I’ve teamed up with my good friend Sally Swift, co-creator of The Splendid Table, on a podcast series we call “Big Appetites” because, let’s be honest, we both love to eat! It’s part of American Public Media’s Infinite Guest podcast network where you can listen to experts and enthusiasts chat about comedy, food, culture, sports, music, and so on. I am thrilled and honored to have been invited to join them.

“U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will visit the Library of Congress for the final of four 2014 Let’s Read! Let’s Move! field trips in his neighborhood, which is part of a broader initiative to engage youth in summer learning and physical activity. Deputy Librarian of Congress Robert Dizard, Jr. will give welcoming remarks, and then Duncan will join Acting Surgeon General Boris D. Lushniak, NFL Hall of Famer Quarterback Warren Moon and Chef Pati Jinich of PBS’s ‘Pati’s Mexican Table’ in reading to the students and encouraging them to stay active and healthy.

Before the reading, students will go to the Great Hall Mezzanine Level to learn more about the Library of Congress through interactive kiosks and a special presentation. At noon, Secretary Duncan and guests will read Thomas Jefferson Builds a Library by Barb Rosenstock and John O’Brien and answer students’ questions in the Thomas Jefferson Library. Following the reading, Acting Surgeon General Boris D. Lushniak will encourage children to eat healthy and be active and kick off the Let’s Move! activity with an interactive game. Let’s Move activities will continue as Chef Pati Jinich, staff from the Library of Congress Young Readers Center, the USDA Power Panther and the YMCA join in to lead the children in more games and fun. These Let’s Move! activities are inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to combat childhood obesity by emphasizing healthy eating and an active lifestyle…”

I’m beyond honored and delighted to have been able to cook for the Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House with Chef José Andrés and his incredible team from Oyamel. I had the opportunity to meet President Barack Obama, take an official photo, and chat with him. I was almost speechless! (You know that’s very uncommon for me.)
