    Doing Yoga While Pregnant Saved My Sanity, with Jessica Weiss of Wild Heart Yoga

    Doing Yoga While Pregnant Saved My Sanity, with Jessica Weiss of Wild Heart Yoga

    In this episode, my all-time favorite yoga teacher Jessica Weiss tells us how she handled maternity leave and new parenthood as a creative freelancer. We also talk about her prenatal yoga series, which has been an absolutely life saver for me during my pregnancy!!
    My favorite take away from this conversation is: TAKE YOUR TIME. That's a mantra to remember -- especially as a new mom -- even when life is a whirlwind around you and you feel the pressure to resume your career ASAP.
    To see Jess's yoga classes -- from online livestreams to on-demand videos, in addition to the prenatal course -- visit https://www.wild-heart-yoga.com and follow her on Instagram at jessweissyoga.

    Putting My Dad In The Hotseat

    Putting My Dad In The Hotseat

    I’ve wanted to have this person on for years. Spoiler: it’s my dad. But I’m not just having him on because he’s my dad, I invited him to be a guest because he has inspired me and my path in life -- has inspired me, and inspires me to this day!
    There are endless facets to his enjoyment and dedeication to his chosen work, but also for living his passions, for connecting with other humans, and adding positivity to the world. If you’d be even 5% as inspired by him as I am, this episode is a worthwhile listen. I hope you enjoy this DADCAST! ;)

    This author’s dream illustrator, Jessie Kanelos Weiner

    This author’s dream illustrator, Jessie Kanelos Weiner

    Jessie Kanelos Weiner is an author and illustrator -- and she was the illustrator for my book, which publishes today, "Cheese, Wine, and Bread!" Her illustrations are absolutely incredible, and I'm excited to have her on the show.
    In this episode, we talk about how she landed on illustration as an art form, her side hustles, and telling stories with her paintbrush. She says, ""The work that speaks most to people is personal work," and I adore the way she defines keeping it quirky: Having the courage to by yourself. YES!
    Jessie was born in America, but has lived in France for some time now. She has worked as a food stylist in Paris and New York, and was a costume designer (which led her to picking up watercolor). Now, she is known and highly regarded in the industry for her detailed, whimsical, and instantly recognizable style.
     
    Some of her books are “Paris In Stride," and "Edible Paradise."  Her work explores gastronomy, travel, lifestyle, architecture, and pop culture. You may have seen her illustrations in Vogue, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, among many others.

    Teaching Normal People about Wine, with Caroline Conner

    Teaching Normal People about Wine, with Caroline Conner

    Caroline Conner is an American entrepreneur living in Lyon, France. She is the woman behind Wine Dine Caroline — a company all about enjoying wine and learning about it in the most accessible way. She’s just the kind of wine lover I want to have as a friend because she doesn’t stand for snobbery, but her knowledge of wine — everything from the science specifics to historical background — is incredible. She has her WSET diploma, over 12 years of experience in the industry, and is currently pursuing her master of wine.
    In this episode, we talk about why she’s focused her wine knowledge and educating us normal people ;) and why she loves living in Lyon, France. In the latter part of the show, I got a little nerdy with her, asking about some specifics of how Italy’s wines differ from France’s wine. (I loved her breakdown of Champagne versus Prosecco!) All that and much more, in this episode!

    This is Why Puglia, Italy is So Special, with Anna Maggio

    This is Why Puglia, Italy is So Special, with Anna Maggio

    Anna Maggio is the author of the cookbook "Under the Olive Tree: Memories and Flavours of Puglia." (Gourmand World Book award Winner 2020!) Anna is an Italian-born and bred woman who has lived in London since her early twenties, but has been a proud proponent of Puglia, the southern Italian region when she spent her childhood.
    In this episode, I talk with Anna about some of the ingredients and recipes in her cookbook -- all of which are very simple and accessible -- and we talk about the concept of "cucina povera." We delve into a bit of the history of the Puglia region, the differences between southern Italy and northern Italy, and her personal experiences in both places...
    "It set me up to fight for survival," says Anna about moving from southern Italy to the big northern Italian city of Milan, where she was "treated like an immigrant." We also talk about her move to London, her career in the arts, and how she began her food tours and writing this book, a beautiful love letter to her childhood home.
    Her book helped me discover more about the region of Puglia, which I'm now calling home! She made me appreciate this area in new ways, and added new staple recipes to my kitchen rolodex.

    She’s a Professional Pasta Eater (with Sophie Minchilli)

    She’s a Professional Pasta Eater (with Sophie Minchilli)

    Hi everyone! I start this episode with some big news: I've moved to Italy! And in the spirit of that move, I'd like to introduce you to someone who knows Italy like the back of her hand, adores it, and will make you want to eat pasta straight away.
    Sophie Minchilli was raised in Rome, Italy, to an Italian father and American mother (you may know of her mom -- author Elizabeth Minchilli, @eminchilli) and she is passionate about sharing Italian culture. In this conversation, we have a fun, nuanced chat about Italy -- we talk about the huge regional differences in Italy, making friends with the older generation here, and some of her favorite dishes from the part of Italy where I'm living (Puglia).
    Sophie and Elizabeth team up to do food tours all around Italy! - you can find more information here: https://www.elizabethminchilli.com/week-in-italy/
