On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, friends and dinner party compatriots, Cleo Brock-Abraham and Julia Turshen began Weird & Ravenous as a way to “make fresh content about food and the relationships it inspires”. Through their backgrounds in entertainment and art production, they’ve traveled across Spain with Mario Batali, written cookbooks for Gwyneth Paltrow, made rhapsodical recipe videos for Food52, contribute mealtime musings to Medium, all while trying to Make Monday Better, promoting the idea of cooking for loved ones on Sunday night. This program has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery. Music has been provided by Cookies.

“I think cooking in different places helps you get to know an area that you are unfamiliar with… Cooking with people is the best way to make a place your home.” [12:45]

“A recipe should never fill space just because it fits into a cookbook category.” [18:15]

“Even if it’s something that you’re doing your own take on, just acknowledge that you’re not an expert and make it your own.” [19:00]
