A great one!

This podcast is my ray of sunshine at the end of the week to unwind. Jaymee is a great host and so knowledgeable and relatable with the guests on the pod. Huge fan!

More relatable chefs please!

Seems like every episode is now about TOC or other competition cooking show. I miss the roots of Food Network where we learned how to cook! Would love some guests that are more relatable and not just out to compete in food game shows. Also expand and get guests that travel and explore other cuisines and cultures. I used to love this podcast but it’s getting a little worn .

SoCal Food Fan ,

TGIF !!
