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.
We recorded this one in the middle of a heat wave, and no-cook dinners were on both our minds. We swapped tips on entree salads. Here’s more about that shredded salad Marisa mentioned. And here are a few more salad tips (plus a vinaigrette recipe) from Joy.
Here’s the recipe (and video) that helped Joy master making mayonnaise with an immersion blender. (Public service announcement: Always unplug before even thinking about touching those blades!)
