Do your desires lean towards the unique and exquisite? Then sharing the pleasurable cuisines, beverages, and chocolates from this week’s Food, Farms, & Chefs guests with your loved ones is exactly what you’re looking for!
We began with restaurateurs, Justin Weathers and Joseph Monnich, who own several dining establishments in Pennsylvania. They are known for bringing an elevated style to foods that you love. They’re joining us to discuss their newest restaurant, Joey Chops. Joey Chops, which will hold its Grand Opening in the coming week, offers a luxurious dining experience with a cocktail menu tailored to impress. Located in Malvern, PA, Joey Chops will put a modern twist on the classic American steakhouse–a perfect choice for your next night out.
Of course, if you’re planning a Galentine’s or romantic dinner, it’s important to choose the perfect beverage to pair with your meal. To help you with your choice, we had a wonderful conversation with Sunshine Foss, owner of Happy Cork located in Brooklyn, New York. In addition to offering bottles from well-known labels, Sunshine selects, sells, and offers brands that reflect her surrounding community. As a Black and Woman-owned entrepreneur, Sunshine recognized how impactful this was to her neighborhood and customers, and began to curate her selection of wines and spirits from minority-owned vintners and distillers. What is even better, Foss offers tastings for the products she carries; and if you are curious–some of these tastings are co-hosted with the brand’s owners as well. Now that is a great pairing!
Speaking of pairing, Aarti Khosla will entice your sweet tooth with her richly decadent confections. Aarti, who owns Le Rouge Chocolates in Westport, Ct, creates her heavenly treats by hand. Originally born and raised in India, Aarti worked and traveled the world before following her passion to become a chocolatier. Once she did, the unique flavors and designs tempted everyone’s palates, and Khosla’s business went from selling at farmer’s markets to owning a brick and mortar store. In fact, her chocolates are so remarkable that she’s won numerous “Best Of” awards from Connecticut-based magazines. So if you’re craving richly decadent chocolates, make sure to stay tuned for the full hour of Food, Farms, & Chefs!
