Extra Virgin, a beloved, go-to spot for home cooks and top local chefs alike for premium olive oils and more, recently reopened in a new location, and Cat drops by for a visit.

She talks about what she learned from the owner about the olive-oil producers and through the tastings and brings McGraw a sample.

Then, Cat takes listeners on a trip up the Great River Road in Illinois, with a stop-off at Grafton Winery & BrewHaus for a great IPA and some interesting fruit wines.
