The Geek American Road Trip
Kitchen Overlord is on a quest to stalk and cook the oldest monster lurking in your cabinets!
For the next year, she’s traveling to all 48 continental states, staying with nerds and foodies, and asking one question:
Every kitchen has a history.
Maybe you’re holding onto a $20 packet of saffron that lost it’s potency in 2007, or a mysterious can you picked up in an Asian grocery store because you liked the art, or that last box of your favorite discontinued Jell-O. We all have things hiding in the back of our cabinets that we know we’re never going to use but we can’t bear to throw away. Every single one of them has a story. Let’s tell it together.
What’s the oldest thing in your pantry?
Why have you kept it so long? What memories does it spark? Why haven’t you used it? We’ll talk about that item’s history in your life and what it means to you now. If you’re really brave, the Overlord herself will finally put it to use right there in your kitchen.
Let’s get cooking!
Chris-Rachael Oseland is the author of eight cookbooks, a Clarion graduate, former journalist, and a second generation nerd. She can’t wait to make you dinner. If you want to participate in the Geek American Road Trip, fill out the form on the CONTACT page.
