DETROIT, May 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lick the Plate on 93.9 The River the show where the Detroit and Windsor culinary communities tell their stories, is celebrating one year on the air by hosting a complimentary evening of food, music and cocktails for chefs, media and supporters of the show. During the past 15 months, Lick the Plate host David Boylan and producer Mike Clark have interviewed over 60 culinary personalities from metro Detroit, Windsor, and Northern Michigan. That is in addition to the 500+ interviews conducted in the San Diego market where the show and column originated. Royal Oak native and show host David Boylan tells the stories of the talented people behind the culinary resurgence, along with those who work at the establishments that have stood the test of time and have become iconic institutions in the area.
Lick the Plate is teaming up with Detroit City Distillery (DCD) who will host the event and provide cocktails, and Monty's Beef whose food truck will be cooking up samples of their amazing Piedmontese beef. Hence the event name "Beef & Bourbon." DCD founding partner Mike Forsyth and Monty's Beef owner Rachel Leemis were both early guests on Lick the Plate and were excited to team up to host the culinary community for this event. Forsyth recognized immediately that Lick the Plate had a unique format. "The ability to tell my story, plus talk about food, music and my favorite places to eat to the River audience was very appealing and provided great exposure for DCD." Rachel Leemis from Monty's Beef added, "David has a knack for attracting and telling the stories of a wide range of guests and I love that about the show. The interview is such a fun experience and that definitely comes across on-air. Lick the Plate has become a big part of the Detroit culinary scene in a very short time and Monty's is stoked to be a part of the celebration."

About Monty's Beef
Monty's Beef Company was founded in 2010 by Rachel Leemis. A restaurant veteran and culinary devotee whose quest for the purest beef led her across the ocean to Italy to study Piedmontese beef and to such far-flung destinations as Eagle, Michigan to partner with a rancher internationally recognized as the preeminent expert in raising true Piedmontese cattle. No cross-breeding of cows – that is secret to the Piedmonte consistency of quality, and flavorful lean meat that is available at Monty's Beef Company. In April 2016, The Monty's Beef Company mission to bring the delicious flavor, nutrient packed, low cholesterol, 100% Pure Piedmontese Beef to busy beef lovers drove her to put the Monty's Beef Company on the road with the Monty's Beef Company food truck. The Monty's Beef food truck is sought after for lunch on the go, and special events held throughout Detroit. With the full support of Italian and American cattle associations, Monty's Beef Company lives its mission: provide 100% Pure Piedmontese beef raised on U.S. soil. The result of Leemis' quest for high integrity, superior quality, locally grown 100% Pure Piedmontese beef is available for all to enjoy with a variety of beef products offered at Monty's Beef Company in Royal Oak, MI or visit Monty's Food Truck, serving the Detroit area. www.montysbeefco.com.
