Finding Home with Fanny Singer

Fanny Singer eats a green salad every day. Her ritual begins with the washing of lettuce: rinsing in cold water, a few times, then scattering across a tea towel and rolling said towel like biscuit dough into a cinnamon roll. The cinnamon roll, or ‘lettuce baby’ as it’s known in the Singer/Waters kitchen, is then tucked into the fridge until it’s time to eat. It’s these little windows of detail - gentle guidance mixed with whimsy - that Fanny shares in her recent memoir, Always Home. Fanny is a writer, art critic, curator, editor and co-founder of the design brand Permanent Collection, and daughter of the chef, educator and organic farming champion Alice Waters. Singer spent over a decade studying and living in England, but has recently returned home to Northern California. We explore the concept of home in this episode, through travel, words, memory, our senses, and of course salad and soup. And we’ll discover how it feels to find home, wherever you go, on this episode of The Food Podcast.
