I love this so much

Abby and Jen do a fantastic job describing the foods they try.

Every interview, and every taste test is somehow comedic in some way, and as a teen, comedy is all for me.

Great job, love you guys!

Like a perfect dinner out with friends

Listening to Amused Bouche, I feel like Jen and Abby are at my kitchen table. They are quick and funny and charming as heck. This podcast is personified comfort food and a celebration of Charlotte’s food scene all in one. Tune in for the Yelp review re-enactments, stay for the interviews with the Queen City’s culinary movers and shakers.
