Today on The Lone Star Plate, we’ve flown all the way across the pond to London, England, to visit the very first certified organic pub in London, the well named ‘Duke of Cambridge’.
With me today is Matthew Sherwood, the producer of Factual America podcast, a show that’s just been released, and tells us the true story of what’s really happening in America.
We also have Ben Sauerborn, from In The Kitchen With Chef Ben, he’s a master chef, and really knows his stuff about food.
Finally, we are joined by Sebastian Sauerborn, CEO at Mount Bonnell Advisors, founder of Alamo Pictures, and teh co-host of the Move Your Business to the United States Podcast.
We dine on pheasant, risotto, and pork cheek, and all four of us are absolutely blown away by how incredibly delicious our dishes are. This is some top quality food, and nothing beats good food with good company.
We talk about England and Texas, and what makes both places so special. The talk then moves to recipe boxes, honey, food trucks, and podcasts.
All in all it’s a spectacular evening, and definitely the best food we’ve had on the show yet.
