I know a lot of you are fans of Threadbanger, Indy Mogul, Anthony Carboni, and Bobby Miller's web shows. Last weekend, about 25 of us flew down to North Carolina for Threadbanger's Rob and Corinne's wedding. Justin Johnson made this gorgeous video of the weekend.
Meet and Eat with Rebecca of Working Class Foodies
On average, a lunch special in New York City costs $8. Multiply that by 365 and it’s nearly $3000! Multiply that by 3 and it’s $9000 – we didn’t even need a calculator.
Granted, NYC is notoriously expensive and those who choose to live there must accept they will bleed money with every step they take on its bustling sidewalks. But across the country, food prices in general are on the rise, and “eating healthy” seems like a privilege reserved for the wealthy (rhyme alert). In fact, a recent AP article discussed new U.S. nutritional health guidelines, and the common idea that limited budgets directly translate to poor eating habits.
Sounds like someone hasn’t heard about Working Class Foodies.
Working Class Foodies is a show devoted to making healthy eating affordable. Rebecca is the fearless captain/writer/producer/editor at the helm of WCF. She recognized a serious lack of options for people cooking on a modest budget, and her remedy was this show. Four seasons later, WCF has been nominated for multiple Tasty Awards and Rebecca is currently developing a cookbook for Gotham Books.
In the beginning, she didn’t even write many of her recipes down. Now, you can go to the Working Class Foodies Blog and download a whole bundle! We recommend the Blintzes Blitz collection.
Organic-friendly places like farmers markets are tough for people shopping on a tight budget. Whether you qualify as one of these folks or not, Working Class Foodies can help you build meal plans that are local, seasonal and, most importantly, affordable. Plus, she has two adorable dogs as her co-hosts – who doesn’t love dogs? Answer: nobody.
Enjoy this grill-side chat with Rebecca and then head over to the Working Class Foodies channel to check out more ways to eat organic on the cheap.
The nice people at Hungry Nation are so nice.
Last week, we posted a photo of our homemade breakfast: a sunny side-up egg over a bowl of potato and chorizo hash.
You guys responded so enthusiastically to the photo, we turned it into a full-blown episode of the show. Click above to watch!

Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick’s Day
Whether you’ll be swilling artificially green beer or not, you’re gonna need something to soak up all that alcohol. Our recipe for Irish Soda bread is simple and affordable and immensely adaptable - we studded a batch with fresh chives, which you can then slice open while still warm, slather with butter, and fill with a soft-scrambled egg and some cheddar cheese for a hearty holiday snack. Erin go bragh, etc, etc.
One of my favorite things about Working Class Foodies is the look of the show, all thanks to our fantastic director/cinematographer, Kit Pennebaker. Last summer, he shot this video chronicling NY-by-way-of-the-South restaurant The Redhead’s annual crawfish boil, one of my personal favorite NYC food events. The food at The Redhead is every bit as good as it looks, and frankly it’s just an absolutely gorgeous video.
Hanukkah ain’t over yet, and latkes (potato pancakes to you) are awesome all year round. Check out our simple, affordable, delicious family recipe for classic potato pancakes…the only recipe you’ll ever need.
This is one of my favorite episodes of the show because both my grandparents died this year. My grandpa’s latke recipe is a wonderful memento of his life, but having him and my grandma healthy and happy on video is a little time capsule for my family. I’m so glad we made this video and so glad I can share my grandfather’s recipe with all of you, too.
