The Splendid Table

If you're looking for an all-food podcast, check out American Public Media's "The Splendid Table." I accidentally came across the show when I was trying to tune something in on the radio while traveling. Fortunately, I ended up hearing an entire episode and found the show's site, archives and podcasts soon after.

Why listen to The Splendid Table? Well, for one, host Lynne Rossetto Kasper is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about all things food, without being pretentious and elitist. Kasper has excellent guests, including Mario Batali, Michael Pollan, Anthony Bourdain, Deborah Madison, Jane + Michael Stern and John Willoughby. A portion of the show is devoted to recipe suggestions from Kasper and her guests to stumped listeners as well as pairings of unlikely ingredients. On the show's site, there's reading lists, a comprehensive and helpful recipe section and thoughtful features, such as the latest "Seed Stories" series, and more.
