Bento Box Your Life with Kate Inglis

Bento Box Your Life with Kate Inglis

Kate Inglis is a multi-creative - a writer, photographer, a brand strategist, a champion thrifter with the best tickle trunk around. She’s a magical host of workshops, of outdoor gatherings, she’s a lover of the outside, a skier, a mountain biker, and a wood chopper. And now, a person who’s been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that required her to overhaul her life. Kate is here today to tell us about this diagnosis, how it dragged her through the fire, and what it feels like to be living on the other side.

We discuss:

Kate Inglis’s website

Kate’s Instagram

Dr. Mark Hyman - functional medicine and food

Dr. Andrew Huberman - sleep

Wim Hof - cold and breath therapy

Chef Laura Rodriguez - 'anti-inflammatory comfort food'—everyone is unique, and food protocols vary, but she hits the broad strokes

The Happy Pear - Irish Sea sunrise dips

Kate’s favourite recipes right now:

Raw Oreo Cookies — I have these in my freezer all the time. I had googled 'sugar-free dairy-free grain-free gluten-free cookies' as a grumpy joke and now these are a staple. The cookie dough and cream filling are made in the bullet blender. Best eaten straight out of the freezer. Melty and rich and so lovely.

Savory Chickpea Pancakes—I googled these after having them in a restaurant in Toronto, with a warm roasted beet salad on top. These are so fast and easy to make, and could easily be made sweet instead of savory. Made a little thicker, they make almost a flatbread—an excellent replacement for a pita and filled with pork tenderloin or chicken and (cashew cream) tzatziki with cucumber. So yummy.

Corn-Free Cornbread—Another chickpea flour triumph, found while experimenting to make a Thanksgiving stuffing. Such a good feeling to find that as well as a delicious vegan gravy—which combined, these two cover me for all the fall and winter holidays.

Finding Beauty with Kerrilynn Pamer

Finding Beauty with Kerrilynn Pamer

Today on The Food Podcast I’m talking to Kerrilynn Pamer, CEO and co-Founder of Cap Beauty, an online beauty and wellness shop and community. Kerrilynn is also the co-author of High Vibrational Beauty, a cookbook designed to engage the senses and fuel us from the inside out. This book sits on my shelf, in my ‘aspirational’ section, telling the story of that chapter of my life when things shifted, just a little, towards more consistent daily health habits. In this episode, Kerrilynn shares the cookbooks on her shelf that have shaped her story. We also dive into the notion of beauty, and how it can be found in every corner of our lives, if we make the space for it. It’s all about cookbooks, wellness and the sound of a good crackling fire, on this episode of The Food Podcast.

How To Quarantine By Mistake, with Aimée Wimbush-Bourque

How To Quarantine By Mistake, with Aimée Wimbush-Bourque

Aimée Wimbush-Bourque posted a photo last year on Instagram featuring vegetable scraps sprouting from water: garlic cloves, half an onion, the tops of swiss chard and green onions, growing tall, stretching towards the light. It’s a glorious sight - kitchen cast-offs, finding new life. It’s her most popular image, she says, by far.

Aimée is a cookbook author and creator of the blog, Simple Bites. She is also a champion for kids in the kitchen, zero waste living, urban homesteading, and all things colourful. Her clothes are colourful, her food is colourful, even her sprouting table scraps are colourful. Perhaps this love is a reaction to growing up off-grid in the Yukon, where the sun only shone for a few hours each day during the winter months. Maybe it’s her love of the wild outdoors and a desire to pull nature inside. I think it’s her unwavering optimism, for a life where we can all learn to cook, where life can be spent connecting with nature, and vegetable scraps can grow into beautiful, colourful food.

When I spoke with Aimée, I didn’t realize we were creating an episode to air during a pandemic. But here we are, and we couldn’t be in better hands. Anyone who learned to meal plan, ferment food, and run a market stall as a young kid, all without electricity, running water or refrigeration, is the person we want at our side right now. This is Aimée. Yes, it's all about celebrating a lot with less, gathering together and perhaps taking our food outside, if we can, today on The Food Podcast.

Baby's on Fire with Marianne Pfeffer Gjengedal

Episode 30 Baby’s on Fire with Marianne Pfeffer Gjengedal

Have you ever been to a rousing dinner party when towards the end, you insist everyone gather round to watch a video on your phone? They agree because they’re your friends, but then they lean closer, they shh the others, because what they’re watching is so mesmerizing? This is what happens with Marianne Pfeffer Gjengedal’s work, and I was the shh-er. Marianne is a Norweigan food stylist, author and stylist of Kvinnfolk. But on the weekends, when time is her own, she makes cakes inspired by music videos. Female, powerful, colourful music videos. Then she weaves them together - the music, the colours and the cakes - into instagram videos. On this episode we talk about cake as a medium: how this simple food can tell stories full of colour, sound, female strength and sparkle. We talk about cake as memory, as a portal to another time. We take a walk, we eat flowers along the roadside, we put them on cakes. It’s a tribute to edible art, women, song and sound, today on The Food Podcast. So gather ‘round and shh your neighbour, because this is a good one.

