A disappearing food franchise. The story behind how a Vietnamese spring roll ended up on the menu of Senegalese restaurants. We take America's Test Kitchen's inquisitive and relentless approach to telling unexpected, funny, and thought-provoking narratives about food and drink. This is not a recipe show. And this is not a show about celebrity chefs or what they like to eat. Proof plunges into history, culture, science, and the psyche to uncover the hidden backstories that feed your food-obsessed brain. Hosted by Kevin Pang. A production of America's Test Kitchen.

It’s different but is it better?
I’ve been listening to this podcast since the day it aired. I do not mind the new hosts and I am glad that you guys are talking about interesting topics that are more fun and entertaining. I do miss Bridget’s voice. However, I am going to keep listening!
Gone down hill
I found this relatively late. Glad there are older episodes to listen to because the new “direction” is terrible. Uninteresting topics, hardly any new episodes. I have literally skipped 6 out for the 7 new episodes. Disappointing. I will finish listening to the earlier episodes and then unfollow.
The theme song is nice 😊
Love your theme song and very interesting topics
