About the Podcast

Imagine listening to a cooking show that hearkens back to the early days of radio. Listeners get to use their "ears" to see the cooking that goes on and to hear the stories behind every recipe.

Second Act Scratch is more than just a cooking show; it’s an authentic conversation that unfolds in the kitchen. Doreen Fang, a top 10 Finalist on the Food Network Star and featured chef on The Morning Blend, and Tony Felice, entrepreneur, author, and owner of a successful branding agency, bring their unique perspectives and comedic approach to life’s second act. Each episode is a blend of laughter, life lessons, and culinary delights, making it a must-listen for food lovers and anyone navigating their own second act in life.

Our podcast is available on all your favorite platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Amazon Audible, iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, and Stitcher.

Episode Highlights

In our debut season, we've explored a range of topics and recipes that resonate with our listeners. From comforting childhood breakfast dishes to special Easter dinners, and heartfelt tributes to our beloved pets, each episode offers something unique and deeply personal. For instance, in one episode, Tony shares his family’s Easter traditions while Doreen steps in to cook due to Tony’s cut finger accident. In another, Doreen gives a masterclass on making Chinese potstickers, sharing the cultural significance and techniques behind this beloved dish. We’ve also touched on heavier themes, such as coping with loss, and the healing power of cooking and sharing stories.
