Guest Spot on HearSay with Cathy Lewis

I was contacted to talk a little bit about the local beer scene on the area's public radio station WHRO. HearSay with Cathy Lewis does a weekly segment called the "Delicious Dish" where Patrick Evans-Hylton, a well-known regional chef and author, talks with Cathy about food happenings in the area. Next month is Virginia Craft Beer month so today's topic was craft beer (of course.)

Kevin O'Connor of O'Connor Brewing Co. was also on site to sample some of his beers and talk about the explosion of craft brews in the area. Follow this link to listen!

I-heart-food! Actually, I love food. I-heart-food was the closest domain name I could register this late in the game that was related to my goals here. Makes you wish you could go back and squat a bunch of good names, right?

This is about food—cooking it, eating it, reading about it…probably some random blurbs here and there too; stuff not related to food will definitely be on here.
