This week on the podcast about breakfast potatoes, Sporkful staffers also reveal our resolutions for 2015, which all revolve around food (naturally). What could possibly be more important?
Without further ado, here's what we'll be eating more of next year at The Sporkful:
Dan Pashman, host:
Monosodium glutamate (aka, MSG) used to be verboten in the culinary world. But now scientists are rethinking their demonization of this flavor-enhancing miracle ingredient. That's right, MSG is back, and I'll be celebrating its return by putting it in EVERYTHING. (I especially love it in Maggi sauce.)
Talia Ralph, web writer (and aspiring mustard sommelier):
Our resident French-Canadian, Talia, is on a mission to eat more mustard -- with the aim of becoming the world's second mustard sommelier.
"Mustard is the sauce for all seasons," Talia says. "[It] plays perfectly with everything from carrots (yep) to triscuits and sardines (I may have stolen that one from Gabrielle Hamilton)."
Anne Saini, producer:
As The Sporkful's self-appointed social conscience, Anne is striving to include more under-represented (aka, "ugly") vegetables in her diet -- like bitter gourd, mountain yam root, taro, and yucca.
"Someone’s gotta show these culinary wallflowers some love," Anne argues. “Don’t put bitter gourd in the corner!”
Elite Truong, web writer:
Simplicity is the soul of efficiency -- and deliciousness. Elite's new year's food resolution is exactly that.
"I'm going to eat more noodles in 2015," Elite says.
How can we argue with that?
