Food from a historical perspective

Great podcast that blends food and history. I love to listen while baking. Linda has on great guests and while her off-the-cuff banter can be awkward at times, she does her research on the guest's subject and asks great questions, making each episode fly by enjoyably with a lot of info and clear joy of the subject.

New episodes?

This hasn't updated since mid March; is the podcast finished putting out new shows?

Much better than its 4 Star rating

Unique approach to a cooking podcast...combining history and cooking. The host is charming and asks questions to the guests that you’d ask. Enjoy!
