This week, we honor mothers and mother figures. We sit with Chef Kwame Onwuachi and his mother, Jewel Robinson to talk about how she influenced his passion and curiosity for cooking and how that has fueled his career. Melissa Clark stops by to share the unusual way she celebrates Mother’s Day, and it's NOT breakfast in bed. Then she sticks around to answers your Spring cooking questions. Her latest book is Kid in The Kitchen. Then we have an intimate listen-in on Caroline Shin and her mother, Joung Ja Shin as they talk about miyeokguk, a seaweed soup typically known as birthday soup and traditionally given to mothers after giving birth. Caroline is the founder of Cooking with Granny, a video and event series featuring cooking tips and stories from immigrant grandmothers.
