Literature and Food

Hosted by

We see what happens when literature and food are stirred together: Novelist Isabel Allende shares how food stimulated her passion for life after the death of her daughter; George Lang survived World War II labor camps to become the world's chairman of the hospitality industry; wine columnist Dan Berger explains why wine is so cheap these days. Plus, the tongue-twisting process that goes into naming the food you buy at the grocery store, and our food scientist answers whether spicy food really does kill bacteria. As always, we take you right to the Farmers Market for what's fresh this week.
