Mcweebs ,

Non-Dairy with Nico/Natalie! THANK YOU!

Great episode.. yes, Nico is our son, so we love anything he and Natalie do.. but I also suffer from Dairy issues.. funny enough, American Dairy products especially.. I can do great with “Buffalo Mozzarella”, real Parmesan, Irish Butter.. but these additional substitutes on this episode are gonna give me so many ideas to try! Super helpful and fun to listen to episode!

Lrotto ,

So glad Bon Appétit is back!

I was an avid listener of Food People by Bon Appétit, and love this comeback show with Chris Morocco! It’s fun, conversational and educational. I love hearing from multiple team members at Bon Appétit too. It gives me inspiration and motivation to try things out in my own kitchen.

Cursing? Seriously?
