Podcast: Salmon Mayonnaise
The ferry, Freud's salmon mayonnaise, a recipe for nectarines and ricotta on toast, everything I ate on Colonsay | two book events
Hello! My name is Rebecca May Johnson, I am a writer and cook and this is my is the audio podcast version of my twenty-first newsletter, with the title Salmon Mayonnaise. In it I read aloud writing about food eaten on a ferry, Freud’s salmon mayonnaise story as cited by Nuar Alsadir in her brilliant new book Animal Joy, a recipe for macerated nectarines and ricotta on toast, and everything I ate during 3 days on Colonsay.
