Interesting and considered about food and all aspects of food, feeding and nutrition

Evan Kleinman has a gentle yet assertive presence. I love her take on food as politics but she is neither hectoring or elitist.
Her guests are interesting and informative too.
I listen to good food as I have my beautiful walks in the Highlands of Scotland. So she has a big reach!
