Yvonne Langen and I have been building a friendship one Sunday evening at a time over the last 6 years. We are both members of the Unputdownable Book Club and have a similarly candid approach to speaking our minds without much of a filter. This was such an enjoyable recoding, I think you can even hear it in my voice…


We touch on SO many different topics in this episode, but this will give you an idea:

THE STORY OF TASTE & TIPPLE:

  • a history of life with simple meals, turned into an obsession with fine food and drink
  • cooking her way through an influential cookbook in University
  • food as a universal language, establishing a sense of care in others
  • a giant undertaking: a blogging series that rendered 24 cocktails in 24 days


GROWING A FOOD BLOG:

  • incorporation of video / stop motion content
  • exploring different creative pursuits
  • imposter syndrome
  • how to stay motivated when the following is small?
  • measuring success in other terms, not likes or comments or follows


TURNING STRUGGLE INTO CONFIDENCE:

  • Yvonne shares about her difficult breakup that resulted in her pouring herself into other pursuits of passion
  • coming out the other side feeling like a happier, more confident person
  • a strong sense of self and how that leads to intimidation


DATING & DRINKING:

  • what NOT to order on a first date
  • Yvonne shares about her very first Tinder dating experience… spoiler: it wasn’t great
  • we take a musical interlude and get even more intoxicated
  • I merge two of my favourite worlds, alcohol and reality television, when I ask Yvonne to order off the menu of Vanderpump Rules’ new restaurant, Tom Tom


A LARGE APPETITE FOR ALL THINGS:

  • Taste & Tipple celebrates a lust for life, bringing pleasure back into food and drink in a world that so often centres around dieting and restriction
  • women are expected to have a lot of shame for their appetites
  • playing the cultural dating game
  • becoming confident in your needs and desires
  • repeating confidence until it feels natural

Episode 16 – Yvonne Langen Doesn’t Do Dry January, She Does A Dry Martini

Warning: we are NOT drinking coffee during this recording. Things get a little wild as Yvonne Langen and I discuss everything from dating on Tinder, healing from a difficult breakup, the latest trends in cocktails, and taking pleasure in challenges and struggles — even our favourite Cardi B lyrics.

Yvonne is the creator of Taste & Tipple, a blog that celebrates a large appetite for pleasure. It’s not vegan, it’s not keto, it’s not raw or restricted in any way — instead, it’s a place for food and drink that glorifies a lust for life. And as it turns out, Yvonne brings this spirit into every aspect of her highly curated life. Join us for a drink and listen in on this very candid and entertaining discussion!

    […] Then I listened to episode 14 of her show, entitled, “No, I won’t have coffee with you,” and Laura reminded me that you can’t be everything to everyone. I was instantly reassured that the only thing that mattered is that I shared my authentic self. Whether this episode resonates with you or not, you’ll definitely know me better after listening to it. You can listen to it wherever you find your podcasts or at: https://youmightnotlikeit.com/2019/01/30/tasteandtipple/ […]
