Lindsay apologizes for going silent and laments on how masks have forced her to smell her own breath.
Lindsay takes a break from calling her pals (don’t worry Corona-Phone-A-Friend is coming back with special guests Cynthia Wong and Rudy Mohosky later this week) to check in and tell you what she’s been eating and cooking in this wild post-Covid-19 world.
Lindsay calls up Chef Mike Lata, Chef and Co-owner of FIG Restaurant and The Ordinary here in Charleston SC to see how the properties are proceeding following the mandate to close all dining rooms in restaurants across South Carolina. Wise words here, people….listen up.
Lindsay calls up a few friends in the industry to see how people are coping with the Covid-19 ramifications all over the country. She calls restaurant royalty: Katie Bell and the endlessly talented Chef Suzanne Cupps of 232 Bleeker in NYC and then switches time zones to chat with the Duke of Hospitality himself: Robert Pratt of The French laundry. SPOILER ALERT: you’ll feel much better after hearing these brilliant minds calmly discuss the state of the union.
Lindsay urges you to eat at restaurants during these wild times and recaps the 15th Annual Charleston Wine and Food Festival.
In this episode Lindsay retells a story about a Perfect Manhattan and accidentally says “Perfect Martini” instead…no less than 4 times because she was a little nervous doing the show LIVE at the Charleston Wine and Food Festival Office. She interviews the endlessly interesting Corrie Wang, two time published author and co-owner of Jack Rabbit Filly (that restaurant everyone can’t stop screaming about. ) and it’s simply a delightful jaunt of a listen. A most sincere “Thank You” to Tasting Notes LIVE a podcast by CHWFF for having us..and to all of the lovely humans who sat in the audience and smiled at us…we are just so grateful.
Lindsay is back from the dead. She ponders whether wellness and F & B can ever truly go together AND She shares THREE chances for you to come hang with her this month alone…yah know to make up for lost time. Check them out below and let’s effin b together!!!!
