T. Susan Chang’s new podcast

T. Susan Chang

T. Susan Chang, who you likely remember wrote weekly EYB blog posts about cookbooks and whose work regularly appears in the Boston Globe, on NPR and other major news outlets, has an exciting new project: her very own podcast. Called The Level Teaspoonit’s all about our favorite subject – cookbooks.

Each week Susie will look at several of the latest cookbook releases, discuss what’s happening in the world of recipes, and test a couple of recipes from the selected books with a friend who likes to cook. Three episodes have been released so far, and you can find the podcast on iTunes,  Stitcher and Google Play.

The latest episode reviews The Saffron Tales: Recipes from the Persian Kitchen  by Yasmin Khan, Land of Fish and Rice: Recipes from the Culinary Heart of China  by Fuchsia Dunlop, and Simple: Effortless Food, Big Flavors by Diana Henry (US version, UK version here.) In addition, Susie and her guest, Christina Barber-Just, make a few recipes and discuss other notable releases. 

Books reviewed in previous episodes include Samarkand: Recipes & Stories from Central Asia & The Caucasus by Caroline Eden and Eleanor FordITSU 20 minute suppers: Eat beautiful with noodles, grains, rice and soups by Julian Metcalf and Blanche Vaughan, and All Under Heaven: Recipes from the 35 Cuisines of China by  Carolyn Phillips.  The podcast has been received rave reviews; we’re sure you will enjoy it too.

    Thanks so much for sharing this! I've never tried a food or cookbook podcast before, but a couple of my other go-to podcasts are retiring, so I will definitely check this one out.

    Thank you so much for sharing! Susie has been one of my role models as a fellow cookbook reviewer and I greatly respect her work. I'm fairly new to podcasts, but look forward to tuning in.

    I just listened to her 3 podcasts. She has a voice that is perfect for this medium!
