Global Cooking for Kids with Rowena Scherer
2d ago
Global Cooking for Kids with Rowena Scherer
I think most of us can agree we want to raise good eaters- and hopefully, kids who want to get in the kitchen and cook, too. Today’s guest is all about bringing kids in the kitchen, exploring global cuisines and introducing kids to new flavors and cultures.  Rowena Scherer grew up in Malaysia and her fondest memories are from when she cooked in the kitchen with her family. Years later, after working on Wall Street and living all over the world, she decided she wanted to create the same lasting memories with her children. She attended the French Culinary Institute, began to source hard-to-find non-perishable ingredients that highlighted her cherished foods, and started eat2explore, an explorer box filled with authentic recipes, activities, and collectibles that offered a worldwide cultural education through the exploration of food. In today’s episode we talk about Rowena’s story of getting started cooking with her own mom, to her inspiration to teach her kids to cook- and what they cook now as young adults- how to get your kids in the kitchen from an early age, the importance of introducing kids to global cuisine and how cooking can bring us together as a family.  As a quick note, we did have some audio issues on and off during this episode, I unfortunately had some internet connection issues so we had some lag on on our audio, I did my best to edit- but if we occasionally talk over each other or there’s a funny sound here or there, that’s what happened- I think our conversation is well worth the occasional audio mishap!

Nourishing Asian Cooking with Sophia Nguyen Eng
Asian cuisines like Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and others have rich culinary traditions with incredible depth of flavor that takes someone dedicated to learning the beautiful complexity of Asian ingredients to truly create incredible Asian meals- which is why I am so thrilled to welcome this week's guest, Sophia Nguyen Eng on the podcast to share her experience cooking traditional Asian cuisine (from a real food perspective). Growing up in a Vietnamese family, Sophia noticed Asian food in the United States often relied heavily on processed ingredients containing artificial flavors and preservatives. She was determined to recreate the flavorful recipes she loved while making them healthier. The recipes she shares explore the proper preparation of grains, dairy, meats, and ferments, emphasizing fresh ingredients and traditional cooking methods while focusing on flavor, food quality, ingredient sourcing, seasonality, and eating nose-to-tail. In this week’s episode, we’re talking all things Asian cooking and her new book- the Nourishing Asian Kitchen. .

Holiday Baking Hacks with Lex Daddio of Daddio's Kitchen
It's holiday baking time, and as many of you know- baking is not my forte. I can make a mean Christmas cookie or banana chocolate chip muffins, and I love making pizza dough- but the science around baking (and the accuracy and patience required) is not where I shine. But it IS where today's guest, Lex Daddio of Daddio's kitchen does! Lex Daddio creates twists on classic baking recipes from her home kitchen as one half of Daddio's Kitchen with her husband Thomas (and her three little boys running under foot). Lex's tried and true baked goods are loved far and wide by her followers on Instagram and her blog readers, and soon by her patrons at her new food trailer, Cream + Sugar Baking in Richmond, VA. I am so excited to re-introduce guests on the podcast, and today we are talking all things baking- holiday baking hacks, tips for making your baked goods come out the way you want them too, tips for making baking with kids enjoyable and less-stressed, and so much more!
