Episode 1: Kate Payne
Episode 1 features Kate Payne talking about rhubarb time travel and how the MTA might help us write. Kate is the author of The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking (Harper Design, 2011), which you can buy a signed copy of on her site, http://hipgirlshome.com/. Kate is on twitter (where she and I “met”) under the handle @hipgirls.
Kate and I talk about her poetry and fiction writing– she’s one of those rare birds who plays around in many genres. She also shares her experience writing and selling a non-fiction book.
I ask Kate stupid questions about public transportation in Austin. For my own benefit, info here.
Macerating, as it relates to jam and preserve making, involves letting fruit and sugar sit to draw out the juices.
I love Kate’s “kitchen journal” idea. We share kitchen journals.
NaNoWriMo, which Kate mentions, is here.
They Draw and Cook, which I recommend to Kate, is the best thing to like on Facebook because every once in a while, a cute illustrated recipe will show up in your feed.
Cooking folk that we are, neither of us knows what Kirsch is.
Kate gifted me a jar of her Birch and Honeyed Apricot Preserves (!). She wrote about them right here.
