A Recipe For Nourishment: queer food, faith and a honeycomb cheesecake with Jennifer E. Crawford
Today on The Food Podcast, I talk with Jennifer Elizabeth Crawford, a chef, food creative and the host of ‘My Queer Kitchen’ with Xtra Magazine. Jennifer, who identifies as They, has recently moved back to Nova Scotia from Toronto, where they studied political theory and worked as a policy analyst for over a decade. Toronto is also where they struggled with alcoholism and PTSD, it’s where they became sober and where their culinary skills reached artistry levels. And, it’s where they won MasterChefCanada 2019. Today Jennifer is back home in Nova Scotia, living in an old house in the valley, writing a memoir, filming recipe videos with her sweetheart, Logan, and cooking with wild abandon, with dreams of opening a ‘supper and sleep’ culinary outpost on their property. It’s all about learning to heal, day by day, surrounded by pillowy loaves of challah and moon-mist ice cream, on this episode of The Food Podcast. www.thefoodpodcast.com www.jenniferecrawford.com @jennifer.e.crawford @thefoodpodcast @lindsaycameronwilson Mentioned in this episode: -Xtra Magazine Honey Cheesecake -Xtra Magazine Comfort Food Cheezies -The Book of Ruth -McCain’s Deep ‘n Delicious Cake -The Center for Addiction and Mental Health -Final episode of MasterChef 2019

How To Quarantine By Mistake, with Aimée Wimbush-Bourque
Aimée Wimbush-Bourque posted a photo last year on Instagram featuring vegetable scraps sprouting from water: garlic cloves, half an onion, the tops of swiss chard and green onions, growing tall, stretching towards the light. It’s a glorious sight - kitchen cast-offs, finding new life. It’s her most popular image, she says, by far. Aimée is a cookbook author and creator of the blog, Simple Bites. She is also a champion for kids in the kitchen, zero waste living, urban homesteading, and all things colourful. Her clothes are colourful, her food is colourful, even her sprouting table scraps are colourful. Perhaps this love is a reaction to growing up off-grid in the Yukon, where the sun only shone for a few hours each day during the winter months. Maybe it’s her love of the wild outdoors and a desire to pull nature inside. I think it’s her unwavering optimism, for a life where we can all learn to cook, where life can be spent connecting with nature, and vegetable scraps can grow into beautiful, colourful food. When I spoke with Aimée, I didn’t realize we were creating an episode to air during a pandemic. But here we are, and we couldn’t be in better hands. Anyone who learned to meal plan, ferment food, and run a market stall as a young kid, all without electricity, running water or refrigeration, is the person we want at our side right now. This is Aimée. Yes, it's all about celebrating a lot with less, gathering together and perhaps taking our food outside, if we can, today on The Food Podcast. www.thefoodpodcast.com @thefoodpodcast @lindsaycameronwilson @aimeebourque Mentioned in this Episode: A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood Trailer The Yukon Simple Bites - Aimée’s blog just turned 10!

Aran Goyoaga's Kitchen Playlist
Aran Goyoaga, a cookbook author, photographer and stylist, has a playlist on Spotify that’s 113 hours long. She calls the playlist Rain. Rain is fitting. Aran lives in Seattle, a city that’s grey, melancholy. But great photographers, and Bob Marley, know that in the darkness there must come out to light. This theme resonates throughout Aran’s work, from her photography, to her food, to her music. In this episode, we wanted to capture the sound of Aran’s kitchen, the flavour and the feel. So we go inside her playlist and through her music, Aran shares her food story. Cannelle et Vanille is Aran’s second book.

