Compulsive recipe checkers, raise your hands. For scores of home cooks (myself included), an ingredient list goes in one eye and out the other, leaving us to pause mid-whisk to see if we’ve missed a step.
With Play Me a Recipe, that problem dissolves. Bringing you off the page and into the zone, this podcast has beloved cooks guide you through their favorite recipes, explaining when to add the spices and where to stop for stiff peaks.
Before you start any episode, it helps to scan the recipe, conveniently living in each episode’s show notes (this saved me from omitting sugar from my Plantains Foster!). And, while mise en place is arguably important in any recipe, it’s crucial here to be able to dash in flour to a roux as soon as your guide instructs you.
