HHH015 Interview with Caroline Artiss

Episode 15 of Hilah’s Happy Hour podcast! In this fun interview with Caroline Artiss — chef, author, YouTuber — we learn about how she grew up cooking, how she was discovered by the BBC, how she ended up in California, her new book Beauty Foods, her restaurant, and her favorite British and Malaysian recipes. Near the end, Caroline offers some tips for budget cooking and meal prep. She and I have cooked together in a few videos over the years; I’ve put one of my favorites at the bottom of this page: making fruit rojak!
