'Feasts and Fashion' Podcast Launches April 23!

The culinary-and-style-focused platform brings a fresh new perspective to the food and beverage world every Friday.

When I started the LIVE! Culinary Series on Instagram a year ago, I had no idea the impact it would have on the industry. At the time, it was something for me to do to connect with chefs, restaurateurs, bartenders, and other culinary professionals to keep me updated on how the industry was overall handling the pandemic.

For the first few months, I was interviewing guests several times a week and gaining all sorts of knowledge that I used for various articles on Substack as well as major media outlets like Esquire, “WGN Morning News,” and WGN Radio 720. Last fall, Amaze Media Labs took notice, and brought me aboard to help launch its Eat|Drink|Dine Podcast Network, which will showcase new podcasts by 20 of the country’s leading food and beverage journalists, bloggers, and personalities.

I’m excited to be part of the team with a platform that totally fits my personality, focusing on food and personal style. Feasts and Fashion is my opportunity to continue my conversations with fascinating culinary personalities — including chefs, bartenders, restaurateurs, wine and beer experts, food content creators, etc. — and really dig into what drives them to do what they do. How does their sense of style fit into their culinary points of view? Each episode will be fun and engaging, with snippets of video posted to my YouTube page and other social media channels to truly get a sense of who each guest is.

I cannot wait to share with you how much fun I’ve had with these discussions. Subscribe to Feasts and Fashion so you don’t miss an episode (of course, I will be posting them here, too). Get ready for the Feasts and Fashion experience every Friday!

Thank you all for your support over the years!
