A weekly show from Food52's new podcast network, featuring all the uncut gems from the weekly "Genius Recipes" column and video series. Host Kristen Miglore speaks to the geniuses behind iconic recipes, and uncovers the recipes that changed the way we cook.
This Marinade Brings Vegetables to Life
Cookbook author, food activist, and chef Bryant Terry joins lifelong Genius hunter Kristen Miglore this week to discuss Bryant's Atlanta (the TV show, not the city)-inspired lemon-pepper marinade, the musical pairings in Vegetable Kingdom, the technique of blanching then roasting vegetables, and how a silky tofu marinade-slash-sauce will breathe new life into any and all vegetables you may have forgotten in the crisper drawer.
Oops! Dreamy-Smooth Hummus
Cookbook author, recipe developer, podcaster, and salad-slinger Hetty McKinnon joins host Kristen Miglore to talk aquafaba magic, Hetty's secret double life in Sydney, and why it took a 9000-mile journey away to get closer to home.
"Gone For A Run—Not to Palestine"
Falastin co-authors (and decade-long collaborators) Sami Tamimi and Tara Wigley join host Kristen Miglore to discuss what it was like for Sami to rediscover and reimagine foods of his childhood, why Tara is a pathological quadruple-batcher, and the genius, un-mess-upable red shakshuka from their book.
The Perfect Biscuit
Chef, author, and TV personality Carla Hall joins host Kristen Miglore to talk abut the genius buttermilk biscuits she's spent decades perfecting.
Life After Bon Appétit
Priya Krishna is not only a food writer, cookbook author, and regular contributor for the New York Times, Bon Appétit, and others—she's also the daughter we want to be when we grow up. Priya joins host Kristen Miglore to discuss what it was like writing a cookbook with her mom, Ritu, what Seth's baking next, and a brilliant, five-minute shortcut spicy-bright pickle that will electrify everything from dal to quesadillas.
How to Turn Corn Into Butter
Chef and entrepreneur Whitney Wright joins host Kristen Miglore to discuss the corn butter (yes, as in butter made from corn) recipe she learned while working at Per Se, what it was like working with Ruth Reichl, and how her relationship to food has changed now that she's no longer cooking on the line.

My favorite genius recipe is from Patricia Wells, “fake frites”. Exacting golden goodness every time. Thanks Food52!
