Interesting but snotty

I’m enjoying the content but not enjoying the pattern of treating Nastassia as the scapegoat.

Classics in the field

Love this podcast for the witty banter and solid and interesting info on cooking “issues”. Listen every Tuesday or whenever it’s available to stream. If you are interested in food in any shape or form, be it chef, home cook or just a foodie this should be in your queue!

Informative and really educational

Dave is really good about disseminating information and his knowledge of food and all things related is wildly vast and so helpful. I cannot stand Nastassia becuase all she does is sigh and make disruptive comments and noises that are simply irritating, I suppose she's just providing non sequiturs. Anyway, I want to like her and I keep hoping that I will at the end of every episode but I just can't stand her uselessness. Oh and I like the "Classics in the Field" segment and I've actually ordered some books because of it.
