This brianna bolden tells me she could smell the soap rotting wood from outside the front door of her grandmother's house before walking into this is pictures and the memories. They captured all underwater. And this is actually my big lama right here. This is all and that's the past those wife for half a century. Her grandparents filled this home with children and grandchildren home cooked meals. Tiny reminders of a family growing together is a lot of memories at this house. But now this house like so many in texas has been gutted. Helplessly flooded by first hypes last week's historic winter storm on your couch look. The damage is just a fraction of the devastation. in texas. that killed thirty. Two people will take months or years and billions of dollars to clean up. So how did it go so wrong so quickly. Texas has more than enough generating capacity to handle itself. It was just the state of affairs of that equipment and the state of affairs of the management of that equipment. The causes from texas is the only state in the continental us with an independent grid meaning. It does not connect to any other states power source. When that merciless winter weather hid in one of the warmest regions of the country. People crank up their heaters and the energy demand surged when that system shut down. There was nowhere to turn for power. There is no place for the texas grid to go there. Couple small lines extension cords to the east in the west. But that's not enough really to to pick up. A forty percent drop in texas generation and the result was more than three million texas residents in the dark and cold at one point leading many to take drastic measures for running dangerously low on one. So now what we've been doing. All day is actually coming outside getting snow putting it are pods and heaving on our propane grill. Then hypes began to freeze and burst shutting down water treatment plants across the state inning. Almost fifteen million texans would have to toil their water of four. It was safe to drink daily block water. We don't even have the electric reliability council of texas or bur. Kat had long been warned. Its infrastructure was vulnerable to freezing temperatures the state legislature held hearings on this exact issue in twenty eleven. The last time the state experienced major freeze there were numerous hearings hundreds of pages of recommendations but they were all made voluntarily. Nobody actually change the incentives so that the generators would have a financial reason food to weather. Is this week.

The loss of a loved one state leaders have promised an investigation into urquhot handling of the crisis and members of both parties and the governor of rowing to make sure texans are on the hook for those astronomical electric bills at a time when essential services were needed. The most the system broke. You deserve answers. You will get those answers but people brianna bolden are in need of far more immediate solutions. She's facing mounting hardships. Having recently lost her father and grandfather. It sounds like your grandmother doesn't have home insurance right now. She don't she couldn't afford it anymore. Every generation been through this. Is papa really worked hard for this. I'm sorry statewide. There is so much damage from burst. Pipes plumbers can't keep up see the water. We have another one right here. Everardo omega of a plumbing. In houston says he's crews have been working around the clock just as bad. I mean there's necas mad and they're receiving more calls than they can answer this heartbreaking the tell somebody. uk make we broke down here. Twenty five hours plummer andrew mitchell in his family driving all the way from new jersey with a car full of equipment in arts in short supply here for just going to see what we can do to help out texas residents and also converging in texas to help out the cajun navy civilian volunteers known for using their big trucks. Kamal boats for rescues during major storms like hurricane harvey in twenty seventeen. We talked with a lot of people around here who've been they were impacted by hurricane harvey. I dealing with this. A lot of people think that this is worse than a hurricane's coming in we have more. We know what's going to happen with this disaster. We did not know what was coming.

Cajun navy crowd sources disasters and cajun navias known so once we find the need we start using the social media platform and we put the word out there and people want to help on this day.

Fixing The Problem Of Regulating Algorithms
"So nathan. tell me what's an algorithm algorithms can be thought of as a recipe. A series of steps often programmed into a computer that determine how machine behaves but the challenge as any cook often fines. Is that when you put them out into the world especially something of sufficient complexity. They often behave in ways. That are different from what we expect. Can you just take a minute to explain how that's problematic. And why why should we care. That algorithms are deciding which piece of content you see on facebook or which which video you're being recommended on. Youtube algorithms happen at all levels from exactly how the electrons go from one point to another on the internet to the much more high level things that we think about in our direct experience for example an algorithm determines what your email inbox decides is spam an on twitter decides which faces to show when it's displaying a photo and algorithms also and critically make decisions about what information to prioritize when showing us feeds on facebook on twitter when determining which adds we see which adds we don't and those are often some of the uses of algorithms that people worry about in society and policy circles. Youtube makes a recommendation system to help us find the videos. We like and suddenly were worrying about recommendations of extremism. Microsoft makes fun chattan that will have interesting conversations with you and now we're worrying about it learning racism and hatred so we find that although we have these simple building blocks of an algorithm that an engineer can imagine they often grow to be something larger than we might admit initially imagine i've written and others have written about the problem of algorithms on facebook favorite is ing or preferring content and posts that are emotional that are negatives that are divisive. There's been an argument. That that's one of the reasons why we have so much division and polarization in our societies that we are being fed more and or excitable an angry content because the algorithm tests and guesses that. That's what we're gonna wanna see or anyway. That's what's going to keep us online or keep us using facebook. Is it accurate. Is that how they work. We do live in a world where many of the systems that determined what we see. And to give our attention to our learning from our behavior our preferences and from the collective behavior of many others some of who are paying some of them have motivated coordinated campaigns to influence those our them's and they're adapting in real time and so because we've never really faced a situation like this at such scale. People have a lot of concerns about how those algorithms are behaving and what they're doing to society one of the fundamental challenges. I think scientists are still wrestling with. Is this challenge of influence. Typically if a car crashes because there's say a faulty drivetrain we can point to the engineering and say there's a problem with this system. With these adaptive systems they're reacting and learning and responding to human society and human behavior and we're still developing the scientific tools to understand what it means to have those feedback loops and in the meantime we have to live in a world where these things very real power
Would You Ever Join OnlyFans?
