A Washington radio staple since 2008 on 1500AM Sundays at 11:00 a.m., Foodie and the Beast – starring Nycci and David Nellis, cohosts of the DC area’s one and only, food and wine variety show – has come to Full Service Radio as Industry Night with Foodie and the Beast. While the broadcast version of the show has brief segments featuring locally , nationally and globally renowned chefs, restaurateurs, mixologists, somms, distiller, brewmasters, pitmasters and much more, Foodie and the Beast: Industry Night instead will be a long-talk formatted show, with in-depth looks at trends and trendmakers across the landscape for edibles, potables, hospitality and more.
Today (Monday, February 19, 2018), we’re talking – and drinking – every aspect of coffee with one of the world’s foremost authorities on a cup o’ Joe and its impact on us and the people who grow it for us, food journalist and author Michaele Weissman. In 2008 Michaele published her groundbreaking book, God in a Cup: the Obsessive Quest for the Perfect Coffee, and a lot of other fine work since – always on the subject of coffee. And we’re going to talk about it all … over several cups of Spike Gjerde’s awesome coffee made at Counter Culture Coffee in DC’s Line Hotel.
