Sandestin, Randy Evans on This Weekend’s DM

HOUSTON Saturdays and Sundays 4-5 p.m., NewsRadio 740 KTRH

A Presentation of Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods 

SATURDAY: Today’s show comes from a beautiful place we’ve been visiting for more than 15 years. In this case and in this often-chilly season, we’re not traveling to Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort to stretch out on some perfect white sand. We’re chatting with the people who are pulling off another spectacular Sandestin Wine Festival this spring.. There’s wine, there’s food – and yes, there’s always one of the world’s loveliest beaches within an easy stroll. 

SUNDAY: Executive chef Randy Evans of Haven joins us to talk about the latest addition to his restaurant’s wildly popular style of farm-to-table cooking – a farmers market staged in conjunction with brunch each Saturday afternoon – right on Haven’s property. It’s the first farmers market we’ve heard of that isn’t in the morning – therefore, perfect for chefs – and the first one where you can walk around carrying an adult beverage. Definitely an idea whose time has come. In our Grape & Grain segment, we taste the Italian wines of Ruffino.
