DETROIT, March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Lick the Plate on 93.9 The River the show where the Detroit and Windsor culinary communities tell their stories, is celebrating 2 years on-air and it's 100th guest during the month of March. During the past 24 months, Lick the Plate host David Boylan has interviewed over 100 culinary personalities from metro Detroit, Windsor, and Northern Michigan. That is in addition to the 600+ 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.
Guests during the month of March have reflected the wide range of culinary personalities the show strives to feature including Detroit Free Press Restaurant Critic Mark Kurlyandchik, Bacco Executive Chef Anthony Lombardo, Jeff Davis and John Muster from Quality Meats and Culinary Specialties who supply many of Detroit's best restaurants, Sandy Wallace an instructor at Schoolcraft College at their award winning culinary arts program, and Executive Pastry Chef Kenneth Daniel Ilich from 2017 Hour Detroit Restaurant of the Year Bistro 82 and The Morrie.
Bacco Executive Chef Anthony Lombardo made his first appearance on Lick the Plate recently. He had this to say about Lick the Plate and his experience on the show. "David has created a unique culinary niche with Lick the Plate in Detroit that has resonated with both the culinary community and the foodies that frequent our restaurants. He has a knack for attracting and telling the stories of a wide range of guests and that benefits the restaurant community and our patrons. It was fun to be able to tell my story in a loose, comfortable format that included my early influences, my road to Bacco, music – which was one of my favorite episodes, favorite places to eat outside of work, and walking the audience through our menu. It was like telling my story in a nutshell and Lick the Plate has perfected that format."
Kevin Miller, General Sales Manager for 93.9 The River and 89X was instrumental in bringing Lick the Plate to Detroit added, "Lick the Plate has definitely become a recognized brand in both Windsor and Southeastern Michigan over the past two years. It provides unique, relevant, entertaining content that covers the exploding culinary scene in both markets and has been an asset to the station."
