016: Pizza! ft. Charlie Scarlett-Smith and Bradley Sherman

February 11, 2019
00:0000:00

This week, I'm joined by TWO guests- my fantastic friends Charlie and Brad! Together, I call them The Pizza Bois. We hear about their comfort foods and recent food loves and then move onto the main event: PIZZA. 

We discuss NY style versus whole-pie Neapolitan, Charlie and Brad's adventures in making pizza, their Pizza Boi origin stories, our personal pizza-eating techniques, their misadventures in eating pizza in Fernie, British Columbia (including an abomination called Taco Pizza), their ideal topping configurations, how Canada is sort of a pizza desert thanks to the dairy lobby (but that the decidedly meh by-the-slice offerings still have a place in our hearts), and then- *a special feature!*- we get to hear some of the footage that these pizza bois recorded on their phones on their five-borough pizza tour of New York City.

Also, here's a link to the pizza-making video that Brad mentioned: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtAeKM_f2WU

015: Sauce! ft. Aaron Manzali

January 28, 2019
00:0000:00

This week my guest is my husband, Aaron! We briefly talk about his comfort foods and recent special food experiences, and then we dive deep into a big vat of SAUCE.

We talk about Aaron’s ideal hot dog toppings setup, the origin of his undying love of all sauces under the sun, why he can’t do food on the go, his opinion and rating of *many* different sauces (but especially mayo), which sauces are socially acceptable to eat with a spoon, his absurd but effective fry-dipping method, which sauces would make it onto a hypothetical sauce utility belt, whether or not a mcflurry is a sauce, and whether or not maybe Aaron just doesn’t like chewing.

As always, there's some cooking tips and meal ideas sprinkled throughout.

We talk about finding your bread bible (theirs is Ken Forkish's Flour Salt Water Yeast), the adorable world of breaddit, the high highs and low lows of baking sourdough, how underemployment can lead to a sourdough habit, different meals that let sourdough shine, the weirdness that is sourdough starter, and the overlap between crossfit people and sourdough people (luckily/obviously, we are both the latter).

013: Baking! ft. Julianna Duholke

January 6, 2019
00:0000:00

This week, I'm joined by my magnificent friend Julianna! We talk about President's Choice white cheddar mac and cheese (if you know, you know) and holiday meals, and then we delve into the world of baking. 

We talk about baking as meditation in this, the darkest timeline; the beauty of sharing baked goods and which ones to bring to a party; the joy of teaching friends to bake; which ingredients you should always double; how to bake without spending all your money; why all brownies should have icing and none should have nuts; the origin and life of her 10-year-old baking binder; and Julianna's extremely true but brave and controversial opinion: that everyone can bake.

Here's Jules's guest post on my food blog, where you can find more of her baking tips! https://chewonthis.co/2016/11/08/guest-post-the-joy-of-not-cooking-and-baking-instead/

012: Cascading Leftovers Theory! ft. Ma’ayan Plaut

December 30, 2018
00:0000:00

This week, my friend Ma’ayan joins me to discuss her genius meal prep method called Cascading Leftovers Theory, which is inspired by the prep fridges of restaurant kitchens. Basically, it's all about prepping individual building block ingredients early in the week and turning them into different things every day. We talk about how and why she started cooking this way, how it prevents boredom and encourages creativity, what staple ingredients she relies on, the power of sandwiches, seasonings, and immersion blenders, and how going out to brunch can help you try out this method of cooking!

You can find Ma’ayan on Twitter @maayanplaut.

010: Ramen! ft. Lian Parsons

December 16, 2018
00:0000:00

This week, my friend Lian joins me to talk ramen!

First, we hear about her perfect comfort food- carbonara- and then we get deeeep into ramen.

We cover what she looks for in restaurant ramen and we then move onto the instant stuff: brands, price, how to improve it (including making your own seasoning packet, adding fried garlic and fresh scallions, etc etc there’s so many TIPS!)

We also cover how instant ramen has the power to be there for you on difficult days when the ol’ mental health isn’t at its best and literally nothing else will do the trick.

Lian shares her best bets for ramen in Boston, London, and Philly, and at the end, you’ll hear a BONUS COMFORT FOOD SECTION about the perfect, flaky, British institution that is the Greggs sausage roll.

Here’s Lian’s post on how to improve instant ramen:

009: South African Food! ft. Carla Conradie

December 9, 2018
00:0000:00

This week, my lovely friend Carla joins me to discuss South African Food!

We talk about the joy she finds in rooibos tea, the cultural institution that is braai (including boerewors and braaibroodjie), the biltong bin at JFK, droewors, melktert, koeksisters, bobotie, and the supremely first-gen/immigrant feeling of being the weird Canadian cousin when you go back to where your family's from. 

And of course it couldn't be an episode with Carla without a lengthy section on Nutella, so we covered that right at the top. 

As promised, here's a link to South African celebrity chef Zola Nene, and food writer Hope Malau!
