This week’s show is full of inspiration–with all our guests pursuing their goals and achieving their life-long dreams, all of which benefit your eager palate.
We began by introducing you to David Dietz, Owner of BBC Tavern and Grill and the recently opened Bar Reverie in the adjacent venue. Dietz, who has worked in the restaurant industry since a youth, opened BBC Tavern and Grill under the original concept Brandywine Brewing Company. As time went on, they essentially switched venues with Pizza by Elizabeth’s and Dietz re-established his business as BBC Tavern and Grill as the new venue lacked space for brewing craft beers. Now, Dietz has extended his culinary pedigree with his French-based concept, Bar Reverie. Bar Reverie offers “a travel-inspired menu with a nod to French cuisine” and an extensive wine selection.
Next, we caught up with the owner of Spotted Horse Provisions, Amanda Newman. Amanda’s ‘jam’ is to focus on fresh ingredients from local farmers to create her sought-after sauces, preserves, and other delicious products. As a fourth-generation canner, Newman is well-versed in the versatility of creating scratch-made, sustainable foods for herself and her family. Now, she is bringing her family recipes (and delightful products) into our homes by selling them at local farmer’s markets–and soon to the shelves of your favorite privately-owned grocery markets!
Lastly, we uncorked the story behind Maryland’s first black family-owned winery: Boyd Cru Wines. Jon’ll and Matthew Boyd, who are the dynamic duo behind Boyd Cru Wines, enlightened us with their brand’s origin story and what inspired them. Initially, the Boyd’s discussed investing in a winery since the couple enjoyed visiting wineries in their free-time. So when the pandemic shut down the world, the positive-thinking couple recognized the additional time and opportunity it afforded them to pursue their goals–and Boyd Cru Wines was born. Since then they’ve won awards for their wines and are currently creating new vintages for all of you to enjoy!
