Suzanne Groth and Jim White

Meet Suzanne Groth from Groth Vineyards and Winery.  Her family made a dream journey from Silicon Valley, where her father was a principal with Atari, to Napa Valley, where they built a legacy of fine winemaking over the last 36 years.  They are now firmly “rooted in Oakville”.  Suzanne shares a colorful story of the evolution of Oakville as an AVA and how her family is now cultivating the third generation of Groth Family members to carry the standard forward.  “Wining and Dining with Jim White” is the podcast devoted to introducing you to the people behind the eats and drinks you love.  You can subscribe to our series on iTunes and never miss a program.  Thanks for joining us.  And remember, if anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner, tell ’em, “RESERVATIONS!”

Cheers!

Laid back and larruping

Dine! Michael’s Cuisine

Chef Michael Thomson and Jim White

Chef Michael Thomson and Jim White

Michael Thomson still packs ’em in at his Cultural District restaurant years after a lot of restaurants vanish.  His upscale comfort food, or “contemporary ranch cuisine”, in a laid back setting, pleases diners for lunch, dinner, or evenings on the patio.  Michael has helped many a young chef learn the ropes through the years.  That’s why his protégées affectionately refer to him as the “Godfather of Fort Worth chefs”.  See Michael in action in our latest CBS video for “DINE! with Jim White”, and be sure to stop by sometime if you haven’t been.  Heads up:  TCU Horn Frogs spoken here.   Show up bedecked in purple and you might even get a better table! Regardless, you’re sure to find good ol’ fashioned Texas hospitality.
