Never Miss a Show

I enjoy the direction that Francis has taken the show. Not only the recipes but interesting forays into food culture, history and ideas. He asks interesting questions too. I know Lynn hand picked Frances and I compliment her foresight. I am also glad to see Sally taking on a more prominent role and love her down-to-earth style.

Calming and informative

One of my favorite ways to learn and relax. You guys have built a wonderful and welcoming space for cooks of all abilities. Francis does such incredible interviews and his laugh is so wonderful to hear. I love “Turkey Confidential” on Thanksgiving and have learned so much from your regular call-in sessions! Thanks for making me a better cook!

What Happened?!

This podcast used to be about the food...and now with new host Francis Lam it’s turned into a sort of “This American Life” with a food angle. I think Francis may not be the right fit for this podcast as he clearly wants to explore the cultures and socio-economic information of foods rather than the actual ingredients themselves. Francis also never seems to do the live caller sessions anymore which is disappointing. This podcast has really strayed from what drew me in originally. Please please PLEASE keep this show about the food.
