Join hosts Avery and Lena Cochrane (and sometimes guests) as they sample, rate, and talk about fun foods. History and facts are discussed from treats such as flavoured Oreos, to pumpkin spice, to types of boxed dressing. Listen to an amusing debate about the assessment of a different food theme each week. This couple may not always agree, but they will for sure ridicule each other for not seeing eye to eye. Listen weekly to hear delightful banter about yummy foods!

136 Honey Honey!

Welcome to the Mess Hall Podcast, part of the @albertapodnet Locally grown. Community supported.

This week Lena and Avery try some sweet honey treats! Raw honey, mead, spicy mead jelly and some other great treats. 

This week's show is brought to you in part from our friends at ATB. 

I want to talk to you about a new initiative from our friends at ATB, called ATB Goodness Grows. #ATBGoodnessGrows is an initiative that motivates Albertans to bring joyful moments to others. We’re all adjusting to being disconnected from the places, people and experiences we love...so making someone laugh, or bringing a smile to their day, has never been more needed or more powerful. From livestreams connecting business owners, to new and fun ways to celebrate things like Father’s Day, ATB hopes to inspire Albertans to keep the goodness growing!
