In the food news: Starbucks is intentionally shorting its customers and now they are suing. Read all about it.
Remember how we once told you neither of us has ever made stuffed cabbage? Well, Joy fixed that. She made a terrific version from the excellent cookbook Whole Grains for a New Generation by Liana Krissoff and she shared it with Marisa. We both recommend this recipe to the stuff-cabbage-curious.
We compared notes on cooking from The Indian Family Kitchen by Anjali Pathak, our March Cookbook Club pick. Next up for the Cookbook Club: The Silver Palate Cookbook.
We have Marisa’s interview with the lovely author, food stylist, and TV personality Maureen Petrosky. She keeps her own bees!
At the market we’re stocking on shallots, as usual. We talk about why we love this often overlooked allium.
Homemade curry. Joy took a class about Cambodian curry paste and made her own with a mortar and pestle. She talks all about her experience and about the benefits of fresh, homemade curry pastes in general.
Marisa went to New Orleans for the first time–she talks about her food and drink favorites there. She also explains the food company Zatarain’s (who hosted the press trip she was on) influence on the food culture there. She ate at Justin Devillier’s restaurant Le Petite Grocery and had a celebrity sighting there.
Joy interviewed Kristina Erfe Pines about her beautiful new lifestyle magazine, Spoonful. She told us all about the first Spoonful community event that will take place here in Philadelphia. And she teases some topics that readers will see in Spoonful’s summer issue.
What are we buying at the market this week? PA grown Bluefoot mushrooms.
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.
Did you know that Chipotle recently unseated Subway as America’s favorite “healthy” fast food chain? In this week’s episode, we discussed the Business Insider article that explained this passing of the torch and shared our own thoughts on the two restaurants.
One of our favorite Philly-based fast casual spots is Farmer’s Keep. (Correction: this is the restaurant’s name, not “Farmer’s Table” as Joy said in the podcast.)
The cookbooks we discuss as our longtime loves are:
