Episode 01 | Picnic Like a Heroine, Part 1: Blissfully Sticky with Katy Carr

Who was the mystery heroine who picknicked like a boss and taught us that the bar should be set at “blissfully sticky”? Get your red checkered blanket ready to roll, because we can’t wait to talk all things heroine and picnics.



No one picnics as blissfully as a heroine. In this show, we give props to Katy Carr, of What Katy Did: She knew how to elevate the ploughman’s lunch to something magical. 

We reveal the captivating history of the picnic, dating back centuries, and urge you not to go bananas like the Victorians (so no “epic collar of calf’s head''). Finally, we offer tips on how to pick a setting like a heroine, and ponder how our friend Natalie’s suitor was able to make fettuccine alfredo on the side of a mountain. 

Katy’s Mini Molasses Pies:

Episode 00 | From Anne Shirley to Zora Neale Hurston: An Introduction to a Foodie/Bookish Podcast

Why did Anne of Green Gables invite her minister over for cold tongue? What was up with Ma’s Spider Pan in Little House on the Prairie? And why were the heroines obsessed with currants, blancmange and calf’s foot jelly? A snappy sketch of everything the bookish stars have to teach us about how to nourish and flourish here and now.



If your bookish/foodie heart goes thump at the thought of deconstructing the picnic in Emma, the semi-murderous ingredients in Anne of Green Gables’ “liniment cake,” and the swoony sentences Maya Angelou used to describe barbeque sauce, do we have a podcast for you!

In this episode, we unpeel the show that promises to feed both your inner book geek and epicure, with segments such as: Time Travel (historical dishing), Heroine Spotlight, Cook Like a Heroine (recipes), Heroine Takeaways, Bookseller’s Daughter and Friend Recommend (book reviews), Heroine Challenges and Maud’s Mailroom. 

Do drop us a line at and tell us what excites you about learning to eat like a heroine!
