Cooking Right With Dann Reid

Years ago I thought it would be a good idea to start a libertarian food blog. I love cooking and eating great food, and I love liberty, so it seemed like a great fit! As it turned out, I didn’t know where to start. Thankfully, today’s guest did. Dann Reid is a chef, baker, blogger, and podcaster who is as good a political and social commentator as he is a culinary artist. Dann’s podcast Culinary Libertarian is a must-listen for anyone interested in the intersection of these two worlds.

In this episode we answer some of the food world’s most pressing questions:

  • Is a hot dog a sandwich?

  • Is there any reason to buy salted butter?

  • Burgers: Thick or smashed?

  • Why is Bill Gates buying up all the farmland?

A few other resources

  • Short essay: Bill Gates’ Global Agenda and How We Can Resist His War on Life

  • Is a hot dog a sandwich? I say yes. Here’s why.

  • The funniest thing you’ll ever read about Tom Woods’s Bluehost offer. (Here’s my Bluehost link if you’re finally ready to start a website!)

  • Imperfect Foods, which I subscribe to and highly recommend. If you use my link, we both get $10 free!

  • Kindle Unlimited, which is a great way to increase your book consumption and a great way to consume Dann’s cookbook, if you don’t mind reading recipes off a screen
