“I don’t miss meat. I just like eating really good food.” This episode, we join author and photographer husband and wife duo Jeanine Donofrio and Jack Matthews for a behind the scenes on their new cookbook, Love & Lemons. We talk everything from eating lots of vegetables to savory mushrooms to kitchen improv -- plus, a spring recipe of our own that proves tacos can be more than simply Mexican flavors.

“The” chef Rick Bayless joins us on a journey to explore Mexican cuisine. From huevos rancheros tacos to roasted tomatillo salsa, we discuss authentic flavors, Baja California, his newest (secret) restaurant project, and what it’s like to compete on a cooking show. Plus, fun tips like how to regulate the heat of your salsa and make impressive giant flames. It’s a legit fiesta.

The best food inspirations (foodspirations?) can come from travel, but what about in your very own city? In this episode we explore one of the decade’s hottest American food trends, ramen, first at a restaurant and then in our very own kitchen. And we create our own quick vegetarian version just for the podcast!
