Episode 19 - Grandmas Project, sharing grandmas' recipes and stories around the world
Today in episode 19, Jonas Pariente is sharing his perspective on food and telling us about his project: "Grandmas Project", a collaborative web-series sharing the recipes and stories of grandmas around the world, filmed by their grandchildren. It all started in 2013 when Jonas realized he could tell more than his family's story. Not only could he share his grandmothers' food, recipes and cultures, but also those of dozens others who shared his love of food and cultural heritage. Capturing the diversity of the cultures and the unity of families, around food, is universal. So the Grandmas project was born. I hope you enjoy the episode and I'll leave you with Jonas's and his grandma's words of wisdom: "cooking takes time" and "the more I cook, the happier I get!" Click here to learn more about his story. Watch the first 12 videos on the website. Follow them on facebook – twitter – instagram And support them if you want more!

Episode 14 - Healthy food for a healthy brain
Today I am talking to you about a documentary I saw featuring international researchers studying the impact of food on our brains. I'll discuss what I've seen and learned, especially how processed foods can affect our daily behaviors at any age and the impact it has, at any age, not only on ourselves but on people around us. Because a lack of good nutrients and vitamins has such an impact on our daily behaviors, it is important for us individually but also as a group to realize how much can change when we nourish ourselves in a better way. Finally I'll tell you what kind of diet seems to be most helpful for our brain to function well.

Episode 0 - Here we go!
Hello, everyone, this is Virginie and this is episode zero of What Gets You Cooking. I am launching this podcast today to create a community around the food we eat. I would like to share with you what we do to make it easy and more simple when cooking. This is really about interviewing the people who work around food from chef to Food Bank, to cooking school to farmers, to help us simplify the food and to share our perspectives. My inspiration comes from my family. I grew up in the south of France and my mom and my grandmother cooked a lot, so it's a part of my identity and why it's important to me. Since I moved to the US in 2010. I've heard so many people expressing not having time or energy to cook, people who don't feel good in their bodies, or people who have kids that are picky eaters. that's why I'd like to share my own knowledge but also to take the time to get more knowledge from all the people that I can find to interview so we can learn from them too.
