Have you listened to The Food Podcast? It is hosted by cookbook author and Love Food host Lindsay Cameron Wilson and I am completely hooked. There are very few podcast episodes that I choose to mark as unlistened to in my feed so that I can relisten and savor the words for at least a second time, but with The Food Podcast, I find myself continuing to save episodes for a second listen.
I have loved all eleven episodes, but my favorites have been the last 4 (episodes 8-11) which makes me completely excited to see what is coming next. In episode 8, I was introduced to The Thug Kitchen and I was laughing out loud! The episode was not only funny, but completely inspired me to cook up some more vegan dishes. As soon as I got home, I added their new cookbook to my Amazon cart.
Ellen Bennett of the wonderful Hedley and Bennett (episode 9) is such an inspiration to do what you love to do, and her aprons are so lovely. Hearing her describe her 16,000 square foot office/showroom/work space as Willy Wonka meets Julia Child makes me want to visit! I love her philosophy, the fact that everything that is used to make their products is sourced ethically, and how much attention to detail she pays to each design. I am pining for the Beluga apron in both a petite and child's size to put to use in my own kitchen with my mini helpers.
Beth Kirby of Local Milk is a genius of words and light and listening to her speak about each in episode10 was a true delight. Her food photography is outstanding and her blog posts make me want to dive right into her work. She is a personal favorite because of her connection to New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, but most importantly because she is a native and currently resides in Chattanooga. Hoping our paths cross some day!
And, the latest episode focusing on Food Rituals made me take pause while running to jot down a few notes. It was so good. I am fascinated by people's daily routines and of particular fascination are the routines of creative people working from home. I loved hearing about how people start their day what piece of clothing they must be wearing or what breakfast food fuels their work. Andrea Dorfman's mornings are the absolute best though--a skinny dip,bike ride, and berry picking all before breakfast! I can hardly wait to read Mason Curry's work, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work.
Lindsay, your work is beautiful! I can hardly wait for more episodes!
