to 75 that is redefining and evolving the way many of us are living. today women are having children later in life. births among moms age 40 to 44 on the rise. the average ceo, 58. nancy pelosi was recently reelected speaker of the house at 78 making history as the oldest person to hold the gavel. 71-year-old glenn close fresh off her golden globe win received her serc7th oscar nomination on tuesday and henry wink letter to winkler took home his first prime time emmy. >> people have a lot more control over their longevity than they think they do. there's a couple prince iples ty can follow. a well balanced diet, you want
8:38 am
to stay physically active and you ls want to stay mentally active. sleep is incredibly important as is maintaining your social networks. >> the number of americans 65 and older will outnumber children, a projected 78 million. >> the rhetorical question is what's the purpose of living longer if you're not also living healthier? i think in the past people focused more on how they looked as they got older. now it's really about how they feel as they get older. >> one study suggests only 35% of people over the age of 75 said they felt old, with half of people older than 85 reporting they are healthy enough to work making the older population still engaged and still social. >> living longer means that we've got more opportunity to contribute, be relevant. living longer means that we've got more opportunity to enjoy. >> here with more on what you can do to live longer today is the host of the dr. oz show. hey, dr. oz. >> good morning. >> often we have to remind
8:39 am
ourselves, sometimes people ask me how old are you, and i'll literally do the math. i don't feel my age. >> you know you're old when you can't remember your able. >> i forget all the time, i'm like am i 47. >> there's good news and bad news, your age does matter. you saw in that beautiful package that a lot of us are going to be older. that's where a lot of assets are a lot of value there. my age, which is 58, i was born in 1960, doesn't really tell the story. none of ours will. i want to hear yours in a second. i'm much more curious about my real age. >> what do you mean? >> my real age is how old my body thinks i am. >> nice. >> how do you calculate that? >> there's a free quiz online. all you need to do is take advantage of the fact that there have been thousands of studies looking at how old we are aging. it doesn't turn out to be as related to our birth year, which is important because two-thirds of how you age is lifestyle related. it's not about your genetics. i'd love to know what your chronological ages are and some commentary.
8:40 am
>> hoda, go ahead. >> mine is -- mine's 54, and i think because of haley i feel a lot younger. i don't feel this age. i would say i'm 54 and i'm a mom. that's how i feel about it. >> i am 47, and i think 47 is the new 46, and i've never felt better in my life in every single way. >> wow. >> this is like an aa meeting. >> i'm 39, some days i feel like i'm 29, some days i feel like i'm 59. just depends on the day. >> i am 37, and i feel like i just still feel like i'm in my 20s. i eat a well-balanced meal. i'm a new mom. i exercise when i can. >> everyone feels younger than their age pretty much? the question is should you. >> that's true. i need to take that test. >> i'm 64, i'm the old guy of the group, but i still feel like i'm in maybe my late 40s early 50s just because i work with all
8:41 am
these folks and i've got fairly young kids. >> i'm 45, and i feel like crap. [ laughter ] >> what do you really think? >> it's what it is. >> what are you going to do. >> it's the red eye all the time. >> what are you going to do. >> i love your honesty. >> i'm 37, too. i'm actually the youngest on these couches. a millennial. and there's days i feel great, and there's days i don't feel as great. >> you're not having enough sex according to -- >> not having sex. >> you mentioned sex but in the real age test, sex will give you three more years of life. >> oh. >> okay. that's why. >> so for men it's how much sex, average male has one time a week, it should be double that, three more times a life. >> is that by yourself? >> credit by yourself. >> for women it's the quality of the sex, not the quantity.
8:42 am
>> so more sex means longer life. >> too late. >> this took a turn. >> you're talking diet, that's important. >> diet's a predictable one, but you get 13 years more of quality life. we're not talking about meandering through it. as an example, vegan lifestyles tend to translate to longevity. if you can get nine fistfuls of produce a day, you can eat actually more and benefit from it. the negative is sugar, especially sugar in the evening, that's a real catastrophe and you'll take away those 13 years. >> that brownie i'm eating every night. >> that glass of wine. >> is the reason you'll look older at your high school reunion than everybody else. >> wow. >> really? >> what about makeup? >> one brow knee? >> of course not. but it's the simple carbohydrates. >> does anybody here know their blood pressure? >> i do. >> knowing that's important, right? >> the number one surprising driver of aging, is high blood
8:43 am
pressure. it takes 12 years off your life. there's a fire hydrant blasting away the lining of your arteries. one-third of everyone who can hear my voice has a blood pressure that's worrisome. if you don't know your number, find it out today. >> is prehypertension a problem? >> like 138 over 88? >> are you asking for a friend? >> no. >> the doctor doesn't put me on a statin or anything for it. >> we don't medicate for under 140 over 90. the optimal blood pressure is less than 120 over 80. >> how do you get it down? >> that's like dylan has perfect blood pressure. >> how do you get it down? >> sleep is a major reducer of blood pressure. let me leave you with one big idea. the biggest epidemic in america today, you hinted at it earlier, it's loneliness. the biggest ager that i want to end with is stress. it takes about six years off your life, especially financial stress. humanity has thrived because we
8:44 am
form a social net. connection. >> real connection, not digital connection. >> a real connection gives an antidote to the effect of stress. the question you have to ask yourself is there one person that you can really confide with in order to deal with stress and is there some kind of a group, organization, entity that you hang with that gives you a sense of community. that is what we need, real friends. >> like jack daniels, my best friend, great guy. >> we'll have a lot more all year, everything from sleep to relationships. dr. oz is going to be back. we can always watch him on dr. oz, check your local listings. >> why am i talking -- the closed captioning person is like what? >> blah blah blah. >> guys, up next, this world class chef lost 200 pounds and kept it up. he's going to share one of his go-to recipes. that's "today" on nbc.
