Description

From Samin Nosrat (chef and author of the cookbook Salt Fat Acid Heat) and Hrishikesh Hirway (creator and host of the podcast Song Exploder), Home Cooking is a mini-series to help you figure out what to cook—and keep you company—during the quarantine. If you need help or just want some creative inspiration for your kitchen, we’ve got you covered. Do you have a quarantine cooking question, story, or anxiety you want to share with us? Send a voice memo to us at alittlehomecooking@gmail.com, or call us at 201-241-COOK.

We’re wrapping up this pandemic year and our pandemic podcast in a carefully-sealed bag, so as not to let the flavors intermingle with other flavors in your podcast cookie tin. For our cookie-themed episode, we‘ve got chocolate chip cookies, no-bake cookies, and smart cookie Helen Zaltzman (@HelenZaltzman) tells us about her gingerbread creations. Plus, a Chef Detective mystery about a lost family favorite from an out-of-print magazine. For recipes, transcripts, and more, visit homecooking.show/14.
Happy Thanksgiving! Our special family guests this week include Samin’s younger brothers Pasha & Bahador, Hrishi’s dad Dr Sumesh Hirway, and Hrishi’s niece Asha. Plus, the wonderful Tracy Clayton (@brokeymcpoverty) tells us about the Thanksgiving opinion that could get her excommunicated from her old Kentucky home. This episode is dedicated to Kanta Hirway, Hrishi’s mom. Without her incredible home cooking and mischievous sense of humor, this podcast (and Hrishi) would have never been. Her Thanksgiving mango pie was the connection point for Samin and Hrishi’s first collaboration, and we hope you’ll try making it in her honor. Words cannot express how much she will be missed, but she expressed her love through food, anyway—so eat well and take care of each other For recipes, resources, and more, visit homecooking.show/episodes/13.
According to our callers, a big part of Thanksgiving seems to be making food for your loved ones that you only kind of like yourself. But can we make these dishes a little better for the people cooking them?! We’re gonna try. Plus, Demi Adejuyigbe (@electrolemon), tells about his quarantine baking adventures. For recipes, transcripts, and more, visit homecooking.show/12.
Dr. Sumesh Uncle Hirway, Ph.D (@sumeshhirway) is back with more tips, Jen Feltham of Sonoratown (@sonoratownla) teaches us a tortilla trick, and Samin & Hrishi talk treats. For recipes, resources, and a transcript of this episode, visit homecooking.show/11.
We’re joined by actor Jason Mantzoukas, one of our favorite people. He’s a novice in the kitchen who needs a little help getting comfortable with some cooking basics. Plus, we call up Hrishi’s dad, a.k.a. Sumesh Uncle the Food Scientist, for some information on his newest favorite gadget: an air fryer.
We’re back for a third batch of episodes! Samin and Hrishi help a listener who is over-encumbered by a number of cucumbers, and Chef Detective fills in the missing pieces from a family recipe for pull-apart bread. For recipes, resources, and a transcript of this episode, visit homecooking.show/9.
What is kohlrabi and what do we do with it? Plus, Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski (@antoni) talks to us about pierogis, and more! For recipes, resources, and a transcript, visit homecooking.show/8.
Samin and Hrishi brainstorm snack ideas for hiking, but sometimes wander off the trail, and author Rachel Khong (@rrrrrrrachelkhong) breaks down her quest to find the best way to cook rice—without a rice cooker. For recipes, resources, and transcripts, visit homecooking.show/7.
The wonderful Nadiya Hussain (@nadiyajhussain), Great British Bake-Off winner and host of Netflix’s “Nadiya’s Time to Eat,” joins us to tell us about her family’s chicken korma recipe. Samin melts Hrishi’s dreams of starting an ice cream parlor, and Hrishi mortifies Samin with a request for a new kind of email submission. For recipes and resources, go to homecooking.show/6.
We’re back! The pandemic has extended its run, so we have, too! But now, it’s hot out and everyone’s sweaty and no one wants to turn on their ovens. That’s okay, we have ideas. Plus, the wonderful Sam Sanders (@samsanders) joins us to tell us about his impressive Struggle Frittata, and more. For recipes and resources, visit homecooking.show/5.
We’re closing out our miniseries with happy bellies, full hearts, and international treasure Yo-Yo Ma (@YoYo_Ma). In this episode, we talk about comfort, memories, the act of cooking as an act of love, and the art of wrapping food inside other food. For ideas, recipes, resources, and more, visit homecooking.show.
There’s so much sardine advice packed into this episode. Plus, Pulitzer Prize-winning cultural critic Wesley Morris (@wesley_morris) tells us about the crumb cake he’s already made twice during quarantine, and Hrishi’s dad, a food scientist, weighs in on food safety. For ideas, recipes, resources, and more, visit homecooking.show.
White flour is in short supply, so what should you do when you want to bake? We’re joined by pastry wizard Stella Parks (@bravetart) to help us answer your questions, and comedian W. Kamau Bell (@wkamaubell) tells us about the magic of two-ingredient pancakes – an easy breakfast that his daughters love. Visit homecooking.show for a complete list of foods discussed in the episode, as well as cooking ideas and resources! 
Quarantine cooking is no joke—or is it? In our inaugural episode, Hrishi makes one too many puns, Samin answers the eternal bean question (to soak or not to soak), and Josh Malina (@JoshMalina) schools us in the art of the latke. Visit homecooking.show for a complete list of foods discussed in the episode, as well as cooking resources and a downloadable dancing can!

My mom made the best homemade tortillas. MEMORIES! But I wish you could see how New Mexicans eat jalapeños and anything spicy 😂 We love the heat! Oh, and we call them Huevos Rancheros. I wonder if they are any different at all 🤔

Similarly, many whole grains are processed in a way to be more palatable and less healthful. For example, instant whole-grain oats are as unhealthy as overly processed white bread in that they quickly spike sugar levels in the bloodstream once consumed, promoting insulin-resistance, obesity and diabetes, according to research by David Ludwig at Harvard University.
