In this extended special episode, Joy and Marisa review all their favorite food things from 2015, including restaurants, recipes, cookbooks, gadgets, blogs and websites, podcasts, and more.
We want you to listen to the episode, so we are not making a list of everything here, although Joy did say she’d provide a link to the Nom Nom Paleo Cracklin’ Chicken recipe, so here you go. If you want more information about anything we talked out, say so in the comments here and we will help you out 🙂
We hope you have an auspicious and delicious New Year! Happy 2016.
Something we read: is cabbage the new kale? Smoked, fermented, slow cooked, braised, stuffed and salad-ified. We don’t think cabbage was ever out of the limelight in our kitchens.
Tacos are a many splendored thing, and we talked all aspects of the classic: fillings, shells, salads, toppings. Sometimes we make them at home and sometimes we go out to eat them.
The first installment in our new series on cooking fats is dedicated to: Olive oil! Marisa went to a tasting seminar this year and lays down some serious know-how about how to taste and choose the extra-virgin kind. Joy tells you her favorite fancy finishing oil.
Rainbow chard–it’s the vegetable Joy loves but cannot remember how to pronounce! We talk about the key to loving this nutrition powerhouse and all the ways we like to cook chard.
An finally, our echo-y interview with Alexis Siemons. You should go and check out her blog. Do you have a special tea lover in your life? Consider ordering Alexis’ beautiful With Tea journal. It comes wrapped in a vintage handkerchief.
First up in episode three, we talked over a recent Washington Post story about the common (and controversial) practice of working in coffee shops. (Do you have opinions? We’d love to hear them in the comments here.)
Marisa explained that she enjoys working at Nook and Good Karma Cafe and shares her tips on being courteous about it. Joy can’t get much writing or editing done in cafes, but she does have a lot of meetings at Chhaya. Share your favorite spots with good coffee and strong wifi in the comments.
