Episode 1: Why cook in real time?

February 10, 2009

tvcopyWelcome to Cooking in Real Time! I’m very excited about this new project, and a little daunted–there’s so much information to pass on to all the people who’ve been asking me how to get started cooking.

In this first episode, I just talk briefly about why this format–audio, not flashy video–and what future episodes will hold.

Short answer: Food TV sucks the life out of you, and cheats on time. But smart home cooks have to work efficiently and put together a whole meal at once. With Cooking in Real Time, you can listen along to the podcast and cook dinner at the same time–just press pause if you feel like you might be slipping behind.

So, listen in:

There is a very good chance you are going to replace This American Life as my favorite podcast.

They have much better music, though… And there’s not much plot in these…yet. (Cliffhanger cooking? Nah…)

Um when you’re a novice cook the cliffhanger exists at every attempt? Will it work? Will it taste good? Will I burn down my apartment?
