Since we launched the PPBH blog more than a year ago, we’ve highlighted several PPBHers and some of the fun, fabulous things they do in their spare time. From juggling flames to playing the lead in a play, PPBH has all sorts of hobbies and skills under one roof. Without further ado, I’m pleased to introduce PPBH Interactive Specialist Jon Manning and his YouTube Channel, “The Burning Pan.”
Jon, who heads our New York office, launched this year his very own web series, “The Burning Pan.” In these webisodes, Jon gives cooking lessons on great, healthy recipes and other tips for gardening and growing your own food. So why his own cooking show? We asked Jon this very question:
“I was watching a really well done video on how to MIG weld that someone had taken the time to shoot, edit and post on YouTube. I realized that while cat videos are awesome, there’s a huge potential to use sites like YouTube and Vimeo as a down-to-earth educational resource. I wanted to try to give back to fellow experimental kitchen do-gooders or people that might want to start cooking but might be intimidated by the more elaborate & sophisticated recipes in traditional cooking shows. Plus, it’s a great outlet for testing random improvised recipes or ‘craft’ ideas that may or may not work in the end.”
Currently, two episodes are available on The Burning Pan YouTube Channel:
Keep a look out for upcoming episodes on home coffee roasting, parsnip sushi and bread making.
So, what are you waiting for? Go visit Jon’s channel, subscribe to his episodes and let us know how the recipes and tips turn out.
We’ll continue to highlight PPBHers and their unique hobbies, skills and favorite pastimes in future posts.
