WKYC Offers a Taste of Cleveland Eats
Karen Monath, April Thompson preview Sept. 15 festival during “Live on Lakeside” program
The 2018 Cleveland Eats culinary festival is little more than a week away, and WKYC offered its viewers a sneak peek of what to expect in the festival’s second year.
April Thompson, chef and owner of Wild Thymez Personal Chef Service, and Karen Monath, Cuyahoga Community College’s associate dean of hospitality management, joined hosts Hollie Strano and Alexa Lee on Thursday’s edition of “Live on Lakeside” for a festival preview.
Cleveland Eats is a chance for Northeast Ohioans to enjoy one of the final weekends of summer weather while sampling some of the best food the region has to offer. But it’s more than that. Thompson and Monath highlighted the importance of Cleveland Eats as an opportunity for local chefs to gain notoriety and for its critical function as a fundraiser for Tri-C hospitality management scholarships.
A Cleveland Eats preview is never complete without something in the pan or on the grill. With that in mind, Thompson prepared one of her featured dishes for this year’s festival — a Caribbean curry chicken sandwich.
Cleveland Eats is open to the public from noon to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15, on Mall B in downtown Cleveland. For more information, including ticket prices, restaurants and entertainment, visit the Cleveland Eats website.
