This week on Good Food, host Evan Kleiman talks with writer Barry Estabrook about America's most prized, and tormented fruit: the tomato. Kris Morningstar of Ray's at LACMA thinks beef tendon is the new pork belly. We'll hear about coffee alternatives like Cascara and Postum from Kevin Sinott. Jonathan Gold takes us to a new Middle Eastern restaurant in West Hollywood. Marion Nestle explains how the USDA turned their food pyramid into a plate and what that means for Americans. Plus, cooking with taragon from the Farmers Market with Chef CC Consalvo. And, Debbie Shore gives us an update on how hunger is affecting American youth.
