Herb Garden and YouTube
During my sick leave, I’ve been spending a lot of time on YouTube and listening to podcasts. While my 15 month old was very sick with a cough, one of the only things that would calm her was watching episodes of Good Eats. I also found an excellent YouTube channel called Cooking Up a Story, where I learned about many things I never knew existed, like growing pears in a bottle or organized food swaps.
I received some handmade chocolates for the holiday of Purim and this evening I decided to learn about confections YouTube. I watched a women sculpt chocolate roses and I learned about making lace and and fabric type designs with a product called SugarVeil. The SugarVeil channel is obviously an advertisement for the product, but it is still so cool! After watching the first few videos I thought, can you make edible clothing with this stuff? And sure enough, the the artist and entrepreneur made wedding dresses! These are really worth seeing.
I’ve already posted about my favorite podcasts, including The Splendid Table and Nutrition Diva, but I recently started listening the a program out of California – KCRW’s Good Food. Search for them in the iTunes store.
Coming up soon on this season of Cooking Outside the Box…
