CAAAKE! And Other Delights by 50/Fifty: The Art of Dessert

I have an official food sponsor. That might be the single greatest sentence I’ve ever written in my life. I’ve had two, actually. First, CHAI PANI sponsored the AVL Food Fans podcast for a good four to six months, and now The Food Fan radio show is sponsored by 50/FIFTY: THE ART OF DESSERT, who style us out every week with KILLER desserts and treats. Chef Mandy Butler is the genius behind the food, and her husband Chris is the staunchest of partners, doing it all from baker’s assistant to deliver driver. I’ve been working with Chris and Mandy for about 10 months or maybe a year now, and I can truly say that I have never met two more reliable people!

Here’s just a few samps of what they’ve provided for the show, including an amazing anniversary cake that they made especially for the 2 Year milestone show!!!
