Part of the joy of cooking comes from winging it. Sam Sifton of The New York Times and New York Times Cooking joins us to talk about ways home cooks can rely less on recipes and more on skill. You can cook! And you don’t always need a recipe. Sam’s got a career’s worth of tips to offer and plenty of guidance for pulling meals together from a simple ingredients list—no measurements—and the freedom and encouragement to substitute anything you like.
Robyn Doyon-Aitken and Catie Talarski produced this show.
