After hours of dreaming and planning and buying microphones and learning audio editing and trying not to say “um”, it’s here. We present A Couple Cooks: The Podcast! Why a podcast? A few reasons: first, we wanted to invite you into our real life kitchen in a deeper way that extends beyond food photographs. But most of all, we’re truly passionate about the impact that cooking nutritious food at home can have on your life, and for us one of the best ways to learn was not just reading recipes but talking with other people who cook. And the next best thing to a real-life conversation with each one of you? Podcast.
