Sarah and I were having a production meeting the other day and we were talking about cool people we’d like to have on the show. Sarah immediately suggested Lynne Rossetto Kasper, award winning author and host the The Splendid Table radio show from American Public Radio.
I listen to Lynne’s show in the car, driving between NYC and CT. I especially like the part of the show where people call and list what they have in their fridge and Lynne comes up with a meal using those ingredients. neat.
Sarah and I both had a question to ask Lynne, Sarah’s dealt with working toward a career in the food world and mine was not nearly as interesting, it was how to cook from your fridge. And Lynne told us of how she first worked with Julia Child in a cooking demo at the A&S Store in Brooklyn, right near where both Sarah and I live.
I was a bit tongue tied at the beginning of the show, but I got better as we started talking. Lynne is a real pro at radio, she made it easy for us. We hope she’ll be back on GF Radio in a bit and we can talk more about cooking and food.
A big thank you to American Public Media for helping us arrange the call.
Lynne’s newest book is A Summertime Grilling Guide written with Sally Swift. below are links to Lynne’s books.