8:45 am
8:46 am
8:47 am
and this morning on "today," a remarkable story of transformation. boston chef matt jennings is a familiar face here at "today," and over the past two years his growing focus on health and wellness have taken him on quite the journey. here's more. >> exactly three years ago my doctor gave me the option to either live or die. i had shown signs of pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, acute anxiety disorder. i was about 405 pounds, and it was time to change my life. my name is matt jennings. i am a chef and five-times james beard nominee. >> being on the line in a restaurant environment is incredibly fast paced. you're constantly tasting items and prepping for the next service. i think that it got to that level of weight by simply not paying attention. what a lot of people don't understand is that food can actually be an addiction. like any good addict, i had my
8:48 am
gutter moment. i remember running around manhattan panicking and crying because i couldn't find a big and tall store. i walked home into my kitchen and said it's time to change my life. i had to get healthy for myself, my wife, and my kids. as a kid i was very creative, very curious, very active. i think somewhere along the line i lost myself, and i forgot that if i'm not good, nobody else is good. i started slow by working out, and i also started to break my diet into four or five small meals throughout the course of a day. because i had been not quite getting the results that i wanted i spoke with my doctor about a gastric sleeve procedure. getting a are procedure like this enables you to change your life slowly. i realized i had an opportunity and i had to seize it. these days i'm focusing on eating lean proteins, very vegetable heavy, some grains. i like flavor in my diet, and i like simplicity. when i look back at that guy in the past, i see someone who
8:49 am
didn't even have the chance to pick his head up from the work he was doing to recognize the ability that he had within himself to save his own life. if you don't like where you're at, all you have to do is start taking small steps to change that. >> matt, that's so inspiring. so many people watching can relate to that, you know, in a rut, want to change their life. need to change their life. it's a life or death situation. between working out and changing your meal plan or just as you say changing your spirit, what are the most important things? >> well, i mean, honestly, it all has to start in here, and it all has to start up here. once you kind of recognize that you just need to take baby steps, right? i think so many of us get overwhelmed with the enormity of trying to make these giant life changes, and that's not what it's about. small incremental steps. >> how do you work your exercise in, matt? everybody's crazed, everybody's busy, how do you work it in? >> how much did you lose by the way? >> 200 pounds. it's all about prioritizing. for me, if i don't get up and do
8:50 am
it right in the morning, it's not going to happen. we get into our day, the next thing you know it's 3:00. you're like it's never going to happen, right? you've got to set time aside and make sure it's priority. >> it didn't come off quick. if you don't get results, you went to the doc and say what do i do, how long did it take you to go from that to this? two and a half years. >> maintaining it is probably as challenging as the initial. >> i think also, a lot of people think the procedure i had is a panacea. that's not the case. you have to work hard. it buys you some time to change your life. >> people also think you're a chef, you know how to do this. you can make yourself lean meals. >> but what we're going to talk about today is doing this sort of thing at home is really easy, and you set yourself up for success by having a great pantry and some great ingredients. >> what are we going to do today? >> we're doing a brown paper char. we're using char as our alternative to salmon, a little more sustainable. we're taking play on the niece wau salad, radishes, tomatoes,
8:51 am
black olives. we've got some radishes with their tops on. we're going to cut those off. we've got beautiful green beans we're going to slice to expose some surface area, it gets them to cook more evenly and quickly. putting those into our bowl here with some radishes, some fresh lemon zest. >> nothing's diced finely, a rough chop on everything. >> this is super rustic. it's meant to be clean and delicious. olive oil our best friend. fat is flavor. we just have to know how to use fat correctly. salt and pepper here, of course we season everything that we make, right carson? >> that's exactly right. >> it's all about seasoning. we're going to toss that together. then we've got some potatoes and tomatoes and garlic we're going to add to the mix as well. >> all this cooks evenly? >> we blanched the potatoes ahead of time is the only thing we've done ahead. the rest of it goes in the bowl, we toss it with a beautiful parsley herb. i'm a proponent of fresh ingredients like herbs, spices, developing a little bit of a pantry at home.
8:52 am
>> cilantro adds flavor to everything. >> it's a love it or hate it thing, i love it. i'm with you. all that stuff will go into the bag. >> you're going to put a bag in the oven? >> this is a paper bag. look at this, we're going to toss this in here, right? >> look at this. >> i'm watching this. >> like cooking in parchment. >> our tomatoes, our garlic. >> we're going to kind of scatter those in and our herbs, our little herb nest here. >> throw it all in. >> we're also doing. >> we're just building a base. our radish greens and herbs are going to create this base. >> okay. >> we're going to come down here. we've got our char. we'll season that as well. >> how different is this from salmon? >> it's a very similar flavor, not quite as strong, a little milder. a little sweeter believe it or not for a fish. we're going to take these guys. >> i love salmon. >> very carefully going to -- >> you put the fish in there, too? >> we're going to lay them in on top of the vegetable bag inside
8:53 am
the bag. >> look at that. >> we're just doing a modern version, black olives, you can use oil cured olives, you can use kalamatas. we're going to take that and fold it up. >> this goes in the oven just like this. >> for how long? what temperature? >> 350 for 35 minutes. >> that's it? >> give or take. >> you're putting it on a baking sheet. >> exactly. >> oh, on a baking sheet? okay? >> this is perfect. >> this is unbelievable. >> this is just simple stuff. >> a great way to cook flavorfully, okay? we're going to take it out. >> i got to go. all right. this is awesome. >> let's see. >> your story's even more awesome. >> this is it. >> thank you. >> for the recipe go to we're back in a moment, matthew jennings
