Next Up: Galliano in Southern Living

josh_southernlivingThe accolades keep coming for St. Louis’s favorite chefs, and this time they’re for Monarch executive chef, Josh Galliano, who appears on page 28 of the September issue of Southern Living magazine.  Not yet in stores or online, writer Corlanne Griffith Roberts gushes over Galliano’s dishes even if she is an Alabama fan (Galliano graduated from LSU).

Check it out on newsstands in the coming weeks, and join me in congratulating Galliano for joining the growing list of chefs bringing national attention to the St. Louis dining scene.

Remember also, you can check out Galliano’s cooking for yourself at Monarch’s Australian Wine Dinner on August 25. (menu)
