Hey friends! The first episode of TurnTABLE is just around the corner. I’m super excited to be kicking off the show this week.
The framework for this show works like a kind of interactive cookbook: each week I’ll have a new recipe for you to try (it could be something fun and random, something long passed down in my family, or maybe a favorite of a friend); and then I’ll add the musical parings that seem, in my mind, to correlate with the taste. I like to think of it as a MixPlate – like a mix-tape playlist but also something to put on your plate (haha anyway I think its clever). And safe to say, just as food is multicultural and varied to many different tastes, so too will the music here vary – in genre, in age, in every way possible.
If you want to cook along with me and the show, you’ll be able to find the list of ingredients/supplies you’ll need by Wednesday of each week at the latest.
This week is kale chips. Kale chips are a fun, super easy, and a good way to start snacking healthy if that’s not typically your thing. Also get ready for some 90s, early 2000s favorites of mine that I think match the creativity and edginess of what we’ll be cooking.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 or 2 bunches of kale, washed and dried
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil per bunch
- Cumin and paprika option (a half and a fourth)
- Parmesan and chili pepper option
- Rough grain sea salt
- Lemon juice
- A really large bowl
- Non-stick baking sheet or baking sheet with parchment paper
