Released Sunday, 26th May 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
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.
