    Paul of TerriorNY

    Due to technical issues, Paul and I moved our live interview to podcast style. Paul is the owner of Terrior Tribeca in New York City. "As it relates specifically to wine, Terroir was viewed as a sandbox: our place to play, with our toys and our rules and our friends. The intimacy and connection we were able to have as a staff and with our guests further enlightened us to what wine could truly be: it could be everything. And an engagement with it could cause you to truly change your world view. The world of Terroir continues to push all boundaries in the wine world (though Marco and I parted ways in 2014)."

    BBQ Black History & Wine

    We felt like this would be a perfect time to highlight some black history so we invited Dr. Howard Conyers. Dr Conyers carries a number of interesting titles – Ph. D. graduate, aerospace engineer, guest lecturer and historian, traditional whole hog BBQ pitmaster. On June 20, he will add another – television celebrity. We watched his guest appearance on Man Fire Food followed by an enlightening discussion.
