THE FOOD PODCAST 019 - Wooden Spoons, The Backstory

What's the story behind your favourite wooden spoon? Where did it come from? Is it stained from use? Did you scorch it on the stove? Was it a disciplinary tool? On this episode we talk with Terron Dodd, a cherished wooden spoon carver from Cape Breton, NS. Terron says, "I can make a wooden spoon, but the trees, they do all the work." On this episode we hear about those trees, his process, and how his sister's wedding cake launched his career as a wooden spoon maker. Skye Manson from the podcast My Open Kitchen and radio doc maker Dick Miller also share the story behind their favourite wooden spoons. It's all about hand made beauty, strength and discipline on this episode of The Food Podcast.     Follow Skye on Instagram @skye_manson   Follow The Food Podcast on Instagram    Visit Terron Dodd at http://www.terrondodd.com/   Visit The Food Podcast on Facebook- https://m.facebook.com/thefoodpodcast/

THE FOOD PODCAST 018 - Fathers Of Confederation, a conversation with Grant Lawrence

 

Did you grow up in a place that you didn't appreciate until later in life? A place that your father chose, a place you didn't understand, a place you couldn't wait to escape from, only to find, many years later, that you too love that place, and your father was right all along? Yes me too.

Canada turns 150 on July 1st. To honour this day, Episode 18 celebrates both the east and west coasts of Canada with Grant Lawrence - music journalist, musician, writer and story teller.  Grant shares stories from Desolation Sound, a small inlet on the Coast of British Columbia, a place he once loved, then hated, then loved again. Desolation Sound was home to the K'omoks people before Europeans arrived. It has seen loggers, fishermen, oyster farmers, draft dodgers, hippies, hermits, tourists, Americans, Canadians... all there to basque in the beauty of the place. 

This episode is also a nod to our fathers, those guys who for both Grant and me, on opposite sides of the country, taught us how to love a place through its stories, sounds, smells and tastes. They are our Fathers of Confederation, so to speak. I've never been to Desolation Sound. Canada is just so, very big. But Grant takes us there, sharing the good, the bad and the naked truths of life in Desolation Sound.

THE FOOD PODCAST 017 - Stories from the Kitchen Table with Molly Wizenberg

 

'Stories from the Kitchen Table with Molly Wizenberg' (The Silent Witness)

Molly Wizenberg is a Seattle-based writer, blogger, restaurant owner, podcast co-host, home cook and a story teller. Her stories are real, the kind filled with all the flavours of life. Molly's Instagram profile reads: Orangette / Spilled Milk / A Homemade Life / Delancey / Essex / stuff. On this episode of The Food Podcast we dive into all of that, especially the STUFF. The real stuff. The flavourful stuff. The stuff people don't always want to talk about. Molly spoke to me from her kitchen table, where she writes, shares meals, skypes podcast hosts, sews and does her taxes. Like all kitchen tables, Molly's table is witness to life, to STUFF. This episode explores her stories from her kitchen table, with a little side exploration into other kitchen tables, both past and present. 

 

Many thanks for listening.

THE FOOD PODCAST 016 - Sweet Sixteen

A Joyous Look at Fat, Sugar and Moderation

  Fat, sugar, heart attacks and moderation - not to worry, episode 16 isn't a downer, it's Joyous! This episode stars Joy McCarthy, founder of Joyous Health. She'll share her story from daily afternoon M&M's and chronic sickness to a career as an inspiring holistic nutritionist, writer and best-selling author. We'll also hear from Michelle Book from the Canadian Health Food Association. She'll set us straight on the role sugar is playing in our lives today, and simple steps we can take to avoid it. This is an episode exploring choices, not restrictions. So fill your plate with the good stuff- but pay attention to that plate. Over the years they have grown in size.

