Aug. 1 Show: Ruth’s Chris, Longboard Wines


Ruth’s Chris, one of this country’s formative prime steakhouses, recently celebrating the 50th anniversary of its founding in New Orleans with a special gala dinner. Since we were there, we decided it was high time for a chat with a top regional executive and a chef who long ago worked with Ruth Fertel herself. In our Grape & Grain segment, we taste and talk about the wines of Longboard Vineyards with the man who makes them, who also happens to be an Israeli surfer named Oded. Imagine, finding a guy like that… in California!

If you’re in Austin Saturday August 1, do stop by Metier Cook’s Supply on South Lamar for a chance to purchase signed copies of The Delicious Mischief Cookbook. We will be there signing while serving light bites and beers by Abita.