"Wet is only fans. It is not a site that only sells electrical fans although you may find some pages that contain fans on them weird. Yeah because it was your first thought when you think of onlyfans a website that only fans if you literal now i understand what you're saying you like that but that's what. It is actually a nice summary. From men's health magazine explains that only fans which launched in two thousand sixteen allows users to post original content and sell to people who want to see it. There are chefs who share cooking. Videos and fitness instructors lead workout classes but the site has primarily become for the porn stars who have amassed a giant following. Most of those reforms charged upwards of five dollars for a month subscription. The maximum creator can charge fifty dollars a month plus extra for personalized photos and videos and tips are encouraged interesting. Okay that makes sense influence. A marketing hub. Kind of really breaks it down. Even further to your point they definitely say it's a monetize -able platforms that allows content creators to create these subscriptions with their their fans where they pay like you said x. Amount per month anywhere between five dollars to fifty dollars a month only fans retains a twenty percent fee so there is a fee per this type of service in argue sign up and they can also content. Creators also can have free pages where they can charge fans to access content via pay per view. So that's interesting to know and content. Creators have both the free page and a subscription page tha diversify and optimize their earnings. So for instance actor. Bela torn join only onlyfans and racked up millions of dollars in just a few days only plans implemented transaction limits which capped the ppv pricing at fifty dollars posts and tips from new fans at one hundred dollars per tip and they also change the payout frequency in some countries from weekly paths to pay outs. Every twenty one days so very very interesting also to know they just so you guys now on influence or marketing hub. They say that this site was founded in twenty sixteen by british tech entrepreneur investor timothy stokely and now has more than thirty million registered users and more than four hundred fifty thousand content creators. And that's pretty. Pretty darn nifty. Now to your point. I did also see a lot of content around the idea that this is a platform where you don't have to be showing sexually explicit type of content but for people who seem to be more popular and or iraq and more money seemed to be showing that type of content where com creators are posting uncensored x rated pictures videos as well as hosting live strange were their followers can engage with the creators real time interesting and also they have messaging features that allow creators to market to their viewers. Similar email marketing letting them know about new or exclusive content polls and more and their live performances go along way toward increasing audience. Engagement brand affinity optimizing viewership. Very very interesting
Republicans Push Back On Historic Nomination Of Deb Haaland For Interior Secretary
"And Natural Resource is committee today held confirmation hearings for New Mexico representative Deb Holland to be the next secretary of interior. A confirmation would be historic. She would be the first Native American Cabinet member in the nation's history. Her nomination by President Biden has also been criticized by oil State Republicans because of her stated opposition issues such as to fracking in the Dakota access pipeline. Ecuadorian reports from Fresno. The history being made by Deb Holland's nomination was hailed by all on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, even those who are skeptical of her policy views The special nature of the moment was evident as the New Mexico congresswoman introduced herself to the committee and the nation. I spent summers in the Sita, or small village on Laguna Pueblo, the location of my grandparent's traditional home. It was there that I learned about my culture from my grandmother by watching her cook and by participating in traditional feast days and ceremonies, it was in the cornfields with my grandfather, where I learned the importance of water. And protecting our resource is where I gained a deep respect for the Earth Committee chair, Joe Manchin outlined the immensity of the task. The Interior Department manages 500 million acres of land. 1/5 of the entire country. The 70,000 employees oversee Parks Monuments Wildlife refuge because dams, reservoirs and canals. It also supervisors mineral resource lands that produced 20% of the nation's energy. Citing previous statements Deb Holland had made about fossil fuel production. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, the committee's ranking member, set the theme which Republican members came back to repeatedly. Oil production in federal lands and oil pipelines, especially the Dakota access pipeline. By signing an executive order to ban all new oil coal gas leases on federal lands. The president is taking a sledgehammer to Western states economies. Ban on federal leasing could result in 33,000 workers losing their jobs in Wyoming. Representative Hollins home state of Wyoming, 62,000 workers stand to lose their jobs. Holland also faced questions over her appearance at protests of the Dakota access pipeline in North Dakota before she was elected to Congress in 2018. Holland said she went there in solidarity with Native American tribes and other water protectors, who felt they were not consulted adequately before the multi state pipeline was approved. President Joe Biden has sense next the project. Conservative
Seeking Refuge On The Open Road
"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out
Bon Appétit: How the New York-based publication ended up in hot water
"And restaurants and a lot of cooking a lot of cooking stuff. And they had a huge online presence. They had a YouTube channel, where they were getting 3,000,004 million hits, People watching these videos and shows they had host of these shows and stuff. And then over the summer, they're their CEO, Their head guy at the magazine. A picture of him from 13 years ago came out him and his wife at a Halloween party dressed as I don't recall the inner city people people said he had black face on. He did not have any black face on, but he was dressed. Maybe a Zagat, Puerto Rican there in New York, and that's a thing there. And nobody had ever thought anything of it. But now in this day and age, somebody posted that picture online. He had never hidden and it was sitting on his desk and it started a whole discussion and then people of color at the at the magazine said they weren't being paid like other people, and you kind of listen to their story. You think well are you're not being paid because you're a person of color there. This is a liberal magazine in New York City. I mean, let's let's face who we are here. This This isn't Fox News. This is a liberal magazine Akani Nastya liberal liberal company and everybody there is a is a Democrat liberal, and and now they're saying that they're not paying people of color. The same is repaying white people. And my question was well. Are they not paying you because you're more junior or you were hired more recently or because you don't have as much responsibility or whatever it may be, or is because you're a person of color and I mean, they've hired you have all these people there and it created this whole backlash. The head guy had to quit. The other people resigned. They all the employees stop doing the videos until they got it worked out several more people. People of color resigned. And now the magazine has come out with a new editor in chief. A new Everybody's new Everybody is zah diverse. Everybody's a person of color who's now running things and The magazine is doing this intensive makeover. Where when you go through now, if they're gonna, they're gonna have AH, recipe for Mexican food or Latin food or something that has to come from a Latin author. If they They're going back through 55 years of recipes, and they're going through and finding ones that they think maybe just as a maybe might have had a wink and a smile and a Some other culture or had a white author to the recipe for a more diverse a type of food. In other words, you can't write a Mexican food recipe unless your message and you can't do a recipe for Jewish food unless you're Jewish. My goodness. What? And then they're putting disclaimers on as if people are becoming offended now to read a recipe about food from a particular culture that wasn't written by that culture. It's really pretty amazing when you think about it. It's amazing. All right, everybody, That's
Here's how to support and celebrate Seattle's first-ever Black Restaurant Week
"There Seattle restaurant week and how this works is hundreds of restaurants in the city participate. They have a special three course menu with a set price, And this is all designed to lower diners in But this week is Black Restaurant Week, which is also a marketing campaign to encourage people to eat and black owned rest. Drawn. But the founders of Black Restaurant week which they're based in Houston, actually, but they have expanded out to the whole country, said that a lot of restaurants that are owned by black people don't have these fancy menus and three course menus, so they were always being left out. So I spoke with Reginald Robinson. He owns Alphas, Louisiana, Cajun seasoning and spices in tents, and he decided to open his Alien store because he's from New Orleans. And he couldn't find any of the foods and products that he misses. Red beans and rice are greens, Po boys, catfish, We have alligator. We have the stuff called Boo Dan. We have crawfish and everything in our story is have that Louisiana brand to it. Gonna top sellers is familiar at being because you know, everybody On Mondays they cooked red beings down in Louisiana just to start. Thing they do. Sometimes we even bring blueberry ice cream here. Anyone down south Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, your eyes light up. People be like, Oh, my God, you have bluebell. So Fallon Farrell, who is one of the founders of Black Restaurant week, she says, Because it's systemic racism, it could be harder for a black person to get a bank loan when they're opening a restaurant. The issued in our community is that a lot of businesses a started with people's personal savings credit cards. Usually when they do get loans. They have higher interest rates, so they just don't have that financial will go room. It's really sustained major hits to a business and so you know, a lot of them really weren't able to get the first round of P P p loans and She says, because of the marketing that happens when they do black restaurant week. They really do bring new customers. And I think last year the average ourselves increases about 30% most businesses. CIA, increasing their social media following us well And then when we talk about ongoing business opportunities, people call us all the time. They because all the time about like, Hey, we're hosting a food truck festival. Give me your list of black on food trucks, You know, so it just creates ongoing business opportunity. So the cool thing is, we kind of talked businesses like Welcome to the network because we're always able to push back our opportunities for you. So I thought to Reginald about if he wants to be identified as a black owned business, you know, at this point, there are a lot of women who say I don't want to be the best female stuff. Can I just be the best chef and I wondered if Reginald just wanted to be a business. Until people realized that you know everybody's equal. You may have to do that so we can get attention. But my whole dream is that you just treat black restaurants just like you a tree. Another restaurant. People don't believe it. But as black owned business, you have to go that extra mile. Just to prove what other people don't have to go through, and that's my dream and hopes one day did. We don't have to do that. It is black History month. That's why I thought that it would be a great opportunity to do this story. I don't have it online yet. But in about an hour if listeners go to my northwest dot com slash Rachel Bell, you can find a directory of black businesses in the region on Deacon Go. We don't support local businesses because they all need your money right now.

