Episode 5 - Ingredients: An Overview

Your new cooking foundation is being built. We’re almost there and getting into the fun stuff…ingredients!


The next piece to this puzzle is learning about ingredients so in this episode we’ll get your started with an overview of the basics and how to approach ingredients. It’s very different from the era when housewives were fascinated with canned foods and making things convenient. The 50’s and 60’s also created the opportunity for talented people like Julia Child to introduce more sophisticated ways of cooking.

In this episode, you’ll learn about how different foods and cooking are now based on mindset, availability of fresh products and flavors. Characteristics of food can be described by appearance, aroma, taste, texture or “mouthfeel” and temperature. We will visit all of those topics and you will find that they are standards and will reappear throughout Season 1.

Join us as we tell you more than you probably want to know about a lot of ingredients and their stories that we love oh, and don’t love so much.

There’s also a new Rants and Raves as we go crazy talking about what we love or DON’T. We even throw in some Tips and Tricks here and there.
