Gerry Dawes and the Food & Wine of Spain
Gerry Dawes is America's pre-eminent authority on Spanish food, wine and culture. After spending twenty years purveying fine wines to top Manhattan restaurants, Dawes left the wine trade to devote himself fully to his writing. Gerry joins The Guys to talk about the rich history of Spanish food and wine, current trends (some good, some not so good) and provides a scoop: his plans to build (with partner Michael Whiteman of Joseph Baum & Michael Whiteman Company) a Spanish Culinary Center in New York which would include a Spanish wine shop, cheese shop, tapas bar and traditional Spanish restaurant, which will turn into a nightclub at midnight. Can't wait! Gerry also organizes culinary trips to Spain. For information you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
