Home Cooking

Subscribers looking for culinary companionship during COVID-19 isolation delighted in Home Cooking. After a brief hiatus, the award-winning podcast is back with new recipes and jokes to spice up your kitchen. Readers who have yet to tune in will want to check it out. As Episode 15 alludes to, the show is as good as finding extra French fries in the bottom of the bag ... so, really, really good. Launched in March 2020 amidst COVID-19 shutdowns, Home Cooking provides a tasty silver lining, helping listeners "figure out what to cook (and keep[ing] you company) during the quarantine." Samin Nosrat (writer and chef) and Hrishikesh Hirway (maker of music and podcasts) co-host the show, which dedicates a significant portion of its content to answering listeners' questions. And Nosrat, the James Beard Award-winning author of the New York Times Bestseller Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, is more than qualified to provide expert advice. While the clever episode titles lure listeners in (for example, "Kohlrabi: Turnip for What?" and "Cod Save America"), the recipes and tips keep audiences enchanted. Those new to the cooking scene may also enjoy some of the pair's recommendations on the Resources page. Here, readers will find advice on everything from cookbooks to Creole mustard. Readers can tune in to Home Cooking at the link above or on a preferred listening platform (all available platforms are linked on the site's Subscribe page). Though, it is worth noting that following the link above allows for the added benefits of accessing episode transcripts and embedded recipes discussed on the show.