SIDE DISHES, "The mini-series exploring the flavours of home" w.guest Jasmine Oore
Welcome to Part Three of Side Dishes, The Food Podcast mini series exploring the Flavours of Home. Jasmine Oore is a filmmaker, she is a writer, she’s a visionary, she’s a friend. She’s also an Israeli/Polish/ Canadian pickle soup maker. In this episode, Jasmine explores the flavours of her home, a home filled with mustard seeds and dill, crunchy pickles, nasturtiums and arugula. It’s a place where eastern European heartiness merges with sunshine and spice, where grief and salty tears are swirled with sweetness and music. It’s where hunger has lived, alongside illness, dinner parties and laughter. Jasmine’s home moves from Halifax to Baltimore to Montréal and back again. Halifax is the constant. It’s where her family settled, it’s where she has her garden, it’s where she kept her pickles, it’s where she met her husband Matt. Salty, garlicky, fermented and sour are her common flavours in every home. They’re flavours that are new to me - a carbonated crunch, full of history and strife. But in a soup, these pickles mellow into something gentler, something we all can share. “Lindsay, this got complicated,” writes Jasmine at the end of her letter, “but you know, that too is one of my flavours of home.” ----- Mentioned in this episode: Jasmine Oore Films - There’s Been a Terrible Mistake Glamour Guts After the Fall Elvis’ Always on My Mind Julie Andrew’s performing a Jewish Wedding Song For Jasmine’s pickle soup recipe, visit here.

Baby's on Fire with Marianne Pfeffer Gjengedal
Episode 30 Baby’s on Fire with Marianne Pfeffer Gjengedal Have you ever been to a rousing dinner party when towards the end, you insist everyone gather round to watch a video on your phone? They agree because they’re your friends, but then they lean closer, they shh the others, because what they’re watching is so mesmerizing? This is what happens with Marianne Pfeffer Gjengedal’s work, and I was the shh-er. Marianne is a Norweigan food stylist, author and stylist of Kvinnfolk. But on the weekends, when time is her own, she makes cakes inspired by music videos. Female, powerful, colourful music videos. Then she weaves them together - the music, the colours and the cakes - into instagram videos. On this episode we talk about cake as a medium: how this simple food can tell stories full of colour, sound, female strength and sparkle. We talk about cake as memory, as a portal to another time. We take a walk, we eat flowers along the roadside, we put them on cakes. It’s a tribute to edible art, women, song and sound, today on The Food Podcast. So gather ‘round and shh your neighbour, because this is a good one.

Making friends and feeding family with Hetty McKinnon
On today’s episode, Hetty McKinnon and I share a meal in her Brooklyn studio kitchen. Hetty’s an Australian cookbook author, columnist, creator and publisher of Peddler Magazine, and champion of nostalgic storytelling. Needless to say I adore her… Hetty began her life in food making salads and delivering them on her bicycle throughout her neighbourhood in Sydney. She now lives in Brooklyn, where family, recipes and community are woven into all that she does. Our conversation begins on a bicycle but touches down on motherhood, salad love stories, family and writing. But one theme remains constant: being courageous enough to be different, being true to yourself, will lead to a full and flavourful life. Woven throughout the episode is the alphabetic wisdom of filmmaker and animator Andrea Dorfman. There’s also a little cameo of Hetty’s voice from the past, via The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry Podcast. Hetty’s latest cookbook, FAMILY, photographed by episode 27’s Luisa Brimble, is out now. Look for it in your favourite bookstore, or here.

Jell-O Girls with Allie Rowbottom
Episode 28: Jell-O Girls with Allie Rowbottom Jell-O: we’ve all eaten it, swished it around, gulped it down and watched it wobble. But who knew this innocent dessert has a complicated past, one where money, greed, love, hate, cocktails, and misunderstandings lie beneath its sweet, jewel toned exterior? Allie Rowbottom, author of Jello-O Girls - A Family History, puts it all together for us. Allie is the great great great niece of O.F. Woodward, the man who in 1899 bought the patent for Jell-O, and the man who sold it to General Foods for what would now be worth billions of dollars. Mr. Woodward's money has supported his many descendants ever since, Allie Included. In this episode Allie shares her story, one that’s woven into that of her mother’s, her grandmother’s, and the many other women who were part of the Jell-O legacy. We talk women’s roles, the importance of finding a voice, an outlet, a purpose, and how to break free from the Jell-O mould, on this episode of The Food Podcast. http://www.allierowbottom.com/ T https://twitter.com/allierowbottom IG https://www.instagram.com/allierowbottom/ Lindsay Cameron Wilson IG: https://www.instagram.com/lindsaycameronwilson/ Twitter: @lcameronwilson Website: http://lindsaycameronwilson.ca/the-food-podcast/

