Whether you’re building an organization, pitching your big idea, or harnessing your creative brilliance for social change, we are serving up some self-care sammiches in our first-ever advice cooking show and what might be our kookiest episode yet.

Why are we using the metaphor of a Pittsburgh Sammich, aka. a sandwich with the french fries and coleslaw inbetwixt the bread? Because it’s the PERFECT metaphor for good advice—combining unexpected things together and stacked things just so. The combination is delicious and nutritious! Also, because Momma B & Rebecca love Pittsburgh. Learn more about the wonderous world of the Pittsburgh sammich: https://www.saveur.com/pittsburgh-sandwich-history
