February 6th- Canadian Culinary Championships

Tasting Room Radio AB_BANNER

Do you love your Australian wines? We start with a mini OZ tour. Mark Davidson is a sommelier who now represents wines of Australia, and he brought with him two of Australia’s cutting edge winemakers. Brendan Keys is from BK Wines Adelaide Hills, and poured his much talked-about Skin and Bones. Matt Fowles from Strathbogie Range  brought his Ladies who shoot their Lunch (meant to pair with game), and his other wine Are you Game?

The Show

James Nevison talks about his book Had a Glass, Top 100 wines under $20.00.
The Wine Diva and I join forces to interview Ed Flaherty, the wine maker of Tarapaca in Chile.

The Canadian Culinary Championships take place this weekend in Kelowna, with the very best chefs competing over two hard days. Three of those chefs are from Alberta and BC:

Sam Roberts has a new album coming next week. My interview with Sam will run on Mulligan Stew as soon as the music gets here. In the meantime Sam is a huge wine fan and he joins us on Wednesday’s TRR.



– on our last show for CKUA.  Jason Priestley and I visit David Foster in Malibu.
We talk wine and David’s career in music. It’s a really good interview.
