Epiventures Breaks Down Local Food Scene with “Cincinnati Deconstructed”

Chef and writer Courtney Tsitouris runs Epiventures which tells “stories about food.” She has joined forces with local film director, Michael Holder, to produce Cincinnati Deconstructed –  a video series about Cincinnati’s food scene and the people who make it interesting. Like the Queen City Project, Cincinnati Deconstructed showcases unique, local people and places that are taking the city to a higher level. Tsitouris describes the project:

Our intention is to give you an intimate, behind-the-scenes peek inside the unique personalities that define the food and drink scene here in Cincinnati.

The most recent video, released today, delves into the world of Belgian-born Jean-Francois Flechet whose Taste of Belgium has a devout following in Cincinnati and beyond. His new Belgian bistro at 12th and Vine was named one of Cincinnati’s best new restaurants and his original location at Findlay Market continues to seduce the taste buds of passersby.

Both of the following videos are top notch and required viewing if you’re at all interested in Cincinnati, OTR, or the stories behind good food:

Molly Wellman was the subject of the pilot episode. Wellman is the craft mixologist who opened Japp’s Since 1879 with Michael Redmond, an owner of Neon’s Unplugged.

Flechet and Wellman are both located in and passionate about Over-the-Rhine. Flechet has multiple locations including Columbus and Nashville, and Wellman is branching across the mighty Ohio to Covington, Kentucky to open the Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar with her business partners.

Thanks to Cincinnati Deconstructed, viewers can clearly see the love both entrepreneurs have for Cincinnati. Getting to know more about the passionate people who are blazing new trails in OTR can’t help but make one fall a little deeper in love with Cincinnati.
