Mother’s Day will look a little different this year without being able to go out for brunch or gather with relatives. Although celebrations may be limited, this week on Meat and Three we’re exploring the power of family recipes and the ways mothers inspire creativity in the kitchen all year round.

Kevin Chang Barnum speaks with the founder of Eat, Darling, Eat a website chronicling mother-daughter relationships through the lens of food. Katie Philo interviews cookbook author Andrea Nguyen about the influence of her family history on her culinary career. Kat Johnson shares the secret to her mom’s oatmeal drop cookies. The producers of Modernist Breadcrumbs discuss another kind of mother, the one involved in cultivating yeast.
