This week, on The Faith Middleton Food Schmooze we’re toasting with coffee mugs instead of champagne flutes. Chris Prosperi makes a coffee glaze for steak, Anthony DeSerio shakes up a coffee cocktail in the studio, Alex Province pours a deep, dark red wine with coffee and licorice notes, and the roaster from Willoughby’s in New Haven joins us from Ecuador while on a coffee-finding expedition. Wake up, everybody! It’s a Food Schmooze for coffee lovers. New York City chef Floyd Cardoz, also joins the party. He’s a Top Chef Masters winner and the author of the bold new cookbook: Flavorwalla. Floyd shares recipes for shrimp curry, a street-food omelet, and cauliflower, grilled whole and topped with good stuff like candied ginger, raisins, and pine nuts. Grab that second cup of coffee and join this (very caffeinated) party. The joint is jumpin’.
