Great multifaceted show, cooking and humanity
My partner is about to have our first child. Her favorite food during pregnancy has been Bahn Mi (which she had only had a few times before pregnancy). Do you have a favorite protein for your Bahn Mi (pork, meatballs, beef, etc?)
Anyday Microwave recipes please?!?!?
Love the show, listen to it on my daily walk and routinely find myself laughing alongside Dave, Chris, and Isaac.
I just got the starter set of Anyday bowls and love them. Are there any places that you guys go to for recipes beyond the cards that they provide with the set? Is there a cookbook or resource that you have found helpful that might have some good generally applied principles or best practices when it comes to microwave cooking? Love any help you could provide and keep up the good content!
A Delightfully Irreverent Spin on Food & Culture
One of my favorite podcasts! Love the representation of cultures and cuisines. The hosts go to great lengths to have a broad range of guests and discussions. As the mom of a child who was born in Africa and aspires to be a chef, the representation of food and chefs in America as more than just a monolithic thing or group is awesome. My son has seen Dave on TV and is a big fan. But my son is still learning English and soaking up everything he hears from people he deems “cool,” I can’t let him listen with me since one member of the cast can’t seem to stop swearing (ahem, Dave). Nonetheless, this podcast deserves all the stars out there. Can’t recommend it enough.
