Steven suggests a few collabs for Vanessa to consider doing such as

#1 making a truffle with Dragon’s Gate Brewery’s Le Morte d’Arthur Belgian Chocolate Stout,

#2 that she make a special truffle for the annual Beer. Cider. Love. dinner using Finnriver Cacao and Fort George Cavatica Stout,

#3 working with Buddha Kat Winery’s Chat Noir Blackberry and

#4 Vanessa could head out to Astoria and meets up with baker extraordinaire Tamee Harden Blankenship. Together Tamee and Vanessa would make culinary magic happen!

Toward the end of this podcast Vanessa shares some of what helped get her culinary startup off the ground – people skills, networking and tenacity.
