Hi, all! I hope your wintertime and holidays are going well. Just thought I'd post a little somethin' somethin' about a new-ish project I've been co-working on: a food in fiction podcast! The awesome Carrie Rashid over at Witchy Kitchen asked me to start a podcast with her discussing food in some of our favorite works of fiction (books, TV shows, movies), and we decided to call it the FICTION KITCHEN PODCAST! As of right now we have four episodes up–all coincidentally connected to books–on our website as well as on iTunes. New episodes go live the first and fifteenth of every month. So far we've talked about HBO's "Game of Thrones" and George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Neverending Story novel by Michael Ende and 80s movie of the same name, The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis (with particular focus on The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) and the 2005 film, and, most recently, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and the 1995 BBC miniseries. Along with each podcast episode, Carrie and I both share a recipe for a food either directly from the piece of fiction or inspired by it; the recipes are posted on our website along with photos.
We're still new to this whole podcasting thing and are giggly at times and sometimes forget what we want to say, etc., etc, but it's been a ton of fun nerding out with Carrie, talking about works of fiction we like and FOOD, of course. I hope you'll give an episode a listen and enjoy!
