Get strategies for being thrifty - whether you’re trying to save money grocery shopping or save time in the kitchen. Michael Davenport used to test different brands in his recipes to see how to get the best bang for his buck without sacrificing the flavor of his ingredients. In this episode, he shares his belief that cooking is about navigating different challenges - having the most expensive ingredients doesn’t make you the best chef. Get tips for buying economy cuts and making plant-based dishes and sides with mushrooms and beans. Michael shares his own struggle with going overboard at farmer’s markets (ever need one thing and leave with 15?) and gives advice for saving time in addition to resources (think salads, slow cooking, and sun tea).
