Chris DeSimone, Chef Ralph Felix, Stephanie Henderson, Michael Marquess, and Matt Russell

This week’s edition of Mother Road Monday on KVOI’s Wake Up Tucson was the finale of our nine-week series pairing delicious dishes from local chefs with distinguished beers from Mother Road Brewing Company!

We were honored to host Michael Marquess and Stephanie Henderson from Mother Road, live in the studio, as we collectively cracked some Limited Visibility Hazy IPAs to mark the end of a rewarding run on radio.

As we sipped on these straw-colored suds with citrus and tropical notes, Chef Ralph Felix of Agustin Kitchen plated up some cioppino that warmed our palates on this cool Monday morning.

Cioppino and a hazy IPA – like a warm hug!

The mussels, scallops, shrimp, calamari, and Scottish salmon, all simmering in a pesto nage sauce, hit a home run with the Limited Visibility. As Stephanie said, “The umami that you get from the fish complements the citrus so nicely; this is a warm hug, it could cure a broken heart.”
