Chef Jacob is a refreshingly intelligent and irreverent podcaster. I love his scientific approach, joie de vivre, and disdain for anyone riding a high horse. His bread series, in particular the sourdough, has been a huge help to me as a baker. His other podcasts are entertaining and have helped...Read full review »

These podcasts are invaluable to those baking at home. Is there a book?

I was looking for a cooking podcast that skipped all of the mumbling, inside-joke banter between hosts that offered only a couple minutes out of an hour of poor quality audio. This IS that show. This IS what you’re looking for! So educational. So to the point. So interesting. So...Read full review »

This is a phenomenal podcast that gets right into cooking! I love the focus of this podcast. Many podcasts have tangents into all sorts of irrelevant topics. Jacob stays right on topic with a wealth of fascinating and useful info. I also love the large amount of bread talk. Many baking podcasts...Read full review »

I really love your show. I love your brutally honest accounts that are at the same time balanced with kindness. At the same time, I learn every time I listen. Thank you for calling the people out!

Perfect mix of intro and deep dive for a wide range of topics. So much cooking content is just glorified recipes rather than teaching the why behind the why to really learn culinary skills.

Thank you Chef Jacob!!!!!!! You’re doing a wonderful job. It is so important for all culinarians to know the basics of cooking, which a lot of cooks don’t know.

Thank you for teaching me how to become a better chef
schmidt123412 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/19
I’ve been wanting to get into sourdough bread making. Jacob’s 5 part series is a great primer with practical insights. He breaks down the process into manageable parts. For example, none of the books I’ve read describe how you can easily convert a recipe from a direct method into an indirect...Read full review »

This used to be a great podcast full of information (check out the bread series) But, Jacob seems to have transformed from pro to "bro" - Later episodes are marked expllicit, and sound more like high school boys dropping f-bombs and proclaiming every things as "sick" instead of...Read full review »

Jacob is excellent and does a great job breaking down advanced French techniques and food science to help amateur home cooks turn out meals like the pros. Having worked in kitchens and learned from great chefs, this is a great resource to continue my own education.

I'm not a professional chef, just so readers of this review will know the context of this. As someone who has just started trying to improve his cooking, this podcast is a massively useful resource on European cooking (I have only made it through half of the episodes, maybe they discuss...Read full review »

Thank you, Chef Jacob, for taking the time and energy to do what you do and share your knowledge. This podcast has become my main podcast, as Chef Jacob takes the time to break down not only technique, but the science behind what’s happening and why it happens when you do things. Breaking down...Read full review »

Chef Jacob's podcast is exceptional. I like that he peppers his lessons with his ideas and insights. It helps the listener connect and digest the information easily. It is so valuable, I’m having my dishwasher, who has shown an interest to get out of the dishpit, go through the course. Well done...Read full review »

Jacob has a very engaging style, and helpful/approchable manner (see the forum) makes him an excellent teacher. I strongly recommend...Read full review »
