  • Great podcast with gripping content!

    Love listening to this podcast! I learn so much as the information is so digestible. Would you considering doing a mini series on the origins and history of certain foods? Perhaps an episode per month of a vegetable/fruit in season. Like the history of the tomato - where it came from in the world, how it was brought into todays society, Italian cuisine etc. Would be fascinating!!
