AMA: Live from the Atlanta Airport
I answer thought provoking questions between flights
I’m flying from North Carolina to Colorado today.
I’ll be traveling a lot this month, including to the Super Bowl. Shoutout to everyone who I will see at Taste of the NFL and everyone at GENYOUth. They are doing important work and I’m honored to be helping them in their efforts.
We have some thought provoking reader questions this week and I’m here for it. One person inquired about what I’d be doing if I wasn’t in food and media and I am certain about the answer: teaching or politics. I once thought I’d teach art history. I was a history and art history major at Vassar and my experiences from class still impact me today. Another reader asked a questions about turning back time. While I don’t dwell on regrets, I do think we all want to redo some things. I do think everything I have been through has helped me become the person I am today and I’m grateful for all of it, the good and the bad. And I can’t help but think of what it would be like to live in a different era than we do now. My favorite part of history was the Golden Age, and I’d love to turn back the clock and live in New York City during that time.

People ask how I do it all. The truth is, I don’t. For a few dollars a month, you can support Spilled Milk and the team that makes it.
If you could be known as something other than a world-renowned chef and author, what would you be?
What would you turn back time for?
Remember to send me your questions!! It’s my favorite part of every week. Thank you for listening.
SPILT MILK (SPILT English/Irish version)
by Wm Butler Yeats, Ireland "s most
We that have done and thought
That have thought and done
Must ramble and like spilt milk
Thin out on a stone.
Love Atlanta, hate the airport. Only airport I ever got stranded at, overnight…weirdest, longest night. shivered a lil just looking at it!
Question about going back…. Loved your perspective, feel similarly, I am this person because of what I’ve been thru, good & bad. Sure, maybe a do over of a stupid decision or two, or a conversation that needed or didn’t need to happen….
But if I went back, it wouldn’t be for me. I lost a friend due to his alcohol problem, he was only 30. He hid it well. If I went back, I’d go back, rally the friends, see if we could change that outcome.
Still thinking of where I’d chose for my “hot-tub Time Machine” go back time period….
