Weeelll, I advise you to feast your ears on a podcast I recently came across, called Spilled Milk.
It would have made sense for me to write this post on my Foods for Fantasizing page, but since this podcast has personally made my lazy mornings just a bit more vibrant and exciting, I felt that it therefore would fit more nicely within the terms of Life au Cochon (i.e. ways to make your life just a bit better). :)
This entertaining and thoughtful dish of conversation is served once every week or so by Molly Wizenberg, author of one of my all-time favorite books titled A Homemade Life (which I briefly touched on in a previous Life au Cochon post), and Matthew Amster-Burton, author of the acclaimed Hungry Monkey: A Food-Loving Father's Quest to Raise an Adventurous Eater, who accompanies Molly on the air as an amusing complement to her intellectually stimulating reflections on certain foods...
These two cuisine devotees will leave you in a mindset of fireworks about food that people would usually ignore and leave unappreciated. They will allow you to unearth the things you may have forgotten to admire at every encounter, or within every memory you may have visited.
With their lovable sense of humor that wakes you up like a steaming cup of coffee served in the warm atmosphere of a Seattle coffee shop, perfectly blended with the syrups and spices of an utterly contagious passion for cooking, trying new and familiar foods and everything else under the Sun, you cannot help but feel your inner chef coming alive, energized and readier than ever to tackle all cuisine-related obstacles that might come your way...and of course, readier than ever to devour every opportunity of a delicious chocolate cake or piece of fudge that arrives along the way. :)
So pour yourself a cup of green tea (or coffee, if you wish to become highly stimulated even before listening to the podcast!), sit down in your comfiest chair, and take a listen to Spilled Milk, where two voices will simply urge you to dive into the pleasure and experience food the way a skydiver leaps into their daring yet exhilarating journey!
