Today’s episode is sponsored by the 1990’s and the color beige! We’re talking all about our childhood food memories. We discuss the biology of taste, why food is so often tied to memories and emotions, share our listener’s favorite childhood foods, and then discuss our favorite, funniest, and even worst food moments we had as kids.
For our food chat portion, we created a nostalgic potluck worthy of an after-school snack time. Thank you to some of our listeners for submitting their childhood foods as well!
Here’s what we sampled:
Honey butter crescent rolls
Salami and mayonnaise on white bread
Tuna salad on white bread
“Fluffernutter” Peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich
Cracklin’ Oat Bran cereal
Rachel’s favorite recent food memory – Rare Bar & Grill
Erinn’s favorite recent food memory – Cauliflower Romesco with Roasted Salted Potatoes
P.S Erinn made an error to the cauliflower recipe she discussed in a recent food memory. It was a “cauliflower romesco” NOT “cauliflower romanesco.” Romesco is a red pepper based sauce and romanesco is a type of broccoli. The more you know!
Let us know some of your childhood food memories in the comments below!