THE FOOD PODCAST 015 - LIfe After Gluten

Episode 15 Life After Gluten 

On this episode, our 15th, I talk to Aran Goyoaga of the site www.cannellevanille.com and Paul Graham, author of the memoir In Memory of Bread. Aran is a Basque - American living in Seattle; Paul lives in upstate New York. They've never met. But they have something in common - both learned they could no longer eat gluten, long after their lives were shaped by the stuff. This episodes explores how they have approached life - gluten free. It's all about adversity, tears, triumphs and the making of new food memories on this episode of The Food Podcast. PS - and we dive a little into tinnitus. Sorry if I've over-shared...

THE FOOD PODCAST 014 - Women Who Whiskey

On Episode 13, I went to Apple School. You could say on Episode 14, I go to Whiskey School, but this time personal stories are woven in between the sips. Specifically, from women.

We’ll hear Tracy Cameron's story, from Olympic Medalist to Whiskey Distilling in Nova Scotia at http://caldera.ca/.

 We’ll taste whiskey with Julia Ritz Toffoli, founder of Women who Whiskey, an experimental whiskey group for women with chapters all over the world.- http://www.womenwhowhiskey.club/

But we’ll kick things off with a vignette from the Netflix series The Crown, when Queen Mary writes a letter, early in the morning, while sipping whiskey. I mean WHISKY, because in England, there’s no E. 

I hope you enjoy.

THE FOOD PODCAST 012 - The Pepper Connection

THE FOOD PODCAST 012 - The Pepper Connection

Pepper. It's something I twist (and at one time shook) onto my food several times a day. But rarely have I thought about the peppercorns themselves... until I met Louise and Nigel Biggar of DRØM PEPPER. They call themselves peppermongers.

Yes episode 12 of The Food Podcast is all about pepper. But, as always, we delve into more than just the story of an ingredient. We learn the Biggar's story, and the story of Cambodian peppercorns. We talk about the bittersweet path that Cambodian farmers have taken to revive the peppercorn industry after the Khmer Rouge years. We talk about the Biggar's fresh start in Toronto. We talk about saying YES in life, and the power of personal connections. And, there's a little gelato chat in there too.

We also touch on:

  • salt and pepper shakers - do people still use them? Or are they just cherished just by collectors? Or museums in Spain?
  • Connections with people. Sometimes the simplest things, like pepper, can bring people together
  • Kampot peppercorns - the history and why they're so special
  • The difference between red, black and green peppercorns
  • The Biggars family adventure: quitting jobs, the cure for time deprivation and living minimally in South East Asia and Africa. 
  • Delivering peppercorns on that awesome bicycle!
  • Death In Venice Gelato - Thai basil and strawberry with a twist of pink peppercorn, specifically

 

Hope you enjoy it.

THE FOOD PODCAST 011 - Food Rituals

2017-10-07 18:45:37 UTC 19:44
THE FOOD PODCAST 011 - Food Rituals

Daily ritual is an obsession of mine. I work from home, and when I come across others who do the same, with success, I want to know exactly how they do it: how their daily flow, from food, to sleep, to the time they awake, sparks creativity in their day.

So, for episode 11, I ask three of my favourite ‘work from home’ creatives to share their daily rituals with me.

 

1. Mason Currey, the author of Daily Rituals, shares his secret clothing item that helps his focus.

2. Claire Cameron, also a writer, guns it through the dark, early in morning, then breaks the flow with something her husband makes for her…

3. Andrea Dorfman, animator and filmmaker, sneaks a little skinny dip in before her day begins. I once asked her what she thinks is the difference between routine and ritual. She replied - routine + spirituality = ritual.

 

But what do the academics have to say about ritual? Dr. Martha MacDonald s a folklorist who works as the acting director of the Labrador Institute of Memorial University. Dr. MacDonald explains it all, using traditional Newfoundland ballads, Innu and Inuit food rituals to paint the picture.

Magically, the practice of ritual, regardless of where they take place or where they stem from, explain WHY we, as creatives, need them in our everyday lives.

I hope you enjoy it.
