    Finding Home with Fanny Singer

    Finding Home with Fanny Singer

    Fanny Singer eats a green salad every day. Her ritual begins with the washing of lettuce: rinsing in cold water, a few times, then scattering across a tea towel and rolling said towel like biscuit dough into a cinnamon roll. The cinnamon roll, or ‘lettuce baby’ as it’s known in the Singer/Waters kitchen, is then tucked into the fridge until it’s time to eat. It’s these little windows of detail - gentle guidance mixed with whimsy - that Fanny shares in her recent memoir, Always Home. Fanny is a writer, art critic, curator, editor and co-founder of the design brand Permanent Collection, and daughter of the chef, educator and organic farming champion Alice Waters. Singer spent over a decade studying and living in England, but has recently returned home to Northern California. We explore the concept of home in this episode, through travel, words, memory, our senses, and of course salad and soup. And we’ll discover how it feels to find home, wherever you go, on this episode of The Food Podcast.

    How To Quarantine By Mistake, with Aimée Wimbush-Bourque

    How To Quarantine By Mistake, with Aimée Wimbush-Bourque

    Aimée Wimbush-Bourque posted a photo last year on Instagram featuring vegetable scraps sprouting from water: garlic cloves, half an onion, the tops of swiss chard and green onions, growing tall, stretching towards the light. It’s a glorious sight - kitchen cast-offs, finding new life. It’s her most popular image, she says, by far.

    Aimée is a cookbook author and creator of the blog, Simple Bites. She is also a champion for kids in the kitchen, zero waste living, urban homesteading, and all things colourful. Her clothes are colourful, her food is colourful, even her sprouting table scraps are colourful. Perhaps this love is a reaction to growing up off-grid in the Yukon, where the sun only shone for a few hours each day during the winter months. Maybe it’s her love of the wild outdoors and a desire to pull nature inside. I think it’s her unwavering optimism, for a life where we can all learn to cook, where life can be spent connecting with nature, and vegetable scraps can grow into beautiful, colourful food.

    When I spoke with Aimée, I didn’t realize we were creating an episode to air during a pandemic. But here we are, and we couldn’t be in better hands. Anyone who learned to meal plan, ferment food, and run a market stall as a young kid, all without electricity, running water or refrigeration, is the person we want at our side right now. This is Aimée. Yes, it's all about celebrating a lot with less, gathering together and perhaps taking our food outside, if we can, today on The Food Podcast.

    Side Dishes with Lindsay Cameron Wilson - Live from The Atlantic Podcast Summit

    Side Dishes with Lindsay Cameron Wilson - Live from The Atlantic Podcast Summit

    Welcome to an episode of The Food Podcast’s Side Dishes, where we explore the Flavours of Home. This one is coming to you live from the Atlantic Podcast Summit in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This episode is born from a live workshop, where host Lindsay Cameron Wilson and Village Sound Studio producers Luke Batiot and Jason MacIssac teach the audience how to produce an episode from start to finish. The episode explores the flavour of Lindsay’s home, shared through the lens of an old typewriter, an anniversary and a little sheep barn. It’s filled with food, love, and, a nod to scrunchies and Kylie Minogue...  Thanks for listening!

It’s this last part - love and activism, and understanding how the two need each other, that’s what this episode is all about. And, her mother’s pea soup. It has nourished Aube, it has nourished me, and we hope it will nourish you, on this episode of The Food Podcast.

    Aran Goyoaga's Kitchen Playlist

    Aran Goyoaga's Kitchen Playlist

    Aran Goyoaga, a cookbook author, photographer and stylist, has a playlist on Spotify that’s 113 hours long. She calls the playlist Rain. Rain is fitting. Aran lives in Seattle, a city that’s grey, melancholy. But great photographers, and Bob Marley, know that in the darkness there must come out to light. This theme resonates throughout Aran’s work, from her photography, to her food, to her music. In this episode, we wanted to capture the sound of Aran’s kitchen, the flavour and the feel. So we go inside her playlist and through her music, Aran shares her food story.

    Cannelle et Vanille is Aran’s second book.
