Episode 38: Fat Livers!

by whitney & christina on May 2, 2012

The self-serve beer bar makes its way to the States- frat boys everywhere rejoice. California bans foie gras, but if you can still get your hands on it the ladies will tell you what to drink with it. They’ll explore what’s on a winemaker’s playlist and finally, why peanut butter and jelly vodka is probably a bad idea.

The self-serve beer bar concept finally arrived in the US!

The foie gras ban in California is fast approaching. Chefs are not happy! Neither is Michael Ruhlman.

Christina and Whitney’s favorite foie gras wines/grapes? Tokaji, Sauternes, Romorantin and aromatic Alsatian whites.

The ladies were almost intrigued with the thought of peanut butter and jelly flavored vodka. But mainly grossed out.

Crush Quickfire with Robert Macintosh, co-founder of the European Wine Bloggers Conference! His blog: Thirst for Wine. Also find him at Vrazon and Wine Conversation. He is a man about the web (and wine)!

Music that winemakers listen to while working.

Whitney’s favorite wine from the past week- 2010 Donnhoff Estate Riesling. Christina’s- 2010 Donabaum Gruner Veltliner Federspiel.
