Julia seems like the most wonderful, grounded human. Listening to this podcast makes me want to unplug, cook for my loved ones, and live a engaged & reflective life. Highly recommend!! The interviews with Alison Roman and Samin Nosrat are my faves so far.

Julia’s compassion, intelligence and curiosity fills this podcast, while still being accessible and filled with warmth. Add in amazing guests, cooking tips and guest appearances by Grace - this podcast has it all.
