Food history is our history, there is no untangling the two. Industrialized food processing may be whittling away at our appreciation of how deeply certain foods are rooted in our families and culture but not everyone forgets. There are people who still lovingly employ age-old methods of food cultivation.
In this episode, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two authors and chefs who translated their life journeys into recipes and their recipes into cookbooks.
Katie Quinn’s hands-on approach has given rise to the revered tradition of fermentation. She shares highlights from her food adventures as documented in her book, Cheese, Wine, and Bread: Discovering the Magic of Fermentation in England, Italy, and France.
And, Mandy Lee shares her experience of fusing foods from the East and West while living in a polarized, authoritarian culture from her personal story inspired cookbook, The Art of Escapism Cooking: A Survival Story, with Intensely Good Flavors.
Katie Quinn is a video creator, podcast host, and cookbook author. She thinks there is a story to be told everywhere and that food connects people. Every week she posts food and travel videos to her YouTube channel, QKatie, which has over 5 million views and 38,600 subscribers. Her slogan (and podcast title) is Keep It Quirky because she thinks life, both in the kitchen and out of it, is more enjoyable if you don’t take yourself too seriously.
