CT restaurants that have stood the test of time, plus John Kanell’s ‘Preppy Kitchen’
Hearst Connecticut Media’s Leeanne Griffin co-hosts this episode of Seasoned, where we talk with the families behind three local restaurants that have stood the test of time, The Griswold Inn in Essex, Shish Kebab House of Afghanistan in West Hartford, and The Glenwood Drive-In in Hamden.
Plus, the content creator behind Preppy Kitchen wants to help you prep for cooking success. Former middle school math and science teacher John Kanell joins us from his goat farm in Litchfield County to talk about his first cookbook, life on the farm, and cozy recipes for winter, including an easy Chocolate-Cardamom Pot de Crème you’ll want to make for Valentine’s Day.