Interview With Emma Grede
"Emma thank you so much for coming on the show. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. How i thank you so much for having way and mary excited to talk to you about everything that you've done but first let's jump into skimming your resume so my best job was when i was like twelve and i had to pay around and it gave me my best taste of cash. Which was just wonderful pitches stopped working since then. I went through the hosted in my life working in retail. And i had always weighty being about sasha i loved that world i come from place where you know. It was really devoid of any kind of fashion obama. So i found was really gravitating towards you. Know just the beauty and the supermodels and the brands you know. As i was growing up it was all about the saatchi and chanel and families that working in designer stores in and then my first proper job of coming out of college. I studied business at the london college of fashion and went straight into fashion. Show production avow myself in this really all. Its little niche because in london guests there. Was this amazing. You know london fashion week. Where all of these brilliant designers but nobody really had the money to put on this show. So i ended up in this strange donation of sponsorship and kind of creighton bronze collaborations with the great and the good of the british fashion industry. And that's weighty. Where taught my teeth. And i think that when i think about what it is today and where i've found my success it already started in those early days of being a production company and really learning how to bridge the gap between the creative businesses that fashion all and and more commercial bronze. And so. yeah. That was it for me. That's that was the beginning of it when something that people would be surprised to know about you. Oh i mean. I guess he will probably be surprised to know like how much about makeup i am. I guess maybe that's not something that you always associated with. Somebody who's an entrepreneur like my favorite thing to do is cooking and making things nice at the house. I'm an absolute festive fruit. Like the idea that. I get thanksgiving on top of christmas. Now i'm living in america could not be a need better. I'm not get to do that. Twice is at christmas participate so right now. That's all i think about is that. What is my thanksgiving menu table. Go look greg bat. That is my job. Elevate okay so. I love opening up our questions with entrepreneurs like yourself by talking about your childhood because our childhoods shape all of us and informs ultimately who we are in in how we make decisions. I want you to paint a picture for us about how you grew up in how you think that's shaped you. Yeah it's a great question on a great more. I failed so much of may an how i behave. How i treat people have chosen to comes from my childhood and you know i had a reedy great childhood. I grew up for e kind of a poll basically in east london very deprived area. And i say it so blatantly as that is because you know. It wasn't only devoid of glamour. It was completely devoid of opportunities. Everybody in that community had lived there their entire lives and you seemingly could get out of it. It was a huge jack of opportunity. A huge lacquers education and i saw for myself in my mother who really kind of broke through an managed to create something else for. She was a single mother with four children and my mom found herself. You know working in the stock exchange becoming a trader having a job for twenty plus years at morgan stanley. And that for me was you know it was just like a gateway sunday could see that you know you could create with with a lot of hard work and today and if you really did that you get rid of that to pay off then you could really really really change your outlook very very early on i. I really believe that the harder. I what the more likely would be to get myself out of. Why soares a pretty kind of dire situation but of course when you live and you grow up like that doing something you know. I could understand it if you're a doctor lawyer or going into banking fashion just didn't seem like a way out to me and so there are times in my life where i definitely thought. Oh am i on the wrong path which is ultimately why. I went and studied business at the london college fashion. Because i believe that. If i could set that foundation in business and have this specialism fashion that at least it would ground me that if all that fun bit didn't work out. I'd still have the basics of business. And i could go and run construction company. Also something

"What about if we expanded from you and employees here to the users your products. Because i think we all know one of the great challenges of our time is finding ways escape to step away from it all a lot of that has to do because if you have an iphone with you it's like the whole world is in your hand it's all it is and it's it's a portal to the world and so you can be just about anywhere in the world comes and grabs you or you are drawn by this force to engage with. Its so as you know. The ceo of teke mini. Which people depend on your products for doing that. We're on do you feel a responsibility to those users. Just like you do to your employees to help them learn. How and when to disconnect very much. So we've we think very deeply about all the things that we create about how they're going to be used how they're going to be used in scale the great ways they'll be used the not so great ways that they can be used and so an example of that would be springtime right. We we we do not want people using our products too much. We want to to create them in such a why people get the most adam in short periods of time to free themselves up to do whatever it is that they want to do and and so screen time was away of making us aware of how much time we're spending in our technology and i think in including for me personally it was my my estimates versus the reality. Were very different and have any numbers. You remember <hes>. They were high they were was but what i did <hes>. The action i took was i started asking myself. Why do i need all these notifications. Why do i really need this <hes>. Do i really need to understand things in the moment that they're happening. And you know. And i started taking a metex out to seventies of these things that would grab my attention but need to in the in the moment such a free me up to do other things and and so yeah. I learned like i think like probably most people under estimate. How much are you sure it. And we we've never designed our products to to dominate people's lives. That's never been our purposes and it's not our business our business is to give people tools that enrich their lives and allow them to create something that they couldn't create or do something or or or you know sorta transform themselves some sort of why <hes>. We've never been into this <hes>. How how long is somebody spending on our property and less. Try to figure out a way to make that as high as possible. And how many clicks can we get we. We're not into that business model right but it is. The thing is the tool is so impressive in the design is so learning. and so. that's one part of it you know. We're naturally sort of people pick it up. It's this you know we see people have find that moment aboard. And then what people do they lean into a device and so that challenge of helping your users have that healthy relationship. I would suggest that we are still figuring that out. And not. I think just to. Maybe there's more to do and you know another example of things that we do. We give parental control so for those people that are are helping address their kids. It's a proactive way for them. To have not only conversation but also to put some rules of the road and and so we have thought deeply about each of these and we continue to do it. We're not saying we've arrived. We've got all the answers today. <hes> we innovate. They're just like we. Innovate with the latest camera system and the latest. Watch

"Told me. Put caucus to this temperature of this amount of time roasted the veggies and it was delicious and with some salad. So that's sort of the level.

