The “Wet Your Whistle” Series continues with MICHAEL MADRIGALE, HEAD SOMMELIER at Bar Boulud!
We can’t imagine anyone better than Michael Madrigale, Head Sommelier at Bar Boulud and overseer of the wines at Epicerie and Boulud Sud to talk us through how to intelligently buy wines in a restaurant. A Food & Wine 2012 “Top Sommelier” title holder, Michael is well positioned to guide us on how to order wines properly, what to consider, what to ask and most importantly, what NOT to do. In particular, the restaurant’s emphasis on Rhone Valley and Burgundy wines will allow us to relate specific examples of Michael’s wisdom in a narrower band to make the discussion far more applicable in a restaurant setting generally or specifically at one of the Boulud restaurants.
Join us live at noon on July 23rd as we continue our Wet Your Whistle series, and give you something tangible to show off with the next time you pick up the wine list at a restaurant!
Eddie Huang and co-host Elena Bergeron welcome Michael Madrigale to Monosodium Glutamate. Michael is Head Sommelier at Bar Boulud in New York City, an expert in one of Eddie's favorite subjects - wine.
They talk about the gentrification of wine, how to save old wine-making preferences, and some wine reccomendations that novice wine-drinkers.

He is here to talk about his new book “Magic in a Shaker”, which is a must-read for any bartender whether they are beginners, experienced, or just a connoisseur of spirits and cocktails. His book is “seasonal”, but he can explain what he means by that.

Another Wednesday, another edition of Canadian Musician Radio. With all of these great summer festivals and tours, we've been able to deliver a heap of artist interviews, and this week is no different.
Join us as we catch up with Juno-winning six-piece "folk popgrass" outfit The Strumbellas, singer-songwriter Astrid Young (also the half-sister of the one and only Neil), and Ryan McCambridge.
The Strumbellas are playing summer festivals across Canada and the U.S. this summer, continuing to promote the sophomore album, We Still Move Dance Floors. While its predecessor, My Father and the Hunter, was nominated for a Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year in 2013,We Still Move Dance Floors actually took the trophy earlier in 2014 and was recently long-listed for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize. They're more focused than ever now, and we'll find out why.
Musician, composer, actor, author screenwriter, and sommelier Astrid Young released her fourth solo record, One Night at Giant Rock, at the end of June. In a special performance, Young is kicking off her "psychedelic acid folk" tour in southern Ontario in late July and will work her way west. The album, featuring Victor DeLorenzo of the Violent Femmes is a collection of songs that reflect her personal discovery of the karmic meaning of all her relationships. She speaks about the long gaps between records, some of her other musical endeavors, and more.
Finally, in addition to being a studio engineer who's been the right hand man of producer/engineer David Bottrill (Peter Gabriel, Tool, Dream Theater), Ryan McCambridge has been making music under the moniker of A Calmer Collision. We talk about the sonic balance he's struck between modern rock and electronica as well as how his experience in the studio informs his work as a musician and more.

She returned to Los Angeles to attend UCLA where she earned her Bachelor's Degree in English

She is inspired by her work, her team and the incredible opportunities Shade Hotel has offered her.
His initial intention was to spend only 3 or 4 months in the area.
He unknowingly began his career in the restaurant industry as a busser in Sausalito, proceeded to work as a waiter/bartender and then moved into management.
The desire for more food and wine knowledge was sparked while working at Postrio in 1992 with the then "not so famous" Chef Wolfgang Puck.
Marcelo started learning more and more about food and wine, became a certified sommelier in 1997 and has been designing wine lists and managing several top restaurants in SF and Marin County ever since.
His passion for wine took a turn in 2006 when he met Agustin Huneeus, proprietor of Quintessa and three short weeks later, Marcelo began working for Agustin at Quintessa winery.
This morning, we’re going to learn about Shade Hotel’s monthly Wine Academy which takes place tonight and will be featuring the wines of Quintessa.
