In an episode brimming with enthusiasm, the Drinking Partners welcome Chef Claudie Pierre, owner of Eminent Hospitality Solutions – one of Pittsburgh’s premier catering companies. Chef Claudie surprises them with a special gift, or as Day says, “Big things with shiny bags.” The trio sips on the Appleton Estate Jamaican Rum that Mr. Pierre has brought and examines the often-unexamined side of opening a restaurant as Chef Claudie offers advice on what not to do. Food is centric throughout the interview, with the Drinking Partners hilariously reminiscing about their favorite dining moments. On a more serious note, the group analyzes the connection between productivity and healthy eating and the importance of urban revival. An exuberant vibe and vivacious guest make this episode a fast listen.
