TONIGHT! On AVL Food Fans: Food Writer Fight!

Hello Asheville!

TONIGHT! On the AVL Food Fans, podcast, Chef Joe Scully and I will be talking to my fellow food writers, Gina Kae Smith and Jonathan Ammons from Mountain Xpress! This should be fun because everyone knows that ALL food writers HATE each other! Jon, Gina and I will dust it up over who’s prose is more pro, and who’s verbiage is pure garbage! And all of us will attack Joe, because he owns 2 restaurants, so of course he’s the common enemy.

After none of that happens, Joe and I will discuss our topic for the evening, which can be summed-up in one word: Pumpkin. Or, in my case, two words: Fuck pumpkin. Joe will have a recipe!!!

Before any of that happens we’ll be visited by Jason Sandford from Ashvegas, who will help us deliver the Food News! Deschutes is coming! Deschutes is coming! Aaand I’m not sure how I could possibly care any less. Maybe Jason can help me to understand the importance of having yet another brewery in Asheville.

Tune in to hear us stream LIVE at 8pm tonight, and be sure to join us in the chat room too!
