Show 532, July 1, 2023: Executive Chef Andie Hubka, Cork & Fork, Indio, CA Part One

Andie Hubka of Platinum Hospitality Group

Cork & Fork restaurant in Indio was born out of their Cooking School, Cooking with Class. What started as a weekly get together on Wednesday evenings inside the cooking school featured small plates and wines by the glass. Each week the list of attendees grew and grew until Executive Chef Andie Hubka was turning away more people than she could seat. The empty space next door suddenly became very appealing!

A big move to a new location in 2023 saw the addition of twice the seating, a full bar and private dining rooms. The rest as they say, is history!”

This is casual fine dining at its best. The menu features creative small plates ranging from classic comfort to exotic fusion. Chef Andie uses the highest quality ingredients and shops locally, organically and sustainable whenever possible. Cork & Fork’s Mix, Match, Share & Enjoy philosophy allows you to choose your own adventure and order many small plates to share, or let the chef choose for you if you’d like with their Seasonal Tasting Menu.”

“Cork & Fork offers an eclectic list of affordable wines by the glass and bottles to share, with perfect pairing advice for each of their tasty dishes. The wine list features important varietals and award-winning winemakers from around the world, with an emphasis on food friendly wines.”

Chef Andie Hubka takes a break from her busy kitchens to join us.
