I do hope you've had a chance to fall in love with Tilda's very British self-deprecating humor, her Nanny, and her patience with my questions about food culture already! If you haven't gotten a chance to hear Episode 011, Nanny's Syrup Sponge Pudding, take a listen. You'll love it! This episode is a continuation of the conversation, but a little less cut and a little more free-wheeling. Essentially, as I read Jane Austen novels and watched The Crown and the Great British Baking Show at home here in American, I've generated some stereotypes and questions about British food culture that I was so curious to explore. In this episode, Tilda patiently answers my questions with detail and good humor. It was a fun chat! I think you'll enjoy the episode's less edited feel, also. I'm often fitting as much as 2 hours of conversation into 45 minutes, but in this case, I mostly just released the discussion as it happened. Thanks again to Tilda and please enjoy the episode!!!
