  • 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. more

  • Filled with fascinating food people

    It’s very interesting to hear the back stories and personal histories of these chefs and cooks. The host has a lot of respect for these journeys and lets the guests tell their stories, which are often very relatable and include tips on techniques and recipes. Even if you aren’t much of a cook or food person yourself It’s a good listen!
