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.

Circumstances and Choices Voyager Read A Long Week 21

This week’s Voyager read-a-long episode is all about “Circumstances and Choices,” with a side of drunken turtle soup for our immense enjoyment.  Listen here.

Claire is recovering from the saber slash resulting in 43 sutures along her right arm. She finds herself in need of the limited penicillin she brought with her from the 20th century. Jamie must help her with this task. In this, Claire shares of the patient that sent her to Scotland where she met Roger Wakefield, subsequently sending her back to Jamie. Choices had altered her circumstances, unwittingly putting her on the path back to Jamie.

If it wasn’t for her patient, would she have gone at all? I’d like to think it would’ve happened no matter what, but that question ultimately cannot be answered.

Jamie for the first time in his life faces the possibility of choosing what to do after Young Ian is found. He’s never been in this position before. The world is his oyster. His new circumstances will pave the way for untold choices.

Like Jamie, Temeraire faces a choice to go with Ishmael or stay aboard the Artemis. He, too has never had the question of what he wants posed to him, maybe ever.

There’s a depth to these shorter chapters. These words a mere taste for all that is covered within. It seems when one thinks there’s no choice in the matter or circumstances, there’s no need for courage or bravery. Maybe so, maybe no. You’ll have to listen to find out.

Enjoy!

 

What’s Coming up? Week 2w will cover chapters 58-59.
