Tieghan Gerard (@halfbakedharvest) is one of the biggest food bloggers on the planet, with a website that gets hundreds of thousands of views and features some of the most delicious recipes (and amazing photos) around, and a mega-successful debut cookbook, Half Baked Harvest Cookbook: Recipes from My Barn in the Mountains.
In this episode, get to the know the woman behind the food, as Tieghan candidly shares her lifelong struggle with anxiety (and how she deals with it now), her path to a successful career in food, her family’s trip to the South Korea Winter Olympics to support her brother, Red Gerard (the first gold medalist of the games!), and much, much more. For more from Tieghan, check out halfbakedharvest.com.
This podcast is brought to you by Four Sigmatic. I’m extremely picky about the food I consume, and after doing a huge amount of research on mushrooms, I’ve become not only a fan but an evangelist. I don’t drink caffeine, so I use mushrooms to help me wake up in the morning (cordyceps), focus in the afternoon (lion’s mane), and calm down in the evening (reishi). I also use the chaga to bolster my immune system on trips (either cross-country or just on the arguably-more-disgusting NYC subway). This stuff REALLY works, and now I rarely go a day without it.
