Doug Schmick This Saturday on Austin DM

Posted on

AUSTIN: Saturdays 10-11 a.m., Talk 1370 

Doug Schmick started out with a partner – a guy named McCormick many years ago with a not-very-ambitious seafood house in Portland, Ore. They put both their names over the door eventually, and then built the restaurant chain they couldn’t begin to foresee into one of the nation’s largest and most successful. While we continue to be impressed by McCormick and Schmick’s commitment to offering only seafood each night that they got in super-fresh that day, we’re wowed also by the freedom to give their chefs in the individual restaurants in cities like Austin to please the local palate. Doug is here to tell us all about it. Also, on today’s Grape & Grain segment, we taste the wines of Biltmore Estate – yes, the gorgeous mansion in the mountains on North Carolina. Still, as winemaker Sharon Fenchak explains, some of the grapes come from the Tar Heel State, while many come from that other place. You know, California.
