So good

Thoughtful, interesting, surprising... this is a great food podcast for anyone who is curious about the world. It touches on so many things beyond what you typically find in a “cooking” series, but now I also feel like I “get” some of the ingredients better. Thank you!

Typical Ruhlman!

Typical in that it’s well researched, well presented and you’ll learn a thing or two. So excited for this!

Got boring real fast

This show had a really interesting premise and I like Ruhlman's books but the show is way too dense. The scripted stuff is so boring. It feels like the narration is written by someone else who doesn't have the host's chops. It's uncomfortable to just hear someone reading for so long. Not sure if they changed teams or what but the first couple of episodes were way better. Please: more showing, less telling and if you have to tell, do it in your own words.
