FROM THIS EPISODE

Where can you get a 4-hour, 20 course Japanese meal, the best French omelette on Planet Earth and a goat taco -- all in one day? Los Angeles, of course: this city is a culinary wonderland. But not everyone is sharing in this bounty. In this installment of our Making L.A. series, we talk about what’s happening in the food scene, and food policy.

And a lovingly sketched and thoroughly researched biography has just come out in paperback. Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal is the latest scientific foray by Mary Roach. And it’s about the gut: what happens to our bodies when we eat and why.

Next, food and music are almost always plated together and, in this special edition of the Guest DJ Project, six all-star chefs share songs that inspire their process.

Next, there are right ways to do things and wrong ways to do things. Especially when it comes to food. Thankfully, Dan Pashman has now put on his white lab coat in search of great culinary truths.

'Gulp' 14 MIN, 43 SEC

A lovingly sketched and thoroughly researched biography has just come out in paperback. It is a portrait of a dark highway, a story that starts with an aroma and also ends with an aroma. A journey through humanity, a trip through ourselves. Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal, is the latest scientific foray by Mary Roach. And it’s about the gut: what happens to our bodies when we eat and why.

You're Eating It Wrong 7 MIN, 40 SEC

There are right ways to do things and wrong ways to do things. Especially when it comes to food. White is for fish, red goes with meat. The fork goes on the outside. When eating sushi, dip the fish in the soy sauce, not the rice. But none of these rules is based on pseudo-scientific research. Thankfully, Dan Pashman has now put on his white lab coat in search of great culinary truths.
