This week on Snacky Tunes, Mitchell Davis (host of Taste Matters) comes in to talk about the upcoming James Beard Awards, and tells us about how they've changed since the foundation's inception in 1986. We're also joined by Mike Thelin, co-founder of Feast Portland, Jamie Feldmar, managing editor of Serious Eats, and Maison Premiere's beverage director Maxwell Britten who tells us how excited he was when he found out his bar was nominated for a 2014 award. Later on, all the way from Sweden we have Alice Boman here to play some beautiful and calming music. This program has been sponsored by Whole Foods Market.
