Cheers! This week on Fuhmentaboudit!, hosts Mary Izett and Chris Cuzme open up the show with a great recap of fermentastic events before introducing Louise Leonard to the program. Louise is a chef, food personality, stylist, and booze lover who was recently crowned the winner of Season 2 of ABC’s primetime hit, The Taste, where she was chosen from a nation-wide search to compete with professional chefs and home cooks. She shares how she fell in love with not only cooking but cooking with beer, wine, and other spirits. After the break, Louise shares some of her favorite dishes that she’s become known for as well as why she’s such a fan working with the boozy beverages. Tune in for a great show! This program was brought to you by Union Beer Distributors.
