Chrissie Manion Zaerpoor, mead lover, AMMA board member and legislative committee member, and owner, with her husband of Kookoolan Farms in Oregon, aims to change that.
She has written and is in the process of editing and self-publishing her book, ‘The Art of Mead Tasting and Food Pairing‘.
The book is a grand tour of the worlds’ meads, coupled with innovative and tasty recipes to show the versatility and pairability of mead.
We are going to chat her up, and find out more about this book, and when we can expect to see it available for purchase.
On Back to Basics, AJ, Manny and I are talking yeast. What to use, when, and in what meads. And we’re tickled to have Pete Bakulic (Oskaar) on with us this evening to help us dig deep, so bring your questions on yeast!
Join us 9PM ET tonight! (8PM CT/7PM MT/6PM PT)
Want to join the conversation, give us a call!! 803-443-MEAD (6323), or Skype us at meadwench (please friend me first and say you’re a listener, I get tons of Skype spam), or tweet to @gotmeadnow.
If you want us to tackle your mead making questions, you can send us a question and we’ll tackle it online!
Note: We lost the broadcast last week at about 10:36 due to nasty storms in the area, but were also recording offline. We are in the process of cutting and pasting various bits together and hope to have the updated recording up in the next day or so. We hoped for last week, but jobs, timing and internet issues here at the GM Studios got in the way.
Bring your questions and your mead, and let’s talk mead! You can call us at 803-443-MEAD (6323), or Skype us at meadwench (please friend me first and say you’re a listener, I get tons of Skype spam), or tweet to @gotmeadnow.
This player will show the most recent show, and when we’re live, will play the live feed. If you are calling in, please turn off the player sound, so we don’t get feedback.
