After getting to know my friend Ericka, the queen of entertaining, by discussing her favourite comfort foods, we talk about cooking for a crowd!
We talk about the magic of delegation, go-to snacks for a crowd, wine vs. cocktails, the power of lists, entertaining must-dos and no-gos, the need for home economics in school, how to be an extremely helpful guest, how to relieve cooking legs, the buzz of entertaining adrenaline, the best dinner party layouts, the magic of chaos, and missing our friends.
Reach out to Ericka @grawzer on Instagram if you want some personalized party advice – take her up on this!! Trust me!
In the second episode of Snack Judgment, we get to know my friend Melissa and then dive into our main topic: food tv.
We talk about Guy Fieri (Diners Drive-ins and Dives AND his Grocery Games), Julia Child, Chopped, what improv has to do with food tv and with cooking, young Melissa’s Iron Chef: Battle Pistachio, Great British Bake-Off, gender in Top Chef and Chef’s Table, the magnificent Cristina Martinez of Tacos El Compadre in Philly, David Chang’s Ugly Delicious, Samin Nosrat’s Salt Fat Acid Heat, and stocking up on snacks before watching food tv.
