President of the US Humane Society

The President is Kitty Block. Why did Carrie say she is? Carrie is the VP of Communications. Hmmm.

Posh is off putting

Bourdain isn’t a saint, just a flawed human being like the rest of us.

Nigella Lawson’s interview was painful. I can’t stand the privileged arrogance. I’ve tried many recipes from her books and they have never failed to disappoint.

Just delicious!

Really love this show! Ed does a great job making connections between cusine and culture. I can literally feel his sincerity in everything he says, and I can tell the guests he brings on are people he is genuinely excited to share with his listeners. Pull up a chair and take a bite!
