Dim Sum and Durian, While You Wait!

Our Season 2 Premiere will be in a couple of weeks! Now is a perfect time to check out “The Durian Effect”, Episode 003 of Something About Food?.


Putri and I find out that we both love dim sum but have very opposite ideas about Durian.



This episode will probably make you hungry.

Food News-Rural Houston Farmers Rebound Slowly

Usually, I would write a small recap of the stories I read for Food News. But I won't here. Because this story is heartbreaking and hopeful. There are layers to it involving immigrants who have lived here for generations and their families, self-sufficiency and the need for help, and farmers, American Farmers, who have made a life for themselves in Texas, a life which is now in jeopardy.


Please go read it here, "Houston's Water Spinach Village is Fighting for It's Life", and let me know what you think.



This is the Water Spinach that the article talks about. It may have even come from the very farms in the story.

Let It Rest...Till November

When we decided to do this podcast, I knew right away I wanted to not have to do it every week year in and year out. I built a hiatus into the idea. 10 episodes, hiatus for 6 weeks, and then 10 more episodes. This gives everyone a break and allows us to search out more of our interesting and diverse guests to chat with. We will be back at in the beginning of November with those new episodes.


That also means you can now catch up on any episodes you’ve missed. Here are a few of our favorites:

We’ve got a bit of a gal crush on Chef Kelly Newlon. She and Chef Clarke got to talking about running, food and lots more in Episode #4, “Run to the Table” on Something About Food?


Chef Clarke and Dr. Meenakshi Singh discuss improv, the easiest way to cook idli, the sweetness of Indian desserts and much more here on Episode #8, “From Improv to Idli”, on Something About Food?


Chef Chris and artist Chris Huang find a shared love for Chinatowns, the influence of art in life and sesame balls here in Episode #9, “An Artist’s Palate” on Something About Food?
