    Essential Work with Andre Mack

    Richard and Jazmin sit-down (virtually) with Andre Mack; renowned sommelier, winemaker and, most recently, essential worker in Brooklyn at his newly opened &Sons wine bar and market.  The guys wears a lot of hats and we get in to all of them on this episode.  Not to mention he finally settles the controversy over Taylor Pork Roll/Ham.  Plus, geek out with Richard as he asks those questions you always want to ask a sommelier from a Michelin-starred restaurant like: what's the oldest bottle you've opened or what was the most expensive bottle of wine you've sold? Come along for a inspiring talk and walk away with two solid sub sandwich recipes too.

Great Find

My niece introduced me to this podcast and I am binging as I run. Great mix of humor and insights. Love that you go beyond cooking, but also dive into the world of the kitchen or running restaurants. Thanks for wonderful entertainment!

code switching, interruptions and an unnecessary sidekick

I was always a *light* fan of Richard since his TC season. I respect his culinary work, but something about him irks me and there’s always been something off-putting that I could never quite put my finger on. Unfortunately, this podcast has helped illuminate what it is about Richard that just doesn’t sit right with me.

First off, Richard’s code switching is insufferable. His attempt to sound street, swaggy (read: not white) or whatever, (especially when he talks to dudes like Dale Talde or Michael Voltaggio, or talks about sports) is very cringe-y. His wife does the same.

Speaking of Jazmin, she contributes so little to the conversation (literally and figuratively), and it’s obvious the two of them thought it would be “cute” to do this together. In podcasting, unfortunately there is very little room for such blandness.

oh... and Richard’s interrupting is awful.

Enjoyable

I typically enjoy this podcast mainly because of the foodie aspect and I’m a true fan of Top Chef. I was disappointed that you were lucky enough to be able to share a live recap of the Top Chef All Star Finale and you hadn’t even watched the show through the season. You couldn’t really share each of the chefs journey. Also it came off as a bit arrogant, since both of you owe much of your fame and reputation at such a young age, to TC
Too busy during the quarantine? Maybe include Stephanie in an airing too.
