Foodie & The Beast from Home: April 25, 2021

On Sunday’s Foodie & The Beast, Nycci flew solo hosting the show, and she says she can totally do it without him! But really, David is the humor of the show, no doubt —  still, what makes a great show is really interesting guests and good conversation. This show checked all those boxes:
*Mitch Berliner says strawberries and rhubarb are at Central Farm Markets … in April! 
*Estebe Salgado is president and owner of Tradewinds Specialty Imports, an import and distribution company specializing in boutique style family wine, spirits, cider, and craft beer. Educated alongside first generation winemakers, Estebe acquired the education and expertise to hand pick award winning wines — and we got to try some! 
*Did you buy an instant pot during covid and have no idea what to do with it? Chef Paula Shoyer, also known as "the kosher baker," is back with her 5th cookbook, The Instant Pot Kosher Cookbook. She had tips and recipes and she made converts out of us.
*For those of you sick of cooking, John Aggrey, CEO of the recently launched Din Din, spoke about his locally-based meal prep/meal delivery company that connects neighborhood chefs with you - the home diner.
*And then it’s all in the family .. on so many levels. Dani Karnoff is Founder of Mapp'd, DC's locally sourced, global foods brand that specializes in rare cuisines and unique ingredients in Ready-To-Cook meals. Not only can you find Dani at Central Farm Markets — she is also Nycci's cousin!
