Hello, and welcome to another episode of the podcast. Today on the podcast, I have an interview with Lisa Ruland. Lisa is a recovering lawyer who traded criminal court for the pastry kitchen. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, Lisa worked as a pastry chef in some of New York City’s top bake shops, and then found her happy place in food writing. In 2014 Lisa lost her husband Erik in a tragic accident on Mt. Rainier. Working as a full-time food writer at the time of her husband's death, Lisa was continually struck by the many ways her loss impacted her relationship with food: learning to eat alone, making foggy-headed cooking mistakes, learning to food shop for one, being too sad to throw out his now-long-expired yogurt. Today on the podcast we talk about grief including the physical, psychological, and community aspects of food + grief.
