154: Bluefish, Aprons, Iced Coffee

realfoodfakefood

We read an interesting and disturbing story in the New York Post which was basically highlights from the excellent book, Real Food, Fake Food. Be warned though if you do read it you may never enjoy sushi again.

We extoll the virtues of a favorite local and strong-tasting fish, bluefish.

For two women who spend so much time in the kitchen, we both have trouble wearing an apron to protect our clothes from spatters, but Marisa recently discovered an apron she wants to wear all the time.

We talk about the pleasures of ice coffee, at home and from shops around Philly.

And at the market this week, we are grabbing all the corn.

Episode 103: No Cook Meals, Carbs and Your Health, Madame Fromage

Our guest, Tenaya Darlington aka Madame Fromage
Our guest, Tenaya Darlington aka Madame Fromage

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.

Next we tackled no cook meals. Listen for all the great tips, but a couple recipes we mentioned were this one for Chilled Cucumber and Avocado Soup and this one for Veggie Nori Rolls.

With several recent studies on the topic of carbs and health in the news, we shared our approaches to eating the starchy stuff. It turns out we both love one particular low carb recipe–Green Chicken from Nom Nom Paleo.

This conversation may have backfired: just talking about it made us hungry for our favorite breads (from High Street on Market) and pasta (from Zeppoli restaurant).

Our interview this week features Tenaya Darlington, whose blog Madame Fromage is a cheese-lover’s dream. If you enjoy what she had to say us, buy her first book, Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese, and pre-order her second, The Modern Cocktailer.
