We are pleased as peanut butter (see what I did there?) to announce that Jeannette Ordas, Vancouver food blogger and designer, will be the guest on our food episode! You may know her award-winning blog Everybody Likes Sandwiches, or you may recognize her from the recipes she posts on Poppytalk. If you’re local to Vancouver, you may recognize her from craft fairs, where she sells her lovely and witty cards.
I had coffee with Jeannette last week and we agreed we should ask you to help us choose the focus of our food episode. So tell us, what do you want to know about? An ingredient? A type of dish? How and why certain ingredients interact the way they do? (Note: This episode will specifically not be about dessert foods.)
To get our food groove on a little, I put Jeannette on the spot and asked her five questions (I put myself on the spot too; they’re not my most creative questions):
Kim: What’s your favourite thing to eat?
Jeannette: A hamburger. And I never make hamburgers. Maybe that’s why I love them.
Kim: What’s something you learned online about cooking?
Jeannette: How to truss a chicken. [I had to ask her how to spell that. True story.] It involves twine and a whole chicken.
Kim: What would you want to learn online about cooking?
Jeannette: How to descale a salmon. And how to cut up a chicken into eight different pieces. [Jeannette had chickens on her mind.]
Kim: What’s the most delicious thing you’ve ever made?
Jeannette: Always really good is this weird yam, peanut butter and pineapple soup I got from the Rebar cookbook.
Kim: What’s your ideal taco?
Jeannette: It’s that porky one with pineapple. [I have no idea what she means.] It’s a soft taco. A little spicy, a little sweet.
Now I’m hungry. And I’m excited to hear from you about what you’d like our food episode with Jeannette to focus on. Ready? GO.
