In today’s episode, we are traveling to Madagascar! I talk with Chef Elizabeth Falkner, Mixologist Shannon Tebay, and Chef Michale Gulotta about our trip to Madagascar. The winners of the Vnlla Extract Co. challenge accompanied me on a tour with the vanilla producer, Symrise.

You’ll hear about their experiences in Madagascar and their impressions of visiting a country still in the process of discovering itself. They share their favorite local ingredients, the creative ways they utilized them, and you’ll hear about the local food and growing cocktail culture.
