    Finding Flavor with Gail Simmons

    Finding Flavor with Gail Simmons

    This episode tackles the mysterious phenomenon we call flavor—which is different from taste, by the way. Marc digs into the technical side of things during a chat with Bob Holmes, author of Flavor: The Science of Our Most Neglected Sense, then gets personal with Gail Simmons of Top Chef. They discuss what it’s like to recreate flavors from memory, why a cherished meal is like an ex, and how she stays objective while judging food on TV.

Marc is a great interviewer

Love to hear Marc talk about the business of restaurants. Only episode that wasn’t so hot was with Andrew Zimmerman, who is just a tool and a fool.
