I don’t mind working long hours when it means I get to hang out in the kitchen of a culinary school.
And sample pumpkin puree with chipotle brown butter.
And visit the pastry lab.
Where students bake kugelhopf and brioche and pretzel baguettes.
Yes, I’m getting more comfortable with a microphone in my hand.
And I’m really starting to enjoy the meticulous work required to transform 3+ hours of recorded sound into a 5-minute story for radio.
Check out my latest piece for WPSU’s Local Food Journey, which aired on NPR in central Pennsylvania last Thursday.

Love it! You are the next Lynn Rosetta Kasper!
You know I love The Splendid Table. I listen to Lynn for inspiration!
Congrats on your piece! What a fun place to do an interview.
So cool! Was this story the inspiration for your pumpkin sausage pasta?! I’d love to recipe!
Actually, the pumpkin sausage pasta is an old favorite. Here’s a link to the recipe: http://theculinarycouple.com/2007/11/06/pumpkin-and-sausage-pasta-2/.
Loved the story, and love that you are doing this kind of work! Makes me want to throw down everything and walk over to NPR to beg for any sort of job they’re giving out.
Could I be more jealous of your job? Nope! And your pumpkin sausage pasta is officially bookmarked!
My brother just graduated from here and yesterday got a job in Rochester!!! what a wonderful school.
Great blog entry and beautiful pics!
Very cool, Alyssa! I’m slightly jealous of your brother 🙂
