Two Americans with a love for Japanese food, Allison Day and Rachael Hutchings bring you Miso Hungry, a podcast all about Japanese food.
Allison is half Japanese and grew up with Japanese-American food; Rachael spent several years living in Japan and fell in love with their food and culture. Together, they work to make Japanese food familiar and accessible to everyone.
Allison is a freelance programmer, ballet dancer, and food blogger who has lived in Los Angeles, CA her entire life. Her main blog is Sushi Day, where she writes about sushi recipes, Japanese food, and shows that sustainable seafood can be as delicious (if not more so) as the seafood that’s traditionally used in sushi. You can find her on Twitter as @sushiday, and find all of her other blogs at her personal website, CodeSwan.
Rachael lives in Corona, CA with her husband, 2 daughters, and 2 ninja cats. She is the author of the blog La Fuji Mama, which focuses on bringing world flavors to the family dinner table. Rachael has eaten her way around the world, having lived in a variety of locations, including Paris, Tokyo, Memphis, and Los Angeles. She is a self-proclaimed Japanese cuisine advocate who loves introducing people to such things as the wonders of homemade tofu, the importance of sustainable seafood, and the secrets behind making professional-looking gyoza. You can find her on Twitter @fujimama and on Facebook, La Fuji Mama.
