Episode 16 – Yvonne Langen Doesn’t Do Dry January, She Does A Dry Martini

LISTEN ON APPLE PODCASTS  //  LISTEN ON GOOGLE PODCASTS

Yvonne Langen and I have been building a friendship one Sunday evening at a time over the last 6 years. We are both members of the Unputdownable Book Club and have a similarly candid approach to speaking our minds without much of a filter. This was such an enjoyable recoding, I think you can even hear it in my voice…


We touch on SO many different topics in this episode, but this will give you an idea:

THE STORY OF TASTE & TIPPLE:

  • a history of life with simple meals, turned into an obsession with fine food and drink
  • cooking her way through an influential cookbook in University
  • food as a universal language, establishing a sense of care in others
  • a giant undertaking: a blogging series that rendered 24 cocktails in 24 days


GROWING A FOOD BLOG:

  • incorporation of video / stop motion content
  • exploring different creative pursuits
  • imposter syndrome
  • how to stay motivated when the following is small?
  • measuring success in other terms, not likes or comments or follows


TURNING STRUGGLE INTO CONFIDENCE:

  • Yvonne shares about her difficult breakup that resulted in her pouring herself into other pursuits of passion
  • coming out the other side feeling like a happier, more confident person
  • a strong sense of self and how that leads to intimidation


DATING & DRINKING:

  • what NOT to order on a first date
  • Yvonne shares about her very first Tinder dating experience… spoiler: it wasn’t great
  • we take a musical interlude and get even more intoxicated
  • I merge two of my favourite worlds, alcohol and reality television, when I ask Yvonne to order off the menu of Vanderpump Rules’ new restaurant, Tom Tom


A LARGE APPETITE FOR ALL THINGS:

  • Taste & Tipple celebrates a lust for life, bringing pleasure back into food and drink in a world that so often centres around dieting and restriction
  • women are expected to have a lot of shame for their appetites
  • playing the cultural dating game
  • becoming confident in your needs and desires
  • repeating confidence until it feels natural

Episode 16 – Yvonne Langen Doesn’t Do Dry January, She Does A Dry Martini

Warning: we are NOT drinking coffee during this recording. Things get a little wild as Yvonne Langen and I discuss everything from dating on Tinder, healing from a difficult breakup, the latest trends in cocktails, and taking pleasure in challenges and struggles — even our favourite Cardi B lyrics.

Yvonne is the creator of Taste & Tipple, a blog that celebrates a large appetite for pleasure. It’s not vegan, it’s not keto, it’s not raw or restricted in any way — instead, it’s a place for food and drink that glorifies a lust for life. And as it turns out, Yvonne brings this spirit into every aspect of her highly curated life. Join us for a drink and listen in on this very candid and entertaining discussion!
