Episode 31: The Mark Zuckerberg of Catholicism (aka Saint Anthony of Padua)

Episode 31: The Mark Zuckerberg of Catholicism (aka Saint Anthony of Padua)

Welcome to episode 31 The Mark Zuckerberg of Catholicism (aka St. Anthony of Padua)! Aimee does the wrong homework and tells us about the wrong Saint! It’s OK though because this Saint performed really lame “miracles”. Melissa tells us about a popular “Catholic” cocktail, and also gets real upset about some lemmings.

Stay after the credits for a bonus clip! 😉

The featured drink for episode 31 is the Bronx Cocktail.

Hot Cross Buns

It’s our first episode!

Feel free to listen on Google Music and Spotify too!

The Drink: Dom Perignon

This episode we got the chance to drink some Dom Perignon Champagne! It was Aimee’s first time drinking Dom, but Melissa ran us through the history of the beverage like the lush she is. We got into what designates a Champagne as “Champagne,” what creates those excellent bubbles, and how the drink has evolved over the centuries. Melissa even managed to work in some tidbits about the Shah of Iran, Princes Diana, and Marie Antoinette’s tits. We learned a lot.

The Dish: Hot Cross Buns

There’s approximately 50,000 recipes for hot cross buns out there. The oldest ones call for currants, but new recipes use ingredients ranging from raisins, to Citrons, to mashed potatoes. The basics are this: Hot Cross Buns are a sweet roll, made with yeast. Following generally any sweet roll recipe and adding in some chopped fruit is likely to get you a good result. And of course–don’t forget the cross! We’ve posted the recipe we chose here.

For the history of this dish, we got to explore all of the trappings of Catholicism. Despite the Dom, Aimee is pretty sure she got it mostly right! We talked about St. Alban’s Buns, the symbolism of buns baked on Good Friday, and even the pagan history of the dish too. We bounced around history from ancient Greece, to the middle ages, to Elizabethan England. We also learned of each host’s varying familiarity with the dish. Kate had never had one before! Please listen to the podcast to hear the full story!
