Scott Conant shares 'Peace, Love, and Pasta' and Dr. Uma Naidoo helps us explore the gut-brain connection
You probably know James Beard Award-winning chef Scott Conant from Food Network, but did you know he was born and raised in Connecticut? This hour on Seasoned, we talk with Scott about how his Waterbury roots shaped his approach to cooking and how he cooks at home. We'll dig in to his latest cookbook, Peace, Love, and Pasta. Plus, we had "a session" with a nutritional psychiatrist from Harvard. She’s a chef, too! Dr. Uma Naidoo explains the gut-brain connection and how we might use food as medicine.
