This week on “Someone’s In The Kitchen With….”, I play host to Emeric Harney of the legendary SoHo tea emporium Harney & Sons. Learn how to brew green tea properly, what makes white tea white tea, which kind of tea has the most caffeine (the answer may surprise you) and how to pronounce “pu’er” properly (and what, precisely, “pu’er” is in the first place.) You’ll be happy to see that because I shot this on iMovie, we don’t encounter the same technical issues we encountered last week with Rachel Wharton (don’t worry, we’ll have her back!) Next week I’m playing host to Phoebe Lapine and Cara Eisenpress, the bloggers behind “Big Girls, Small Kitchen” who have a brand new book coming out (with a Foreward from none other than Ina Garten.) Make sure to follow me on Twitter so you can Tweet any questions you may have for them. And if you have ideas for future guests, leave them in the comments!
In just a few hours, the one and only Rachel Wharton (James Beard Award winner, writer for Edible Brooklyn, Edible Manhattan and the new Gilt Taste) is coming over to teach me her recipe for pimento cheese. I’m about to go food shopping for it, but join us at 3 PM EST right here or, if you want to join the chat (and please do! we want questions!) click here.
UPDATE: So we had some technical problems along the way (the video would freeze every so often and people couldn’t get into the chat room), but Episode 1 of “Someone’s In The Kitchen With…” was a lot of fun—this pimento cheese is so amazing, I can’t stop eating it (here’s the recipe)–and now the video is archived and watchable above. Thanks, Rachel, for being such a great first guest!
