Description

An illuminating, conversational podcast about the surprising histories behind the foods we love. Did you know Mussolini tried to ban pasta in Italy? Or that Cajun food has proud Canadian ancestry? Guests are a mix of experts in their fields and professional funny people, so you'll probably learn something and maybe have a chuckle, too. Hosted by Katherine Spiers, former food editor at LA Weekly and current manager of the website How to Eat L.A.
