Behind the Podcast : Davia Nelson on Cooking By Ear

 

Class Description

After 22 years as head chef at the iconic Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California, Cal Peternell left and teamed up with audio producer Kristina Loring to work on a new venture, a podcast called “Cooking By Ear.” In each episode, Cal visits the kitchen of a famous friend, like Frances McDormand and Alexander Payne, where they talk about everything from food to family to poetry to film. Listeners are encouraged to cook along in real time, so they’ll have a complete meal by the end of the episode.

In this behind the scenes look at the making of an episode, Cal cooks and chats with Davia Nelson, one half of the Kitchen Sisters team, an award-winning radio producer, podcaster, and author whose work focuses on cooking, culture, diversity, and activism.
