  • The Noma Guide to Fermentation by @david_zilber.
  • Edna Lewis’s In Pursuit of Flavor (generous canning chapter.) 
  • Celebrating our Mothers’ Kitchens

So she bought some new books:

Episode 317: Greens Pie, Saag Tofu, and Aprons

Joy found an apron to love and this is it.

In food news this week, we talk about how the recent protests have some unintended consequences: Temporary food deserts.

Marisa and Joy have found themselves in an apron role reversal. After years of doing without an apron she’d wear all the time, Joy found her love match apron in an unlikely place (the Chambray Cobbler Apron from Vermont Country Store). Meanwhile, Marisa’s beloved Rough Linen Pinafore Aprons have been MIA since last summer and she’s cooking without one.
