So much happiness in this show!

Growing up with Splendid Table on Sunday afternoons with Lynne introduced me to the food world like nothing else, and kept me going as I nurtured dreams of food becoming my career - I am happy to say that now my dreams are coming true! Francis Lam is the absolute PERFECT replacement for her, he is warm, enthusiastic, so curious and just genuinely loves doing what he does. His laugh is everything to me 💖 love splendid table, love you Lynne and love you Francis!!!

No longer a fan

I unsubscribed today after years; I like Francis Lam just fine, but the content has shifted from food and cooking to people and cookbooks. These days, when I hear Francis introducing the topic of the day’s show, I tend to utter an audible “ugh, no thanks.” I don’t need another entry in the wokesphere, so I’ll look elsewhere for my foodtalk fix... maybe even the disgustingly named Milk Street, or that shrill pie-fest KCRW Good Food.

He had to go political...

I want to hear about food and cooking on this podcast not a passive aggressive political statement about the Statue of Liberty. Using his kid’s Halloween costume as the way to deliver his message made it even worse. Unsubscribed.
