Love this podcast so much

I’ve learned so much about cooking by listening to them gem of a podcast. Chris Kimball for president!

gmb777 ,

1001 bites episode.

The listener tip had me replaying to be sure I had actually heard what I did! No, Robin, your butter warming technique did not seem obvious to me! 😂😂🤣🤢🤢🤢 I think I will stick with the microwave or hot glass method. “Did you taste Robin’s Poundcake? It had a fishy aftertaste. .” Definitely a good laugh with this tip.

It was awesome until...

It renews my faith in humanity that I’m not the only one who found the butter-thighs listener tip disgusting enough to unsubscribe. If he was being punked, he fell for it. If she was serious, he... ran that creepy suggestion? Ick. Anyways, otherwise an ok and sometimes awesome podcast, and although I love love love any time Sarah Moulton is on, a little Christopher Kimball goes a long way, and I’m moving on.
