Saturday, July 28

We wrap up six months of Food Talk STL with a big show this Saturday.

Catherine Neville of Feast Magazine will share highlights from the 2012 “Feast 50,” a list of reader-submitted people, places and things they love from the STL food & beverage scene. (A few on the 2011 Feast 50 list were staff picks.)

Angie Ortmann, who wears many hats, will talk about sharing her love of wine with others. How does a restaurant put together its wine list? We’ll ask the @STLwinegirl, as she is known on Twitter.

Al Carfagna of Mama Gusto’s is a personable guy who has brought his pizza (and other Italian food) to St. Louis. Mama Gusto’s has been a big success in Lebanon, Illinois and now is growing in popularity at 7700 Ivory.
