We’re taking you down south today, where the grits are tender, the buttermilk is flowing and the grills are fired up. Chef Jasper Alexander of Hattie’s Restaurant and Chef Sean Custer of Capital Q Smokehouse are here with us and we’re going to get you drooling for some soul food.
We talk a lot about food here on Food Friday, but today we turn our attention to beverages. We are going to learn all about the fascinating process of distilling and spirits. We are joined today by John Curtain and Matthew Jager, the founders of the Albany Distilling Company, as well as Alejandro De Peral, founder of the Nine Pin Ciderworks, a craft cidery in Albany.
Are you planning a wedding or other major celebration in the near future? Sick of the boring old steak, chicken or fish options that you get to eat at such events? We have two guests in the studio today who can offer a more fun, offbeat perspective on food fit for large, formal gatherings. Brandon Snooks of The Wandering Dago food truck is here, as well as Kim Klopstock of Lily and the Rose in Saratoga Springs.
