Sara talks to talented food writer Esther Tseng (Eater, Vice, LA Times and more) about life as the daughter of Taiwanese immigrants in New Berlin, Wisconsin (that's "New BER-lin," by the way); why she walked away from a full scholarship for violin studies at the University of Wisconsin in favor of UCLA; the science of cheese curds; pop-up restaurants; why she doesn't cook a whole lot; and how much you'd have to pay her to move back to her hometown. Food-oriented praise is lavished upon Chef Ludo Lefebvre, artist/author/producer/songwriter/musician/food dude Questlove, writer Lucas Kwan Peterson, and comedian/TV host Karl Hess. Thanks to Heather Fink and Guy Opochinski for production support. And thanks so much to Patreon supporters at Patreon.com/SaraBenincasa.
