Very entertaining and educational

This is a great food podcast. All three of the hosts seem to have a very good grasp of cooking techniques, and the wittiness between them is often very funny. The recipes that they share sound very mouthwatering and I particularly like the science and the technique described. The episode on tiramisu was very funny. Give this one a listen if you want to learn more about general cooking techniques and Italian food.
