Happy new year! After an extremely cold winter break and a freakin' bomb cyclone, we start 2018 right with an in-depth discussion on two of our favorite things: booze and Chinese food.
After having interviewed Nom Wah chefs Jonathan Wu and Calvin Eng in past seasons, we finally get around to talking to the beverage team of Nom Wah Tu to better understand what exactly pairs well with the many flavors and spices found in Chinese cuisine.
In the first episode of the year, Lynda sat down with General Manager and Beverage Director, Sophie Maarleveld, as well as the creative mind behind Nom Wah Tu's cocktails, Phillip Szabados, to talk natural wine, Chinese-inspired bitters, and the differences between Western and Chinese drinking culture. Plus, a live tasting in the studio!
