I've talked before about my love of podcasts. Whether I'm getting ready in the morning, on a long road trip, working out, or sneaking one in the office---I can't stop listening to podcasts. I like music but it just doesn't capture enough of my attention like these little interesting downloads. Last time I talked about true crime...and if there's one thing I love more than a good mystery it's definitely food! Here's 4 podcasts for true foodies or even just the foodie in you!
1. Spilled Milk
Spilled Milk is a quirky little show hosted by Matthew Amster-Burton and Molly Wizenberg where they literally pick a food topic every episode and see how far they can run with it. These 20 minute nugget episodes are the perfect little doses of food knowledge. Oh yea, they are also quite hilarious! Here are a few episodes to snack on---Hot Sauce, Birthday Cake, and Waffles.
2. Go Fork Yourself with Andrew Zimmern
This was probably the first food podcast I started listening to that got me hooked. Honestly, I've never been a fan of Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods, but you guys he's so much more than that! His food, restaurant, and cultural knowledge is fascinating. Every episode Zimmern and his co-host Molly explore a food topic or interview a big name in the food world. Start with these---Molly's Honeymoon, Pumpkin Spice Podcast, and Trisha Yearwood.
3. A Taste of The Past
Ok--this podcasts is only for true foodies and probably history nerds. Host Linda Pelaccio is a culinary historian and interviews authors, scholars,and other culinary chroniclers about a given topic each week. If you want the inside scoop on Cuban Cuisine, The Untold Story of Ramen, The Evolving Cuisine of Israel, and SO much more check this out!
4. The Alton Browncast
I have an apology I need to make to Alton Brown (I'm sure he'll read this). Alton, I'm so sorry I never gave you a chance all these years because I thought your show Good Eats bored me to tears. BUT you are really cool and this podcast proves it. Every episode he interviews names in the culinary scene such as Cutthroat Kitchen Team and Jeff Mauro.
I'd love to hear your suggestions!