I think sam you you sort of you spot on site that because it's about doing what's right for you and for your family and that is different for everyone and i watched it as i say too much time thinking i had to see the mold as opposed to. Well wait a minute. What brings me joy. And what is what they of my family and pursuing that and enjoying that rather than exhausting myself trying to do something that really is not my skill set and the interest Do you think like. I think the popularity of cooking shows over the last decade or so much and rules in master chef. And all of those d think in some ways that puts us off cooking because the caliber of those quote unquote. Home cooks is so high. I don't know puts this off. But i think it puts the pressure on that junior master. Chef you go. Oh my goodness. How did i know how to do that. How whipping all of that stuff up. But but i think what the case go full you know how the sort of just some simple meals you can do and ask people for tips. Because if i can can cook a stake now anyone can don't be daunted with asking for help saying how do i cook. Despoil what do i need to do and take the pressure off because no one really is a master chef. And i'm sure all those people on those shows cook like that when their holiday jr you know they're doing it for tv shows so take the pressure yourself and this is where we come to the conversation about mate what i love about you is. You've achieved so much in your life. Including an order of australia. Medal jessica huge but yet it took you to the age of fifty to learn how to cook steak. I sorta sad. Isn't it but no you know what now. It's not bad. Because i of course attempt temple i have staked before but i've cooked a terribly i've known to. It's been in the middle. It just hasn't been right however by talking to my local butcher and saying what kind of basti recommend what do i do all to drizzle some olive oil maybe using the term drizzle salt and pepper. And do that once. It's out of the fridge and let it sort of rest on a plight with the olive oil and salt and paper for a good ten minutes or so so it's up to room temperature and depending on the cat of make that you have and the thickness will depend on how long to cook it for so i ask people what do i do. How long do i cook it on this side full. How long do i cook it. On the other side full then hallowed. Do i rest the four and you follow those people instructions. You will have a delicious pace of strike. I have done it. And if i can do it anyone could do it fan. I mean i. I love this that you've got into you. Got excited about it. But also i think you. Can you still call yourself terrible. Cook now yes. I am still a quick housewife. Because because the thing is it's weird. I mean i love to laugh at myself. I wear it like a badge of honor but it's yes i okay. I can now do a steak. I cannot do a butterfly leg of land. I also know how not to the results and had them cooked old away through along with Hamburger patties but again. That's simply through conversation with my butcher. Who said to me do it like this. So that has been a game changer for my cooking but i'm not a corporate cook and i never will be but you know what that doesn't bother me. I don actually that. I'm not great. What i do care about is that my family enjoys. They still fit. But but you know they getting steals the basics.

"We're diving deep into warranty in Cook. Gang deep dive deep dive deep dive deep deep tidy Tidy Tidy. Tidy right well. Most of us have been stuck inside indefinitely with nothing about our terrifying thoughts and horning s to keep us company into make it worse. We haven't had the luxury of restaurants to ease the endless suffering forcing the hapless amongst us to turn on our ovens and stoves for the very first time take a bunch of Ross stuff and mix it together and turn it into stuff that you can eat without dying. Needless to say it's been a trying time for me Someone who has proudly ordered takeout for breakfast lunch and dinner in a single day on a regular basis and let's be completely clear I'm still ordering takeout. I still want to support. My local business is But also it's like such an ordeal now order delivery because I have to perform this entire decontamination and pleading ritual. Every time I get my delivery and it's like go point of takeout food into my stomach as quickly as possible and now it's ruined. The point is we're making sacrifices. Were making changes on theme with today's guest retract to cook more in. It's not been going well. Have you been cooking? Oh I've been cooking a lot. We are doing a couple of take-out meals like one or two a week but But Yeah I've been all about roasting chicken at the beginning of the week and then using the bones to make broth getting a real domestic up in here young.

I was home for like two weeks and not really working because it was kind of a vacation and I was starting to cook and enjoying it and I feel like if I didn't have that I'd be fucked right now but I'm at a point where I actually enjoy the cooking but it also means that. I've learned a lot of things to not enjoy about it as well so I'm excited to get into the steep dive. Yeah let's get into it. This is why cooking is Google.

"cook" Discussed on The Brink
"She's been hitting the drink twice as hard now we're going to finish finish up and talk about the precipitous. Drop off the brink that Thomas Cook went through and it was. This was something that happened so so suddenly that it took a lot of people by complete surprise even even people who had said Yeah. I knew that they weren't doing well. Financially were shocked at how fast this unravel rabble. Will you never think that. Somebody's just gonNA close overnight when they've got tons of people whole around the globe so how he got there in two thousand seven like we said before the break lake they had more brick and mortar locations than any other travel retailer right but the travel industry as a whole was shifting online online so quickly that that was not an asset it was actually a liability. Yes because I was all that overhead so much overhead unlike an airplane with very little overhead smashes. It's all all underfoot in two thousand eleven. The company sought out one hundred and twenty five million dollars dollars or pounds. I believe dollars Zia. Every report I saw was posted in a news journal so I just assumed that that means we're talking dollars hundred twenty five million whether it's dollars or pounds is a lot of money whole Lotta money. And they did this to tide over their cash shortage. Yes so this was like A. They're in a real serious cash crunch that they just didn't have the money to keep operations two billion dollars in debt. Yeah so this. This was essentially the keep the lights on and be able to pay their their staff. Keep in mind their staff. It's not just travel agents. We're talking about flight crews. We're talking about you know paying for the fuel for your aircraft. There's tons of things that are part of this Gargantuan business at this point and it's it's mind in boggling it. The next year the company announced it was going to restructure and in the process close two hundred of its stores and in two thousand thirteen. The company announced is that it was going to streamline by merging their airlines in Belgium Scandinavia the United Kingdom and Germany into a single division and in two thousand fifteen they a announced a strategic partnership with Chinese Investment Group called Foshan international which looked like it might have been a saving grace book like it. Looks like it wasn't the first half of two thousand eighteen. The company was seeing a huge drop off in customers. Yes and the reasons for this are are multiple like there's no one caused we can point to and say this is why people travelled less. They're actually quite a few view. Different reasons that contributed in some way shape or form for example. You probably heard if you if you're not in the UK you've definitely heard heard about if you're in the UK you're living it which `sorry the brexit process right so brexit out. Some people have argued has discouraged a a lot of travel so a lot of people not knowing what was going to be in store for them you know financially or legally just to move in and amount of countries in the EU for example they held off on holiday plans so that was one argument. Another was that in two thousand eighteen gene the UK had an unusually warm winter and in the UK. Winter is when a lot of Brits fly away to get someplace that ain't so gosh dern Dang cold and damp and grey. I one of the coldest winters I ever spent was a June in the UK. Jin Yeah. That's how cold it can get there. Wow no I was in Scotland the northern regions of Scotland and it got chilly at night. No but but yeah I. It's it's I mean I I always think about when I go to Orlando like if I go to Orlando in the summer Summer Months I see one type of Tourists all over the place but if I go in the winter months it's almost All Brits Yeah and then there are also reports of management being unconservative with their pay. Yeah no there were a lot of stories about the the top levels of management at Thomas Cook we're having some of the most Exorbitant like executive salaries and benefits. So there was a lot of stories is about the mismanagement staying that people were were overpaid for their positions. At least that was the perception. I'm not sure if that was the reality. And these these factors were compounded by the fact that by May Have Twenty nineteen hoteling gas costs. were up and that was making travel even more expensive which was cutting into the profit margin for these packages they were offering because they couldn't have