SIDE DISHES, "The mini-series exploring the flavours of home" w. guest MAGGIE MacKELLAR
Welcome to Side Dishes, The Food Podcast mini series exploring the Flavours of Home. In episode #2 of our side-series, Australian writer Maggie MacKellar shares the flavours of her home on a Tasmanian merino wool sheep farm. Maggie begins with thoughts on... "learning to cook for shearers, and growing our own meat, and about picking walnuts down by the creek, and digging potatoes..." But other flavours get in the way, pushing the flavour definition in wildly different directions. "I sat in the cold, and knew home was not just a flavour on my tongue, it wasn’t about a scent, or a meal, it was about memory and the web of connections that stretch beyond the boundaries of our skin, through our animals, into the land we live on, and then out into the world beyond." Woven through the episode is The Be Good Tanya's Dog Song 2, a song that's serenaded every flavour of my life. I hope you have a listen. It's a special one. @maggiemackellar_ @Lindsaycameronwilson @thefoodpodcast @villagesound

SIDE DISHES, "The mini-series exploring the flavours of home" w. guest FLORE VALLERY-RADOT
Welcome to Side Dishes, The Food Podcast mini series exploring the Flavours of Home. We begin the series with a letter from Flore Vallery-Radot, a French- Australian photographer, filmmaker, entrepreneur, workshop host, mother, wife, beekeeper and passionate cook. I asked Flo to tell me about the flavour of her home on the outskirts of Sydney, Australia. Flavour is a favourite word of mine. Yes, it describes the unique taste of food or drink, but it also captures the character of something… the mood of an event, the tone a conversation, the feel of a home. Flo’s answer, with her beguiling voice, takes us on a magical exploration into travels, relationships, flavour memories, culinary adventures, heartaches, love stories and cookbooks, so many cookbooks. So curl up, close your eyes, and have a listen… I'm wondering, what’s the flavour of your home? @the.flo.show Lindsay Cameron Wilson IG: lindsaycameronwilson Twitter: @lcameronwilson Website: lindsaycameronwilson.ca/the-food-podcast/

Eating in Watercolour with artist Jessie Kanelos Weiner
Today on The Food Podcast, Lindsay sits down with Jessie Kanelos Weiner, an artist, author, food stylist and long term American living in Paris. Her latest book, Paris in Stride, takes the reader on an illustrated walk through Paris. I wanted to be that reader, so I ask Jessie to walk us through her Paris. We visit its beauty, its challenges, and discover how finding a voice as an artist, using a touch of animation and truth, allows Jessie to celebrate the everyday and find value in the familiar. It’s a walk through Paris, with stops in Chicago, Milan and a picnic on the Seine... So pull up a lawn chair (as one does in Jessie's studio) slice into wedge of camembert, and enter the world of an artist living in Paris.

A cup of tea with best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith
Today on The Food Podcast Lindsay sits down with Alexander McCall Smith, Scottish writer and Emeritus Professor of Medical Law at the University of Edinburgh. What begins as as a conversation on his use of tea in writing becomes a deep dive into tea etiquette, kindness and the importance of ritual. Of course the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is discussed; tea breaks are at the heart of detection, I’m sure Mma Ramotswe would say. Meditation is also woven in, along with the importance of packing tea (and a tea pot) when traveling. So put the kettle on, curl up, and have a listen. But remember to be polite, unless of course you switch to coffee. Many thanks for listening. Lindsay Cameron Wilson Host of

Form and Function

It's all about while lies deep inside the fibres, today on The Food Podcast. Many thanks for listening. Lindsay Cameron Wilson Host of
