Are you a person who loves to cook but every now and then you screw up? You've come to the right place! Since 2004, Adam Roberts (aka The Amateur Gourmet) has been writing about his adventures and misadventures in the kitchen. He's the author of three books (including the upcoming Broadway cookbook, Give My Swiss Chards to Broadway) and the author of a biweekly newsletter for Substack. Each week on The Amateur Gourmet podcast, there's a theme, interviews with famous chefs, writers, actors, and cookbook authors connected to that theme, plus visits from friends and family, and lots of yodeling. If you like what you hear, be sure to become a paid subscriber and you'll have access to twice weekly recipes, essays, bonus podcast material (including Ten Feisty Food Questions with that week's guest), plus threads where you can engage with other Amateur Gourmet fans about food topics that you care about. Just know there's no judgment here: we all screw up in the kitchen!

Hey everyone,

It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday! Do you know what you’re cooking yet? Or what you want your family to cook for you?

Please welcome Sarah Copeland to the stage. She’s not only a prolific cookbook author (The Newlywed Cookbook, Feast, Every Day is Saturday, and her latest, Instant Family Meals), she also happens to be a mom.

Sarah’s oatmeal yogurt pancakes with blackberry crush. Here’s the recipe.


In today’s episode, we talk about Mother’s Day strategies (pancakes, waffles, polenta!), but we also talk about being a food-loving mother and how to get your kids to eat the kinds of foods that you yourself love to eat. When do you make exceptions about processed sugar? (Her Halloween story is hilarious.) Is it ultimately a good thing to give your kid a little Taco Bell? (I think yes.)

So enjoy today’s free episode, and if you want to hear my bonus episode with Sarah — where I ask her Ten Feisty Food Questions — be sure to become a paid subscriber, and you’ll also get tomorrow’s paid-subscriber only email.

Have a great Mother’s Day, everyone!

Your friend,