the packages go up too much or people wouldn't buy them but they couldn't wouldn't have it hold at the lower levels because then they would be losing money on the deal. He's acts put them in a rough place yet. July Twenty Nineteen Thomas is cook. Group received an initial offer from sin to be purchased yet again again so the that was something that the company was considering by August. Two Thousand Nineteen. They entered into a rescue package. which would give Tourism Control of the Thomas Cook Group tours tours and vacations. That would give Thomas Cook Airlines to creditors and bondholders and this package was nine hundred million pounds. So this little like this might be able to keep the company going for that just under a billion pounds amount. But it wasn't no because another punch was right around the corner. Yeah just a month later. Creditors are demanding an additional two hundred million pounds in funding. They were worried that two thousand nineteen The winter of two thousand nine hundred two thousand twenty was going to be a repeat of two thousand eighteen which we live in the south. And it's been a very hot September October ninety seven degrees degrees and October fourth. When we record this so not completely unfounded but that meant that the additional two two hundred million was beyond what I was willing to to negotiate and the deal essentially fell through and it by falling through the company crumbled? Yes they went into immediately predation. This one hundred and seventy eight year old company closed its doors overnight and the big part of the problem that you've probably heard about if you've been paying attention to the news regarding Thomas. Cook is that more than half a million people were. We're on a Thomas Cook vacation while this happened Collie and you're talking about immediately ceasing operations. Which means that airline airline doesn't exist anymore which meant thousands of people no longer had a way home? You had folks who are trapped all over the place and this is when in the UK government had to look into how to fix this for at least the UK citizens. Now keep in mind. There was like six hundred thousand. People were on vacation nation only ballot. I say only still huge number of people about one hundred sixty thousand of those were British citizens and everybody else's candidacy plum out of luck You at least for this particular solution and that solution was that the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority would start a repatriation peacetime program. Called operation. Matterhorn man. I guess it takes some of the sting out that you're gonna a half to depend upon your home country's government to get you back home if you're told that it's part of Operation Matterhorn. Eating a fun Disney ride. I mean at least it gives gives it something like romantic as opposed to get me the hell home does give you something pleasant sounding. Tell your grandchildren. Yeah and It was funny because I was actually reading news articles written about this whole experience and for some people it was very it was. It was frustrating trading stressful It was confusing and perplexing but for some people they got an unexpected a crazy upgrade to their experience because the CIA was chartering flights from pretty much any available airline that had aircraft craft and some of them were luxury airlines. Joe Order flights hard nicer and the these were. I mean these were like commercial jets these ed but in some cases they were commercial jets. They're meant for luxury flights. Where you might end up in a luxury suite type situation that normally would cost you? Thousands sounds and thousands of dollars but because it was the government that was kinda coming in and swooping it up. You didn't have any extra cost. It was them trying to get you home. I I hope that the people who found themselves in that situation would be able to enjoy the unexpected benefit through all the stress well and a lot of them also expressed a deep sense of empathy for the crew and the staff of Thomas. Cook there the over and over. I read reports about how they wanted to make it clear that they were not blaming. Any of the people who worked there for what was happening wasn't their fault right but that it was and there were also reports that talked about how the flight crews Thomas Cook flight crews new.
"cook" Discussed on The Brink
"Dot com code four four four and joy so we're back areas a little tipsy but We're now we're going to continue with the story of Thomas Cook. By the time we get into the nineteen twenties The grandsons of Thomas Cook John's three three sons. Yes deal at that time. I think they in turn were ready to retire right so the family business was about to no longer. Maybe a family business. That is correct. They sold Thomas Cook. Goodness to the Companion International Day a a declined express Europeans. That was horrible. It was a good attempt at a Frenchaccent. I haven't done French since seventh grade. No well there's was that whole Renaissance Festival time where you played a French versus accent and fringes Asian different things. You're so yes So this French comes in and see WWL. Then they purchase the Thomas Cook Company. Some people say the the reason why this happened was that the cooks grandsons were concerned with the financial health. Long Term Health of the Thomas Cook Company and that they wanted to get out while the game was good. C. I. WWL had another high-profile Company under under a like a name and travel. That is infamous right. That would be the Orient Express would say it's almost more infamous in literature. Yes because murder on the Orient Express obviously but yes as the Orient Express us the same company that owns the Orient Express but the WWL L. would not hold onto Thomas Cook for very long not as long as the family owned now within less than in less than twenty years. Germany occupied Belgium. Yes which is where the headquarters for. CI WWL and that was because World War Two happening. This and the British government stepped in yes and nationalized. Thomas Cook folding it into British railways. And this is not not that different. From what the United States did in the outbreak of World War One when they essentially appropriate all the radio stations which is how we get our say right so which is again you can kind of understand it from a national security standpoint right. You cannot have a major transportation company Being operated by a foreign power during a time of war it just doesn't it doesn't make sense from a national security standpoint says why the UK government nationalized. Thomas Cook and after that because after war people want to save money you know. They started losing income. They start losing revenues because people wanted more economical travel packages and Thomas Cook did sort of focus on the middle class in providing reasonably priced travel trips. Yeah but they were having a hard time keeping up with this this cheaper demand and on top of that you know they're government run. Governments are slow to make change governments. Don't have to respond to the market. The same way that a private company. What and so there were some really some big issues with how the government was running this You know their their goal was not to. They had different priorities than a private company would so it's not that it was necessarily worse. It was just different and not necessarily early. What customers were wanting exactly so that problem got solved when a bank a hotel restaurant group in an auto group walk into a bar? Why why the long face they ban banded together and they decided that they would purchase essentially the Thomas Cook from the British? I government making it a private company again that was in the nineteen seventies and this was again where the company was mainly focused on these all inclusive of packages. Right you you you buy the whole holiday from Thomas Cook and you don't have to worry about anything and because you had the auto company yet the hotel well and Roll Restaurant Company. You had a bank in there. They were able to meet a lot of those with their own resources. And whatever they didn't have they could end up partnering with other other companies it just makes everything. More streamlined yes in the nineteen eighties. Thomas Cook had a pretty big presence in the US do to traveler's checks because they were actually one of the first companies to ever operate traveler's checks or or a precursor to them. They were so big that they even opened a computer center her in the United States and yet I still hadn't heard of that. I was about to say by the early nineteen nineties. They were one of the world's leading foreign exchange retailers colors. They had acquired a company called international which he got them to that point and then they were acquired by a different Combo Group of businesses. So the the hotel restaurant group the bank and the auto companies sold it to a different bank and travel conglomerate. Yeah somebody this time of for companies this time to Westdeutsche Landesbank thus deutschlandfunk. Listen why did you let me say if you could say better west L. B. and the Lt not you group which was an airline like it's do instead of Deutsche wait In one thousand nine hundred ninety two they then acquired a bank subsidiary Inner Payment Services Ltd in ninety four and that made them the largest supplier of traveler's checks outside the United States and then they sold their travel management business to Amex which gave Amex about ten percents of Thomas. Cook's annual revenue. They really were deciding. They needed to start. Yeah when we've seen this many times where a company you know it diversifies to the point where it