food fumble hotline podcast

Editor’s Note: With school online due to COVID-19 and social distancing measures being implemented across the country, things will sound a bit different here at the Emerald Podcast Network as we navigate recording from separate physical spaces. We’ve got limited recording technology, so join us as we figure this out.

Em and Jamie talk at length about the versatility of cinnamon, tackle the one way to make fried rice, and figure out what exactly British pudding is. They warn against dining in at restaurants and offer social distance friendly alternatives. Jamie rants again, this time about weighing ingredients, while Em sings praises for an unexpected place for good Korean food.

Here are the resources they discuss in this episode:
