Of Rogue Vegetables

A Conversation with Theresa Carle-Sanders, Outlander Kitchen

Episode 105

Listen to podcast!

I am so happy to bring you my recent conversation with Theresa, the professional chef behind Outlander Kitchen and The Official Outlander Companion Cookbook.  She is the perfect podcast fit for this week’s hiatus of Outlander Season 3.  If you haven’t listened to our last conversation from 2016, you must.  She’s wildy witty and smart. What character do you think she fancies herself being?

Since the launch of the cookbook in 2016, it has been translated into French, German, and a Polish version is on the way. Whether you dabble in the kitchen or are an aspiring chef, the recipes are doable and delicious.

Each week during Outlander Season 3, Theresa pairs a recipe to go with the episode. It’s fun to see what she comes up with. I tried my hand at the Goat Cheese and Bacon Tarts this season. They weren’t as pretty as the photo in the cookbook, but they were quite tasty. Be on the lookout for the culinary pairing!

Can you figure out which product is mine? Shakes my head. Hey, I tried!

During our conversation, I found out she would love to invite TV Murtagh over for dinner, she thinks book Bree is the most picky eater, she adores imperfect rogue vegetables, and she has a surprising guilty pleasure.

In this fast-paced world, we often don’t slow down enough to cook a meal from scratch. Outlander Kitchen recipes inspires us to slow down, try a recipe, share the love and food with our family and friends.  It’s heartwarming to Theresa that mothers and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters are entering the kitchen once again because of the recipes she’s designed. The bonding and family memories that are created over cooking and eating together are priceless. The wonderful memories from her kitchen experiences growing up are put into each website and cookbook offering.

I hope you enjoy listening to our conversaton, as much as I had recording it with her. Be prepared to laugh (a lot) and learn some kitchen wisdom along the way.

Eat. Drink. Be merry. And watch Outlander.

    I really enjoyed this episode and the discussion. however, I did hit my head on my desk when you BOTH thought it was really silly and sort of cute that Germany did not have a thing such as Kosher Salt. Please re read that….Germany does not have Kosher salt. Why would GERMANY not have a Jewish staple….cringe….C’mon guys! You are both so smart, and I just can’t imagine that you all did not snap that the reason Germany does not have anything kosher is because they now have a Jewish population of just about zero, so the demand is obviously…..not there. Thanks to that whole WW2 thing. I don’t mean to be snarky, but this was sort of…..sad actually.


    • I’m sorry you took it that way. I know history of course. I have no idea how the culinary aspects of German cooking are impacted by WW2. I do know kosher salt is used by non-Jewish people because of its qualities and lack of additives.
