Tune in for some real knowledge and insight on this show! This program was brought to you by Visit Napa Valley. “Many of the cookbooks I write in the subjects voice. You have to channel them. “It’s parody without the jokes. It has to sound like them.” [27:00] “[My advice to chefs is to] travel. You won’t be able to do that your whole life when you get tied down to a restaurant or family. So much of what goes on in the food world these days comes from travel and experiencing other peoples cuisines.” [43:00] “Food is among the most important things in your life. On the other hand it’s important not to make it overly important. People who talk about food a lot are talking about it too much, I think.” [46:00] —Peter Kaminsky on Chef’s Story

Episode 29: Author Peter Kaminsky: “Culinary Intelligence”

What Doesn't Kill You

On this week’s episode of Straight, No Chaser, Katy Keiffer is joined in the studio by Peter Kaminsky, food writer and author of Culinary Intelligence. Peter defines “culinary intelligence” and discusses his weight loss process by eliminating “white foods”: sugar, flour, potatoes, etc. Tune in to hear Katy and Peter discuss the cost effectiveness of eating seasonally, the importance of eating home-cooked meals, and why portion sizes in restaurants are causing the country’s waistbands to expand. Hear about how the Food Network has turned cooking into a sport, why a petroleum-based agricultural economy is not sustainable, and how the Western fast-food diet has spread internationally. Listen to this episode of Straight, No Chaser to learn more about health and sustainable eating! This episode has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery. “If things don’t have flavor, they’re not going to satisfy you. And if they don’t satisfy you, you’re going to compensate with a lot of sugar, salt, and fat.” “They ain’t gonna change the portion size just because you walk in with health on your mind.” “We have blazed a path, [people across they world] picking up our Slurpees and french fries.” — Peter Kaminsky on Straight, No Chaser

Episode 107: Peter Kaminsky

Eat Your Words

This week on Let’s Eat In, Cathy Erway is joined by Peter Kaminsky, food writer and author of the new book Culinary Intelligence. Peter talks about his own health and motivation for writing Culinary Intelligence, as well as the importance of getting the most flavor for your calorie. Peter also digs into his past, as he reads a passage from his book about his local butcher in Kensington, Brooklyn. Hear about how fresh, quality ingredients not only add to flavor, but also that “feeling of satisfaction.” Finally, hear what Peter would cook at home as his ideal date meal, and the upcoming events for the release of Culinary Intelligence. This program has been sponsored by Hearst Ranch. “Culinary intelligence is a way of eating- my way of eating. If you want to maintain a healthy weight and a healthy diet, don’t eat processed foods, but the best full-flavored ingredients you can afford- and from that follows sustainable and local- and cook or live with someone who does the same.” “If your ingredients or cooking techniques cannot deliver flavor per calorie, on goes the mayo, on goes the butter.” “Without fat, we’re just plants!” —Peter Kaminsky on Let’s Eat In
