This week on Why We Cook, Erica has a special guest in the studio – Pastry Chef and Culinary Instructor Chad Pagano. Erica and Chad talk about all things related to baking, including sugar varieties, the shelf life of flour and how egg quality really DOES matter. This episode was sponsored by Egglands Best, in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
