My guest today is a modern pioneer in the kitchen who has spent the last 20 years teaching friends and fans alike how to make nourishing recipes using traditional methods and seasonal ingredients and stock pantries with homemade staples. She’s also a social media phenomenon. Her video channel has over 49 million views and nearly one million subscribers. Penguin Random House published her recipes in The Modern Pioneer Cookbook, and it reached number 7 on the Publishers’ Weekly Bestsellers List.
A self-described “former New York City girl” who discovered the simple life, she lives in the Texas Hill Country outside of Austin with her sweet husband, Ted, and their lovable yellow lab, Indy. Their son, Ben, is just a drive away and often visits by the kitchen fireplace for holiday celebrations, board games, and cozy family meals. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Mary Bryant Shrader.