realizes no now. We need to cut back back on some areas because we've lost so much focus that we're not able to to function properly. Well this is just the tip of they're going back to a single focus. Oh Yeah Yeah No. We're GONNA get a lot worse before. Well it doesn't get better spoiler alert. It does not get better it just keeps getting worse. Well it gets slightly better for a little bit because in Nineteen ninety-five Lt. You the airline that was in partnership with West L. B. In owning Thomas Cook bowed out. And so we're still be bought a whole bunch of different travel operations airlines tour groups and things like that and roll them all into the company under the brand. GMC Vert John Mason. Cook Thomas Cook Son and then then took those properties and made their own airline. Yeah this would also ended up being a big part of the problem if you year. It's it certainly would so They also ended up launching a website in nineteen ninety seven and we're one of the first companies somebody's infect the I travel agency in the UK to offer travel packages that you could purchase online so that you a lot of these companies when we talk about them this. This is the sort of thing that we tend to point out and say as bring right that they failed to adapt to changing times at least said that as far as web access the wet the ability to purchase things online as cook was on the frontline yeah but other elements of that changing landscape would be things they could could not compete with exactly once we reach the two thousand. Thomas Cook decided to pare down their focus to just travel so they sold their financial division service and they sell their foreign exchange service to travel ex and so then TRAVELEX also would be able to use the Thomas Cook branding on and Their checks for five years as part of this deal so it was just smart. Yeah kind of trading on that name also just to make that transition a little less rocky for for anyone who is actually using those things so that that helped a bit That same year. They finalize the sales of the divisions they also got acquired heard again again by condor and neckermann touristic ag. In Germany. I teach you get the easy one to say because I saw it ahead of time and and I jumped on it China then so he became Thomas Cook. AG At this point and to me it's amazing how many times this company had been through the different mergers and acquisitions not done yet. But before we get to their next acquisition they launched their airline in two thousand three officially Thomas Cook Airlines. And then we get back into the mergers acquisitions and name changes. This one actually is possibly the most important one of all Thomas Cook's history In Two thousand seven they merged with another company they might travel group P. L. C.. And this time the company would be known as Thomas Cook Group Group P l c the name that they ended with and this was it was meant to expand the reach of Thomas Cook to new regions that otherwise they they had not had a lot of presence in Scandinavian countries and they were doing it in an effort to also kind of consolidate things and alternately save some money yeah they're hoping these moves would save them about seventy five million pounds ear. Yeah and then. They also merged operations with a An organization called Cooperative Group and the Midland's cooperative society and by combining all these they became the large became became Mecca. Yeah travel agents exactly the largest chain of travel agencies in the United Kingdom. They had more than twelve hundred physical shops most of them located in what. The Brits called the High Streets High streets are like the shopping districts. But here's the problem we've seen over and over again how mergers and acquisitions often the process is an incredibly expensive one and often you're also looking combining the debt of two sometimes very large organizations which means you've got even more debt to deal with. That was the case with this merger well and then on top of it. You've got the travel industry changing to more online and they've got all of these shops. Yeah so you've got overhead overhead. You've got a billion dollars in debt by about twenty ten. That's about twice as much as what Thomas Cook had in two thousand seven before just as this merger was taking place lease You had the fact that online. It wasn't just that you could book things online. A lot of the the grunt brought work. That travel agents would do had become much easier to do yourself online and that's true so yeah so like the the the reason y the average person would go to a travel agent was largely because I find this process intimidating. I want to hand it off to someone who knows what they're looking king for the already know the the reputable places but with the Internet suddenly doing that research became much easier and in fact for a certain the type of person. It's fun I sometimes enjoy it lately. Remember last couple of trips. I've used a travel agent because it's I mean they don't cost me anything usually. Yeah they they get paid through partnerships with hotels and things like that and so I find it much more a relaxing to say. Here's what I want. Fi means something within my budget. You know. I have never stated that Amazing Murder Hotel if.
"cook" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Menu
"After fifteen years in London and a few Michelin Stars under his belt. The bogies chef newnham indices returning to his native Lisbon to launch bar. A restaurant in the newly opened Bairo Ulcer Hotel Monaco's Guy Elliott Smith Nuno the restaurants to talk about his trajectory and how it feels to come back home. She started by asking him to reflect on Portuguese. Cuisine has changed over the years. I think the way chefs are looking for. Cheap foods changed a lot. I think the public is more aware or like curious about what we offering spring. And I think you know the tourists that come here they WANNA know. They WANNA learn Portuguese food. I think that we're now very proud to show our heritage to to to speak about our products to champion our tradition. That's really changed the landscape at the moment you know. I think the city is looking very exciting. Speaking of Lisbon speaking about Portugal. I mean I think the country's very you know it is going through exciting stage. There's a lot of Portuguese pride but a positive sense of pride not a nationalistic pride. There's a really a nice sense of pride. The very positive sense of pride we're very eager to show and to to tell our stories. This is boosting confidence. The people producing the food and everyone the food chain that people are doing projects like you know. Hotels restaurants shops craftsman are getting reinvigorated. So there's a real buzz around Portugal Google and I feel like that's pushing from food point of view. I think this really pushing food forward you know I think more and more of us are now not afraid to say we're doing issues food. My next question I wanted to ask you know is about what you're bringing here from. London what have you learned in your fifteen years there that can be applied here and vice versa too because I think there must be something. Even though the restaurant scene is much more developed in London there must be interesting things about the way things are done in Portugal. Since take back Portugal's tradition. Can you know. I think that I don't necessarily the Casino in the K.. Is Empty but I feel like regional. Cassini has so many more layers because we have so much more tradition so like off. We have a very long history of different of traditions food rations for three or four hundred years and of course that existing U K. But it's less less present and the day today. I mean like here you know like I mean a lot of dishes date. We still eat are very old dishes. I mean this is something that we eat you know. Go to any Toshka you go to. I mean to restaurants today. You still see those dishes. I feel like I like the work that has been doing a dinner. Or maybe the work that the FERGUS did was in John's. I mean the probably one of the few people really looking at tradition British tradition. I feel like here is more. Everyone has that in the tip of their tongue. So there's a little more familiarity with that so I think that's that's something that I can always take with me. You know and I feel like when I go there. Having come from Lisbon I feel I get really excited about doing more of distribution the things that are longer taking longer to cook things that really melt together like I feel like that really excites me. Food cooking like that. You know I think here we can cook like that. We can and put a modern twist to it but can still cooking that way I think over there is very for that style cooking. You know so I think we can bring that there. We'll see London is an amazing city To Cook into I mean the products are no diversity. There's a really interesting pantry at the moment I mean there's the technique is very good like this very good professionals. I think I bring a lot of my experiences experiences and from there from I mean really. It's not even just fifteen years in. London is really thirty years of almost living outside of Portugal. You know that's really what I'm bringing with me like. I mean it's more I would much much broader than not going to ask you a bit about your sort of cooking. LETHEM's what is it that you would say visiting distinctive of your style of even that's and and what is it that you're bringing to the these restaurants because it's not just one restaurant right it's four. We've closely different concepts here. I mean it's really. I always struggled to evaluate wake. You know like I mean I feel like it's you