The Ancestral Kitchen podcast is my bi-weekly hour of joy – I get to sit down with Andrea Huehnerhoff and have an unbridled chat about being a passionate ancestral home cook!


She lives on a newly-created family farm in north-west Washington state, many miles away from my townie apartment kitchen here in Italy. And yet we’re tied together – we’re both centering our lives on the wisdom of ancestral cooking and eating.


I’d love for you to pull up a chair and join us.


And I’ve much gratitude to my hubby, Robert Michael Kay, who does the audio production for us and who wrote the theme. You can find him at www.robertmichaelkay.com
