What is the line that separates wine as a beverage from wine as a work of art? Moreover, when do wine and food go beyond being a great meal and become the source of aphrodisiac pleasure? Two very different questions, and two very different scenarios, from two very unique guests on this week’s show.
First up, David welcomes Chris Kern of Forgotten Grapes; a wine and culinary entrepreneur who has an amazing method of matching wines with their metaphorical pop-culture icon or celebrity equivalent! Chris and David get into a wine-mind expanding discussion about the difference between appreciating wine as an artisan product and wine as a beverage. Their topic of artisan wines compared to mass produced wine sets the stage for a more detailed future conversation about the various wine-buying layers of the modern wine consumer.
And for the balance of the show, just when we’ve got your grape juices flowing for wine as an art, David welcomes back a long-time show favorite, and the world’s most respected authority on culinary aphrodisiacs, Amy Riley. David and Amy light up the airwaves with an entrancing talk about the sensually stimulating intricacies of food and wine, as well as her latest cookbook, Eat Cake Naked. Did we say naked? Now you have to tune in!
