S3 //EP6: The John Ash Interview

We almost can’t believe we landed an interview with THE Chef John Ash — the Father of Wine Country Cuisine! But somehow, we did, and it turned out to be one of the most informative interviews we’ve done that brings the world of food and wine together in perfect harmony! In this episode, Meredith & Lou get to learn about Chef John’s past experiences, but they also learn about one of the most fascinating topics for wine lovers: pairing wine and cheese! John was so generous to us as he walks us through some really valuable tips, and, he also provided some great connections for us — and our listeners — to source some incredible cheeses. To help out, we’ve provided the names and links to all of the places Chef John mentioned in this interview.
