"We're Looking at Food Now in Very Different Ways"

A culinary conversation with Lynne Rossetto Kasper about her show 'The Splendid Table,' which joins the NPR 89.1 programming lineup June 1. It will air Saturdays at 1:00pm.

“We're a show that looks at food from just about every possible angle,” Kasper told Arizona Spotlight's Mark McLemore.

But it's equally accessible to dedicated gourmands and kitchen-averse microwavers.

“Sixty percent of the people who listen to this show and are fans of it have no intention of walking into a kitchen under their own volition,” said Kasper.

“And that's really wonderful to me. Because the point here is that what we've discovered food is far more than cooking.”
