A Listener for Decades

The interview with Kwame Onwachi was absolutely the best one I’ve listened to. Thank for sharing him with the world. I plan to send his book to my grandson.

Losing interest

As a consumer of TV shows, podcasts, and videos on food and cooking for a number of years, I am growing tired of hearing about celebrity chefs, what goes on in commercial kitchens, and all the political issues pertaining to food. I just want an escapist vehicle that motivates me to go into the kitchen and make something. Of the most recent shows (this is April, 2019), the only one I connected with was the one on cooking tools and knives, how you could sharpen a knife on the bottom of a ceramic cup. That's what sticks, and that's what I tune in for. As for the call-in segments, Francis just isn't programmed for that. Just drop the Splendid Table format and start over with something new rather than keeping The Splendid Table on life support.
