Get ready to go BACK! Back in time through food!?
On today's episode of the podcast we welcome author Flora Ahn to the show to discuss her latest book "A Spoonful of Time".
This book will warm your heart and provide you with all the recipes you need to fill your stomach!
Seriously though, Joe & Florah get into a fantastic discussion about representation, food, ancestry, and how we can continue to learn from older generations (and others) when we take the opportunity to sit down with them, over a meal, and listen.

About 'A Spoonful of Time'
Maya’s grandmother, Halmunee, may be losing her memory, but there’s something almost magical about the way she cooks. Whether Halmunee serves salty miyeokguk or sweet songpyeon, her stories about Korea come to life for Maya.
Then one day, something extraordinary happens: a single delicious bite of patbingsu transports Maya and Halmunee back into one of Halmunee’s memories. Suddenly they’re in Seoul, and Halmunee is young.
This is just the first of many secrets Maya will uncover: that she and her grandmother can time-travel, and they aren’t the only ones with this ability. As Maya eats her way through the past, her questions multiply—until a shocking discovery transforms everything she thought she knew about family, friendship, loss, and time itself.
A middle grade novel about 13-year-old Maya who discovers she can travel across time through her Halmunee's memories by cooking Korean treats. A reimagined version of The Golden Orchard.