know what I bring to the table. I mean look I have my own journey for me. Cooking's very personal so whatever I bring to the table. Apple has to be reflective of my experience. You know. Try to things that I'm connected with them that I'm passionate about my dreams. My reality my experiences. My My my journey. I think that's what's driving that. That's what you see when you come and visit me now here in London amused. So that's what manifest itself in the projects that I do. I like like things that are unconventional. I like taking risks. You know which is not necessarily a wasting time but like but it is I think at the same time I. I think it's important thing to do. Because you know I try not to follow trends. I tried to do things on my own like things that I believe in and again have something that is really personal and kind of that can be connected with and I feel like that's the sometimes. This is the lack of honesty in cooking at times. You know like where. It's very much about technique and very much about like arrogance of so you know. I think I just wanted to cook things and I want an honesty about the experienced the way the US our guests. You know if you're going to sort of speak about new things do it in context were feels like engaging people rather than sort of making him feel sort of Intimidated or alienated by. Is there a the sense that you know. There's all picked up in your professional experience for sure and that adds a lot of weight. Is there a sense of coming back to Portugal. Sort of the thing of the grandmother's recipe the memories. Sure that's an even though there's levels sophistication what we're serving upstairs in this building. I still feel like the soul of it is still from there from processing from that point from my grandmother from like you know because that's now one of the things for me one of the biggest like when I said that I wanted to. I decided at one point that I would love to come back. Something something in Lisbon. I wanted to do something Portugal I said I wanted to do. I don't WanNa work with a product that I'm never able to get outside of Portugal At the level of freshness at the level of quality that I can get here and then I wanna I wanna blow back into my roots. You're not gonNA bring that onto the table until a story that is connect to me that that really flavors those flavors that I grew up eating the things that really got me excited about food I want to bring those back table can be Kennedy. Translate that a bit more concretely. Lately into some of the dishes. You've chosen for this menu in the sense of if you could just take me through a few dishes that perhaps are very traditional here or very significant to you or just. Tell me why I why you chose them specifically here. I like you know like one of the dishes. Though they have is Is Very simple is a percents on. Toast Goose Barnacles on toast very simples little snack. I mean it's the simplest snack in the world literally like you peel the processes and you toss him a little bit of butter and a drop him on butter toast. It's nothing complex about Eh. That reminds me of my childhood feeding Sabres with Nice to bread on the beach and tasting. That like you know which is something that you know services so hard to find outside. I'm like that's it's a luxury in a sense. You know it's not necessarily what you associated with luxury but but that expires tweet. Something so actually taking the time of actually serving into you or peeled and season than I mean. That's something that is very much looking back. You know. We have a dish of mushrooms with Quinn Rather Quintana. There's such a you know. I spent so much much time delay and television and and I love the flavors deleon tangent. Remember heating the coriander garlic and coriander the bees like you know the Quinta. There's like you know like I mean it's it's for me like that's I can close my eyes and think back at my grandmother but yeah it gives me great pleasure to be able to do that here. Some of these things have been have made appearances says elsewhere elsewhere in London. But you so much you so disconnected from this reality. That is a very different. You know the were you present. Even though he presented he can tell. The story just doesn't capture people's imaginations is as much as it does here because you this is it. I mean like I'm probably like two kilometers away or if maybe less from where I was born this closest. I've been to my birthplace to where I grew up in life that I lived at basically that that made me curious about about food. That taught me how to appreciate food. That's propelled me to go in this crazy journey. I'm here like a this is. I'm back to my roots and now I'm looking. I think I'm also at a stage in my life because children family you know my father passed away my like. My grandmother passed away like I think I now will carry the torch right and also like try to be more focused in what I what I WANNA do. And focus on these things premier. So they're not just Williams is a real sort of real passion of mine. They really things that are coming from the heart.

"cook" Discussed on The Alien Chronicles
"Yeah there's obviously commissions on <hes> in a lot of kitchens for women thankfully actually i've never been part of those kitchens. I've been extremely fortunate to work. Some of the most amazing employer does amusing companies rescue matters and nothing else matters hello and welcome to the idiom chronic coups. Today i have our first chef on the show and i'm so excited and we will let to introduce yourself hi. I'm haya and i'm currently working at eleven madison fog. I'm from pakistan and that's pretty much. It and you've done a lot. Ah other things you have cleared at some of the most prominent restaurants. Can you name a few. I mean last year. I took a year off and i was just feeling a different restaurants trying trying to see what was <hes> catching my interest. When i quit my job at join george i just wanted something different. I went to per se <hes> in london. I was at ramseys. You know a bunch the restaurant owner dan just trying them out and you as you send you from by gaston. You grew up in karachi as i was prepping for your interview i read that your i love for food and cooking is influenced by your grandmother and she taught you lake these leaks the nuances of flavors and spices. Can you talk a little bit about that. I mean when i was growing up. I was always a fat hungry. Kids eating and i still love eating and my grandmother was an exceptional cook. She could really dig the smallest simplest of ingredients and make something really amazing with it and i learned a lot from her like i regret not learning a lot more but i think the first thing she taught me how it goes like these soft soft scrambled eggs which my grandfather would eat you know and i would eat a lot of excellent. I was young. She taught me how to make this banana kelly casalan which is like banana how started in <hes> brown butter and some heavy cream delicious you like you can't go wrong with that. I still that sometimes if i have any bananas you know all right. It's pretty great yeah you know. She was a great influence. My mom is a really good cook but she doesn't love cooking. Oh she's like me. I don't like i don't i love cooking. I i actually i just even dislike looking. I don't know like my sister. She doesn't feel like cooking is important like <hes> she she hasn't she gets by just fine without cocaine. I think it's a life skill. I think it's important to know like that. You don't starve if you have a stock somewhat but not everyone the needs to heart attack. What will we do as shops. Everybody knows how to cook really well. That's true so what pops up in your mind when you think about your grandmother's cooking spicy flavor something that just reminds you of her cooking. I mean i think more than cooking of welcoming a stance on food. I don't think anybody ever entered a house or hull house and left hungary and i think that really stuck with me. It's very important like that's how i show. Love and affection and friendship to people like feeding people is more important and then the food itself. Does that make sense the hospitality bit so pakistani culture is like that by signing culture just centers around food and hospitality not and a woman is supposed to cook great food and she takes pride in it yet. We see that may cooking. Being a chef is not a great profession for women in pakistan. Do you find it hypocritical. Honestly no. I feel like most of the reason why being a chef. It's just a lot really hard on a human when being like it's a lot 'cause you're cooking. Professionally is a lot different then cooking at home right. <hes> it requires a lot more is it takes a lot of strain on your body. The timings will walk out. Let's talk about the d._a.'s lake. Weekends are the busiest times so i generally think like <hes> yeah. There's obviously discrimination in a lot of kitchens for women thankfully. I've never been bought those kitchens. I've been extremely fortunate to work for some of the most amazing employers amusing companies. It's a rescue martyrs nothing else matters but i also think like a lot of people choose not to be part of that lifestyle you know and not just females. I see a lot of men and women come to this side of the profession and then they're like we can't do this. We don't want to do this. It's not they can't they. Just don't don't want to because it's too much so what was motivation behind your decision to pursue this as a career. I'm a little pig headed so once. I decide to do something thing it's do or die. It doesn't matter what the consequences are and i think i'm on the warpath to that <hes> so yeah and