Making friends and feeding family with Hetty McKinnon

Making friends and feeding family with Hetty McKinnon

On today’s episode, Hetty McKinnon and I share a meal in her Brooklyn studio kitchen. Hetty’s an Australian cookbook author, columnist, creator and publisher of Peddler Magazine, and champion of nostalgic storytelling. Needless to say I adore her… Hetty began her life in food making salads and delivering them on her bicycle throughout her neighbourhood in Sydney. She now lives in Brooklyn, where family, recipes and community are woven into all that she does. Our conversation begins on a bicycle but touches down on motherhood, salad love stories, family and writing. But one theme remains constant: being courageous enough to be different, being true to yourself, will lead to a full and flavourful life.

Woven throughout the episode is the alphabetic wisdom of filmmaker and animator Andrea Dorfman. There’s also a little cameo of Hetty’s voice from the past, via The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry Podcast.

Hetty’s latest cookbook, FAMILY, photographed by episode 27’s Luisa Brimble, is out now. Look for it in your favourite bookstore, or here.

SIDE DISHES, "The mini-series exploring the flavours of home" w. guest MAGGIE MacKELLAR

Welcome to Side Dishes, The Food Podcast mini series exploring the Flavours of Home.

In episode #2 of our side-series, Australian writer Maggie MacKellar shares the flavours of her home on a Tasmanian merino wool sheep farm. Maggie begins with thoughts on... "learning to cook for shearers, and growing our own meat, and about picking walnuts down by the creek, and digging potatoes..." But other flavours get in the way, pushing the flavour definition in wildly different directions. "I sat in the cold, and knew home was not just a flavour on my tongue, it wasn’t about a scent, or a meal, it was about memory and the web of connections that stretch beyond the boundaries of our skin, through our animals, into the land we live on, and then out into the world beyond."

Woven through the episode is The Be Good Tanya's Dog Song 2, a song that's serenaded every flavour of my life. I hope you have a listen. It's a special one.

Form and Function with Alissa Kloet of KeepHouse

Tea towels - they are form and function. But if you look deeper into the fabric, you'll find stories about design, history and propaganda. Episode 23 unpacks these stories while meeting, along the way, Alissa Kloet, textile artist and owner of KeepHouse. Alissa shares her story of living as an artist in Nova Scotia, and how the land, the ocean and her love of hospitality led to KeepHouse. Oh and we also travel to Scotland, schmooze with royals, drink orange squash and hear about a tea towel collection that began in a tiny house in England. It's all about while lies deep inside the fibres, today on The Food Podcast. 


Many thanks for listening.

Like all kitchen tables, Molly's table is witness to life, to STUFF. This episode explores her stories from her kitchen table, with a little side exploratio

The Pepper Connection

The Pepper Connection

Pepper. It's something I twist (and at one time shook) onto my food several times a day. But rarely have I thought about the peppercorns themselves... until I met Louise and Nigel Biggar of DRØM PEPPER. They call themselves peppermongers.

Yes episode 12 of The Food Podcast is all about pepper. But, as always, we delve into more than just the story of an ingredient. We learn the Biggar's story, and the story of Cambodian peppercorns. We talk about the bittersweet path that Cambodian farmers have taken to revive the peppercorn industry after the Khmer Rouge years. We talk about the Biggar's fresh start in Toronto. We talk about saying YES in life, and the power of personal connections. And, there's a little gelato chat in there too.

We also touch on:

  • salt and pepper shakers - do people still use them? Or are they just cherished just by collectors? Or museums in Spain?
  • Connections with people.

Food Rituals

Food Rituals

Daily ritual is an obsession of mine. I work from home, and when I come across others who do the same, with success, I want to know exactly how they do it: how their daily flow, from food, to sleep, to the time they awake, sparks creativity in their day.

So, for episode 11, I ask three of my favourite ‘work from home’ creatives to share their daily rituals with me.


1. Mason Currey, the author of Daily Rituals, shares his secret clothing item that helps his focus.

2. Claire Cameron, also a writer, guns it through the dark, early in morning, then breaks the flow with something her husband makes for her…

3. Andrea Dorfman, animator and filmmaker, sneaks a little skinny dip in before her day begins. I once asked her what she thinks is the difference between routine and ritual. She replied - routine + spirituality = ritual.


But what do the academics have to say about ritual? Dr. Martha MacDonald s a folklorist who works as the acting d
