Ep 29. Olia Hercules.

Olia Hercules' first book Mamushka was a worldwide best seller and is loved by chefs, food writers and home cooks alike. Olia grew up in Ukraine and her love of cooking is intimately bound to her love for her family and the long meals they shared at home. Charlie and Olia talk about her childhood, her radical career change, her time in professional kitchens, her books, her family, about growing up under the watchful eye of Russia and much more.
