Critic Rating

Food with a side of science and history. Every other week, co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley serve up a brand new episode exploring the hidden history and surprising science behind a different food- or farming-related topic, from aquaculture to ancient feasts, from cutlery to chile peppers, and from microbes to Malbec. We interview experts, visit labs, fields, and archaeological digs, and generally have lots of fun while discovering new ways to think about and understand the world through food.

Nicholas Quah • Vulture Nov 22, 2017

"...food as a rich subject for historical and scientific analysis, which offers up more intellectual pleasures. The show is fun, mischievous, and delightful in its rampant curiosity."
