We cook a lot. But did we cook every single meal in January?

David Tamarkin, editor of Epicurious, did, for his #Cook90 challenge—and I had a few questions, like how was it going? but also: Why did it have to be an all or nothing approach? What counts as "cooking"? Are you so very, very tired of soup? And: Why?

So I asked him for this week's podcast episode:

Listen to hear about the things he didn't expect to learn, and the questions he didn't expect it to raise—and then tell me what you think home cooking is: Record a short voice memo and send it to me at [email protected] for a chance to be featured on a future episode. Does boiling an egg count as cooking? Does burning toast?

Play the episode above, find it on iTunes, or listen to it using your favorite podcatcher. (Don't have one yet? We're fans of Stitcher.) And tell us what you think in the comments below!
