Today, we're excited to welcome CHRISTIAAN RÖLLICH to Salt + Spine, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks, in our first-ever DRINKS WEEK. This week, we're releasing four all-new episodes with some of the leading authors of recent cocktail and wine books.
Christiaan Röllich oversees the bar program for Suzanne Goin's Lucques restaurant group, which includes Los Angeles spots A.O.C., Tavern, and Lucques. His first cookbook is Bar Chef: Handcrafted Cocktails. In today's show, we'll talk with Christiaan about the influence bars had on him at an early age, what led him to bartending, and how he approaches his work as a “bar chef.” Plus, we'll play a cocktail-themed game!
