    Mulberry Me Alive (with Dr. Sumesh Uncle Hirway)

    It’s Thanksgiving, and so, like giblets and your racist aunt, this is the only time this year that you’ll have to deal with us. Welcome to the first (and possibly only) installment of our chill era, featuring our favorite retired food scientist, Dr. Sumesh Uncle Hirway.

    Happy Tangsgiving! (with Camila Cabello)

    Happy Tangsgiving! (with Camila Cabello)

    We’re back for a special episode of the podcast, and we’re getting questions and giving thanks as we get ready for the high holy day of home kitchens. We got a special surprise in the form of a question from international pop superstar Camila Cabello! Also, we finally made shirts that say “Shrimp J*nga Forever!” and you can get one at homecooking.show/shrimpjenga.

    You can listen to Hrishi’s new song here, and watch his TED Talk here,

    Starch Nemesis (with Waffles & Mochi)

    Starch Nemesis (with Waffles & Mochi)

    Hello again! We’ve climbed out of our cave and here we are, blinking bewilderedly in the light of the bright sun, trying to remember how to make this podcast. Join us as we slice up a veritable fruit salad of questions, including one about raisins from our new puppet friends Waffles & Mochi. They’re the titular characters of the new Netflix kids show that just came out. Samin is in the show, too, so you should go watch it as soon as you’re done listening to this!

    Bittersweet (with Helen Zaltzman)

    Bittersweet (with Helen Zaltzman)

    We’re wrapping up this pandemic year and our pandemic podcast in a carefully-sealed bag, so as not to let the flavors intermingle with other flavors in your podcast cookie tin. For our cookie-themed episode, we‘ve got chocolate chip cookies, no-bake cookies, and smart cookie Helen Zaltzman (@HelenZaltzman) tells us about her gingerbread creations. Plus, a Chef Detective mystery about a lost family favorite from an out-of-print magazine.

    Thanksgiving, Part 2: Umami and Me (with Tracy Clayton and our families)

    Thanksgiving, Part 2: Umami and Me (with Tracy Clayton and our families)

    Happy Thanksgiving! Our special family guests this week include Samin’s younger brothers Pasha & Bahador, Hrishi’s dad Dr Sumesh Hirway, and Hrishi’s niece Asha. Plus, the wonderful Tracy Clayton (@brokeymcpoverty) tells us about the Thanksgiving opinion that could get her excommunicated from her old Kentucky home.

    This episode is dedicated to Kanta Hirway, Hrishi’s mom. Without her incredible home cooking and mischievous sense of humor, this podcast (and Hrishi) would have never been. Her Thanksgiving mango pie was the connection point for Samin and Hrishi’s first collaboration, and we hope you’ll try making it in her honor. Words cannot express how much she will be missed, but she expressed her love through food, anyway—so eat well and take care of each other

    Thanksgiving, Part 1: Sage Wisdom (with Demi Adejuyigbe)

    Thanksgiving, Part 1: Sage Wisdom (with Demi Adejuyigbe)

    According to our callers, a big part of Thanksgiving seems to be making food for your loved ones that you only kind of like yourself. But can we make these dishes a little better for the people cooking them?! We’re gonna try. Plus, Demi Adejuyigbe (@electrolemon), tells about his quarantine baking adventures.

My Saviours

I just discovered this podcast last week and I'm slowly making my way through the episodes because I don't want it to ever end! They're like my older brother and sister and I love them so much and have no idea how I'm going to cope without having them in my life everyday. I ADORE Samin's voice and laughter and Hrishi's GOD-AWFUL jokes. PLEASE ADOPT ME!
