All Things Edacious.

All Edacious. All the time.

Hear ye! Hear ye! As of today, I’ll no longer be posting here at The Diner of Cville. But not to worry, all the fun is happening over at Edacious – Food Talk for Gluttons! Check out my blogs, my podcasts, subscribe in iTunes, and just generally get giddy over all the great conversations and news I’m gathering in my travels throughout our wonderful region.

I’ll still keep this website up….for the meantime….as a resource for restaurants and such. I have a lofty goal of moving ALL the writing that’s worth moving over to the new digs. But that might take a while. I’m also working on an email list. Please contact me if you’d like to be on it, and I’ll add your name. I promise, the only time I’ll email is when I have something important to say. There’s great things happening at Edacious, so I hope you’ll join us. And like Bartles and James, we thank you for your support. Cheers.

Episode 9 of Edacious – Food Talk for Gluttons.

11008440_1024262270973359_2525274942048375875_nEpisode 9 is up! Available at Edacious – Food Talk for Gluttons, on iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, and your regular podcast outlets. Meet Hunter Smith of Champion Brewery. Hunter is a brewmaster extraordinaire dedicated to experimenting and creating new flavors of beer and providing a comfortable space with which to enjoy them. He collaborates often with local chefs and his favorite musicians to bring you the most inventive, tasty brews around. I found his passion infectious. Champion Brewery is a meeting place with huge amounts of space inside and out to hang out, talk, and of course, sip your favorites including his Missile IPA, Megalodon, Maibock, Stickin’ in my Rye IPA, and my personal favorite the Black Me Stout. For years, I’ve wished for a Downtown Mall meeting place slash beer garden. Champion delivers. In this interview we talk about all the great food trucks that converge here (a different one every night!) and of course the best pairings. How is starting a brewery like buying a house? Where did he take food writer Josh Ozersky for a burger when he was in town (before his untimely passing last month). Can I ever learn to like sour beer? What is the pig for Hunter’s yearly Champion barbecue raised on? This and other important questions answered in Episode 9! I found Hunter to be engaging, thoughtful and you can hear his enthusiasm and fervor for his craft. I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

New episode up now! Available at Edacious – Food Talk for Gluttons, on iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, and your regular podcast outlets. In this episode, meet a woman with a degree in Biology (with a concentration in Molecular Genomics!) who bought a gelato store. Splendora’s Gelato ain’t ice cream. Nor is it frozen yogurt. No dump and mix here. No ice cream dasher which adds air. Gelato is a fantabulously rich, thick, decadent frozen concoction from Italy which makes all the rest look like amateurs.

An awesome conversation touching on subjects like the concept of FOMO as it relates to gelato. What’s FOMO? Look it up. I had to LOL! We also discussed savory gelatos, how owner P.K. Ross creates her unique flavors, what challenges are faced by women-owned businesses today, and beer. Learn the story of the day she signed the papers for Splendora’s. It’s a great one. Is a good palate something you’re born with? Or can it be developed? What’s her most popular flavor? What region of Italy is on her bucket list to travel to someday? Are there some ingredients that just don’t work in gelato because of its cold nature? Who gave her the idea for her popular goat cheese, honey, and fig gelato? Her most surprisingly popular flavor? Listen now to find out!
