Really good insight into the SoCal food scene!
This is my go to podcast for my Sunday walk. I love Evan and her way of guiding a conversation. It really is a nice way to keep up to date with what is going on in the Southern California food scene.
Some good info but host is rude
Host is always rude or dismissive about vegetarian or vegan foods, so is annoying and frustrating to listen to
Perfect and ALWAYS fresh and interesting
Today I learned the details of what happened to
Bread. What was once considered to be dirties by immigrant hands, is now selling (not o my to me) for upwards of $10 a loaf. The listening is so unpolitically comforting and smart.
Thank you Evan!
