Happy July Fourth Weekend! We head to Las Vegas for this week's episode, where we sit down with executive Chef Sarah Thompson, who oversees Casa Playa at the Wynn Las Vegas. We talk about her time in New York, her discovery of cooking Mexican food at Cosme, and what brought her out to Las Vegas. Then it's a dive into the archives, all the way back to 2013, for a legendary performance from Cassandra Jenkins. She talks about growing up in a musical family on New York's upper west side and shares some tasty tunes with us.
