Aida: (Answering the question, if she has ever been stumped) Actually, yes. I was stumped by the difference between grades A&B of maple syrup. I knew Grade A was used for pancakes and Grade B was used for baking. But, I didn't know the difference came about after the syrup is made. I thought maybe it had to do with the tree or something to that effect.
Aida: (Asked on how Food Network approached her on Ask Aida)
As the Food Editor of Chow.com, I am also in several instructional videos on the site. Representatives for the Food Network were frequent visitors to the site and approached me about the possibility of a show, so I said, 'Sure!'
Aida: (Asked on if she gets stage fright) Not at all when I was filming. However, last week I was on a JetBlue flight, and as I flipped through the channels I saw a commercial for [the show], and all of a sudden I realized the whole world was going to see it. It's really hard to watch or hear yourself.
Aida Mollenkamp: (Being asked, how she did hook up with her side kick, Noah Starr?)
It was like a dating service. I sat down with 10 different potential hosts. Noah and I have a lot in common. We even have birthdays very close together. We share a same sense of humor.
Aida: (Being asked upon rocketing fuel and food prices and how to keep your kitchen bills down) First of all, eat seasonly and locally, because that way you know you're eating what's there, right in your vicinity, tomatoes are being grown in summer eat them then. You don't have to pay as much for the product and then eat a big piece of meat. Go buy a big roast chicken as opposed to a boneless skinless breast that have had extra work done to them, so you are paying more for that work. Those couple of things will definetely help to keep your bills down and you don't have to worry that much.
