Kitchen Curiosities with Betony’s Eamon Rockey

Hi,

We were very excited to sit down and talk Kitchen Curiosities with Mr. Eamon Rockey the General Manager at Betony and head of all of their beverages which they are known for.

In our interview with Mr. Rockey see how to make citrus curls and learn about his famous milk punch (it’s not milk) and what inspired him. By the way we went out the next day and bought the channel knife at Sur La Table.

Trying the milk punch (this one is made for kids). We loved it. It’s thick and fruity but not too sweet.
