This week on In the Drink, host Joe Campanale sits down with Jerusha Frost, New York Sommelier. Recommending wine to New York diners for almost 8 years now, her love for wine was discovered while living on a vineyard in Austria and was then fostered at Wallsé by Aldo Sohm. After working for him there and Le Bernardin, she had a brief stint at the then newly-opened RN74 in San Francisco, returning to NYC to open The Lion in the West Village. From there, she moved uptown, to work with Michael Madrigale at Bar Boulud and Boulud Sud. Currently, she is working with Chef Didier Elena and a roster of the world’s best chefs at Chefs Club by Food & Wine, where she has curated a list of fine and delicious wines from around the world. Jerusha holds an Advanced Sommelier Certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers, a Diploma of Wine & Spirits from the WSET (Wine & Spirits Education Trust) and a B.A. from Macalester College. Tune in for a great show! This program was brought to you by Michter’s.
“I’ve really learned how a wine that you wouldn’t necessarily gravitate to can be something you would love based on what you’re eating. It can make the food better!” [4:48]
“Work with someone who has tasted so much more than you and knows more than you and can teach you. There’s so much to learn and I still have so much to learn.” [13:39]
