PODCAST: Tips on overcoming the perils of cooking at home and grocery shopping w/ Brian and Sarah (PART I)


Grocery shopping. Cooking at home. How to read recipes. These things, though things that should be well-known among most, are genuinely stressful. Instead of talking about restaurants, we record inside Brian Addison’s apartment for two hours so we can hit on the issues inside the home kitchen. Joined by Sarah Bennett (along with an appearance by our producer, Steven Smith), this trio goes through their tips, their admitted lack of knowledge, and more in this all-new, all-home Suppertime in the LBC.
