Best Soundbite: “If I eat spicy food, I sweat more and create a sweat puddle which means I’m more likely to slip on that sweat and die” – Ben Ebbrell

    It would be cool to do an intro video/page about all those people who are behind the scenes to make sorted what it is

    Being raised in Arizona I grew up on spicy foods. As to extending life expectancy here’s a weird thing. My Navajo Grandma ate seriously spicy food & lived to be 101 yrs old. My Scottish Granny ate hardly any spicy food. She complained if you put too much black pepper in a dish & she lived to be 97. I think as long as you have great flavor in your dishes, hitting sweet, tangy, umami, etc., if you turn up the heat on your spices it should add to the flavor. For instance, I think Jamie would love my chili and be fine with the heat. Ben would like the flavors but the heat might make him cry.

    As for questions: I know I’ve asked some of these before, but Nikki please pass these on.
    1)James is Scottish even without a Scottish accent, but does he cook any traditional Scottish foods? Does he have family in Scotland & does he visit there? Aside from British birth, culture & heritage do any of the other 4 guys have other ethnic backgrounds? Like doesn’t Jamie have some Italian heritage? If so, what ethnic foods do each of you gravitate to? Also, I’d like to ask if you could perhaps do a series on various foods from different indigenous cultures. I could send a lot of Native American recipes not just from my Navajo culture but many other various tribal cultures in North America. How about Maori foods or Aboriginal Aussie, Caribbean Islander, South Pacific Islands, Nepalese (aside from Momos), Tibetan, African nations, Amazon, etc. There are so many delicious indigenous foods around the world & I’d love to see them represented. By the way, I made Ed’s Conch Fritters w/ rice & peas …Ed, I love you! Thanks for sharing that awesome recipe. Let’s hear more about the crew too. Nikki, Lou, & the whole gang at Sorted. We Love You!

    As someone from New Orleans, I knew which of Barry’s was a lie as soon as he said it! Otherwise, our whole city would have the average life expectancy of about 25. I love you guys, y’all always give me something to look forward to all week long with your videos and podcasts. I really wish it was all 4 of you again! As for a food truth, did you know that eating certain fish (even fully cooked) can give you hallucinogenic episodes?
