Ep. 1: Preservation, with Katia Kelly

By Peddler Journal

When Katia Kelly inherits a sacred family heirloom - her mother’s recipe book filled with hand-written recipes and notes - it opens up a discussion about the important role home cooking plays in helping preserve one’s history and culture. Over a pot of English breakfast tea, we discuss Katia’s journey from Germany to France and then the United States, where she eventually settles in the sleepy neighborhood of Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn, New York. From condensed milk to linzer torte, we learn about the way recipes can represent a progression of our lives. Katia teaches us that no matter how much changes in the world around us, we can always stay connected to our memories and life experiences through the simple act of cooking. Episode notes: The House Specials is a podcast brought to you by Peddler Journal, produced by Shirley Cai, theme music by Scout McKinnon, music in this episode by Blue Dot Sessions (, tile artwork by Satsuki Shibuya. --- Support this podcast:
