Ear Candy: The Splendid Table

I'm an avid podcast listener and thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorites here. (Not to mention this is an accessible topic for this all too infrequent blogger.)

The podcast that I run to sync weekly is Lynne Rosetto Kasper's The Splendid Table. This is simply a superlative food podcast. Kasper attracts authors, chefs, and interesting food people of greater and lesser note. She regular features Jane and Michael Stern of Road Food fame and the acerbic Christopher Kimball of Cook's Illustrated joins her for a "what would I cook from what's in your house" guest segment that is always amusing. Kasper's call-in dialogue is witty and smart. She's a trained chef and unabashedly in love with Italy but manages to share her fascination with food regardless of borders.

Kasper and her colleague at The Splendid Table, Sally Swift, have just published a book called How to Eat Supper. The book features the same tidbits and treats you can hear on The Splendid Table. I'm just starting to cook from it but am jazzed by the range of recipes and its focus on the weeknight table.

If you love food or just the idea of food, let Lynne Rosetto Kasper take you on a weekly journey where you'll travel on your stomach and taste with your mind and heart.
