Usually on Labor Day, Americans are gathering around the barbecue, celebrating one last gasp of summer before settling into the routine of school or work. Routines are not what they once were during this pandemic. Nevertheless Good Food hopes this weekend is used to take a break from all the laboring — both physical and emotional. As an escape, Good Food offers a “zone out” show.

From magical mushrooms on the forest floor to rare pasta shapes in Italy, grab the popcorn, tune in, and prepare to leave hungry. Plus, author Samin Nostrat and illustrator Wendy MacNaughton discuss their collaboration on the award-winning cookbook, “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat.”
