Our Moderator Emily gives hard-hitting stories of food in the news to our panelists and they discuss their attitudes and opinions in our Weekly Baste Segment. This week we discuss Starbucks, butchers cuts, Meghan Markle’s baby, barbecue and more. Our guests for The Weekly Grill are Aaron Oster and Justin Kingsley Hall. Aaron Oster is the co-founder and chef of A-OK Berkshire Barbeque, located in North Adams, Massachusetts in the old Sprague Electric guardhouse on the campus of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Together with his wife, Alexandra Oster and Orion Howard, Aaron’s goal was to put better food on the tables of those within the community and together they provide a simple, straightforward menu, great service and a fun atmosphere. Justin Kingsley Hall gets his inspiration from the people he has met and worked with over the years as he moved around the country from California to North Carolina, Florida, and Nevada as well as his many travels. Justin’s main objective is to create food and an experience that inspires conversation; not necessarily about his food but wholesome conversations that cause people to spend more time around the table. He focuses on from scratch farm to table cuisine using sustainably grown, raised & caught seasonal ingredients. Hall is currently preparing to open Main St. Provisions in the Arts District of Las Vegas in the Fall of 2019. He was most recently the Executive Chef of The Kitchen at Atomic in downtown Las Vegas in 2017 he helped open Sparrow + Wolf with Chef Brian Howard whom he had work with previously at Comme Ca in the Cosmopolitan & their West Hollywood Location. Justin has also taught at the Art Institute of Las Vegas for 5 years, co-created a local charity event called Whiskey In The Wilderness and operated SLO Boy, a pop up and catering service which started in a kiosk on Las Vegas Blvd. Traveling around the city as well as out of state his concept was inspired by his wine country upbringing and life in Las Vegas.