how did your parents react when you told them the because i again i was reading about you and it seems like within span off your you dropped out of business school and law school and you decided to pursue the spots offs and i am just interested and in fact curious to know how your building's reacted to your decision. My bands are extremely supportive like the. I'm extremely extremely fortunate and lucky the adore me. They're supportive of every decision. I take the voter bit hesitant about like who's obviously nobody. I come from the oh you know like a conservative business reoriented family. You know like where women's where either business or like a typical profession my sister's a corporate lawyer my brothers into business so like like me saying like i wanna call is like profession like what's the school you know like. Did they use the sentence gathered in poverty not one. Did you see my friends and made fun of because there's actually nov tom in all do for professional cook. It's like bob achieve khazanah. Dan you know all these words and they always i obviously you know a little bit on me but my benz like more of the semantics game how how is gonna work. What are the career prospects. How would you like. You have nothing to follow but i did. Try the normal route where i took business cool but but i just wasn't into it like i'm not made for a desk job. I love working with my hands. I love. I just love cooking like i wanted to do this at that time i was. I didn't know quite white exactly what i was getting into. You know like i couldn't ever imagine it would be this hard or it would require such commitment. You know it was like more like like ratatouille and like julia. Julia will like you when you're little stove. Cooking school was more about like washing dishes and throwing garbage scrubbing garbage guns and mopping and sweeping the floor which i'd actually never done in my life a how is reality different from what your perception of being a chef was ause and then when you talk about how hard it is <hes> i've i've spoken to other shafts and they talk about because of the nature of this walk. It gets isolating it. It is an isolating profession and then you have long hours and some people suffer from depression and have you started around you. And how do you think people deal with things like that. I think having a good kitchen family is very important. You know like if you're talking about depression and isolation. The company in the restaurant you work for is very important like i said i have been extremely lucky. I used to work for george before now. I work for eleven madison. You know chefs. Are you know when it when you do something wrong. They dig big big what you know. They're not gonna like be kind. That's the nature of the job. People pay a lot of money and come to celebrate some really important occasions like these people would make reservations for months in advance. It's a meal for lifetime for that so just because your catalyst chefs nagano you know just let you get away with it because it matters. You're only as good. What is your last meal. Put bad food on your plate. You don't care about who i am. You care about that food. You know so yeah. They get really upset <hes> but you know otherwise they're extremely supportive always like watching out for you as even colleagues we always watch out for each other like making sure the other person's having is not too isolated. No matter how lead we end we always go to a bar. You know have a drink and mike is a ginger ale or whatever not like in the beginning. I never would go out komo drinks. I'm like you know. It's no point in like an all. You can always have ginger bill. It's great and i'm like true and i started going and you know it's real kitchen family like but it's still great. It's a veigh tight knit family and <hes> but for some restaurants it's hard for some people. It's hard yeah and now talking about eleven madison. I'm assuming there aren't and many signing chefs walking at fine dining places in the u._s. I may be making an assumption. I don't know but that's how i see it. So how does does your cultural piece affect your interactions with with your clients. Honestly in dozen pakistan's pretty popular thanks to on us. You know we all yeah. It's no longer a problem i have to tell by. Pakistan is the on all day all know it and <hes> debate curious about it. I love the food whenever bye bye koko for them so you know i think it's a great icebreaker. It's never been an impediment or problem and talking about food. That's served at <unk> at these fine dining restaurants. Eleven madison is like world renowned restaurant and there are many others but what i see is most of them are they're centered around <hes> french cuisine and french cooking i don't and then there are a few that will have japanese cuisine but i don't see many many that have other eastern cuisines fine dining restaurants. Why do you think that is the case actually. I don't think that's the case anymore. Because if you look tall you have to look at the nuances there's actually a little french left french all technique no you don't if you look at a menu. You'll see like different. Ones is like you know last last season. I think it was the fall many we were solving dasa e._m._p. You know something a. M. v. and i thought it was brilliant. You know i was is actually one of the guys he worked in his mother's recipe. You know influences can come now on just restricted like everyone food who'd is fusion now but it's very subtle like you'll see tomb raider masala curry powder wasserman curry powder and i'm like what are we using this for like something ridiculous killers. There's so many japanese influences so as long as you can make the pitch of fit together like we have this crab dish now which has caught him. I never thought of putting cardamom and crap together and that way and it's delicious it's amazing and so i feel like where does come from the portion thout asian influence. Someone's like definitely. Is there anything specific that you introduced or you would like to introduce from pakistani cuisine. I mean definitely flavors but it's for me. I've just i working six months ago. We have this cook battle every six <hes> like every season and if you get selected like chef fix something from it i have not yet been selected but yeah i think that's a way to do it but <hes> it's really hard to marry those flavors because at john george cordray was that day to a lot of spice more spice oriented and for me cooking all awad spice like at least the pakistani. What is your some of your favorite spices spices. I love cooking with beppo. I feel like i saw underrated red pepper black pepper like st of lab. I feel like it's so underrated underrated. It brings so much food that ginger you know i think a little bit of turmeric goes along where i mean cassani cooking and i- despite the fact that i don't liked to cook i cook almost every other day the spices that i use that i was taught alex staple force spices are like you have turmeric. You have red pepper but you have coriander powder and then you have salt. Those are the phone the cuban no i don't i don't use it as often as as i would like to but i will just use like cumin azziz and not in a spice foam for me. It blows my mind like i feel like i've studied so much. I walked in so many restaurants. Astronomy tried my best to loan but one thing i still can't wrap my head around is in pakistani food. Everything has salt pepper limit a bit of tumor nicholas eventually powder a little bit of cumin powder a little bit of yet. Everything's disor different like yes. Everything like john george. I would cook a lot from my chef executive chef chef mok and he would ask me the recipes that kiowa did you put in this shot. I put a little human. I put this. It's always the same but it always is either. You're lying or you're not telling me what it is. I'm like i swear to you literally the same pink. I don't know how it is different. It's even the ingredients are similar like you'll have onions and tomatoes and you will just fry the onions and lizzy pakistani unequal it like it makes me laugh like people see michael pakistani food and they literally laugh because i think the only time i fry from scratch is when i'm making kitchen is that's what i liked to have like fresh fried onions on top because i love masala country. That's my comfort. I've never eaten that. I i don't know i never my mom. My grandmother used to make it for me like masala kitchen because i love masada to you on like fresh salon. Throw like oreo massage like fried onions on top. I love that but but other than that it's like packaged fried onions all the way and package a ginger garlic paste like we have this lady who comes the wine cooks for us sometimes and and she goes say how are you a chef. Do us like like the sean you know ginger garlic discipline because it's convenient yeah and you cooking all day long i i. I don't how much of a difference i'm not an elitist stuck up. When it comes to using shorts hundred percent use them you went to culinary institute institute of america right now. There are some people who would argue that there is no need to go to a culinary institute or school to learn cooking. What is that you learned fed that you think you would not have learnt otherwise. I actually don't think it's important go to culinary school. Either time. I was a career change. I didn't know anybody. I had nobody for you to follow. Also i had no chaining. I had gone to a very so hotel in pakistan and i've logged there but were there..

If you can't explain your idea to five year old you'd WanNa send yourself because it's too complicated then you're not completely sure enough.
