What do people expect when they order a Hot Toddy? Not the original Jerry Thomas version; those are gross, says Jeffrey. Give your guests something flavorful that really warms them up. Start with a good Scotch Whisky and layer on lemon juice, ginger honey syrup and pimento dram. That is something worth drinking on a cold winter night!
Chef Chris DiMinno - Clyde Common - Portland, Oregon
Chris DiMinno runs the kitchen at Clyde Common in Portland, Oregon. No small task considering that the “European style tavern” is packed during dinner and lunch, every day of the week. Focusing on farm-to-table dishes created with ingredients sourced as locally as possible, Chris and his team consistently serve up delicious dishes like pappardelle, sausage and leg of rabbit, baby carrots, tarragon, scapes, ricotta salata and off the charts snacks like truffled popcorn. No wonder people keep coming back. Chris was Hanging with Harris.
