Sophie Hudson and Jamie share tips and techniques for down home cooking along with quarantine favorite meals that they prepared for their families.
With the "stay at home" that left most of us in a type of quarantine for days or weeks, many of us have cooked more than ever. In fact, "home cooking" has made a resurgence. It seems that the recipes, foods, and cravings that most of us have had is for basic food. Homemade...like our mamas and grandmamas used to make:-)
My stay-at-home time has involved cooking~lots of it. I have cooked more than I ever have. In the process, I've shared my love of cooking with several friends. We use the "Voxer" app to ask cooking questions, share recipes and tips, and give "grocery store updates" for which stores have certain products (as things sell out quickly).
Sophie Hudson is one of the friends with whom I vox about food. I asked her to join my podcast last week just to "talk food" and share tips, recipes, and ideas for easy meals. The podcast is above, or you can listen on iTunes, Spotify or your platform of choice. For those who just want the nuts and bolts, I share them below.
Probably THE most important thing we discussed was the role that salt plays in cooking. This can't be overstated. The book that I am loving right now~Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat~ goes into great detail about salt if you want to dig deeper. But below are a few of the tips that Sophie and I share from our personal experience.
the video below, I show how to salt the chicken for this fabulous buttermilk brine chicken that everyone is going crazy over right now. Sophie and I both love this chicken, and it is the technique from Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat.
Sophie and Jamie, both Southern cooks, share what they made the most during "Stay at Home." They also share some of their favorite easy recipes that anyone can make.
