CRABCAKE: John Shields…the culinary ambassador of the Chesapeake Bay (September 2019)

Today, we present a crabcake with a guy who REALLY knows his crabcakes… John Shields, who is been called the “Culinary Ambassador of the Chesapeake Bay.” Aside from being the owner of Gertrude’s Chesapeake Kitchen at the Baltimore Museum of Art, John has written multiple cookbooks on the cuisine of the Chesapeake region. The host of PBS’s “Chesapeake Bay Cooking” and “Coastal Cooking with John Shields”, his work has appeared in The New York Times, the Washington Post, Coastal Living, and Southern Living. He is a frequent guest on WYPR radio, local TV and at public events.

John’s newest book, The New Chesapeake Kitchen was released in October, 2018. Here, John’s decades of exploring and championing the Chesapeake region are presented in a volume that articulates his essential philosophy, as well as his commitment to, and love for the Chesapeake—its land and waters, its people, its history, and its food traditions.

Thank you to Ann Alsina, principal at Covington-Alsina in Annapolis, for allowing Tim to take over your conference room for a couple of hours. And we apologize in advance, because he plans on making a habit out of it.

Infertility. It is a problem that many people face for any number of reasons. There are a number of ways to deal with it including adoption and In Vitro Fertilization. But what about surrogacy?

What does it take to be a surrogate, and more importantly, what to expect when you are looking to start a family by surrogacy. The process is complex, but in the end worth it.

CRABCAKE: Spiked Seltzer and a taste of a new Fall beer! (August 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20….or longer in this case, because..well…beer! In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today, we continue our monthly series (no set schedule other than monthly) about beer.  We have a huge distributer of beer right here in Annapolis–Katcef Brothers Inc. and they have a ton of experts on hand to de-mystify beer for us.  Now, full disclosure–I like beer! I like beer a lot!  But, I am not a beer snob and a Bud Light will suit me just fine.

Summer is waning! But we’re not letting go just yet!  This month we talk about a flavorless spiked seltzer (let that sink in for a minute)– Bon & Viv Spiked Seltzer Classic. And it truly is flavorless! We talk about our favorite summer brews (Devil’s Backbone and Troegs) and wrap it up with just a taste of fall with a brand new cider from Bold Rock–their seasonal Harvest Haze! Mixed in we scratch our heads on the success of Naturdays and the new Natural Light spiked seltzer! And Bill spills the beans on Capit-Ale–a new collaboration with Devil’s Backbone and the Washington Capitals!

Solvent…an Annapolis FinTech Startup (E-143)

The cannabis wave is sweeping the country with medical marijuana being legalized state by state, seemingly by the day. Can recreational weed be next? But here’s the catch-22…although growers, processors, and distributors are making money hand over fist, banking that money is extraordinarily difficult due to onerous and vague federal regulations. That’s where Solvent comes in.

John and Tim sit down with Brian Meyer and Tony Richards, two of the five cofounders of this Annapolis financial tech startup that is determined to simplify and revolutionize the banking aspect of the cannabis industry using proprietary tools and processes. We did not get high. Unfortunately.
