Host Clark Wolf visited with legendary food writer, Emmy Award winner and retired New York Times reporter Marian Burros at her home in Northern Vermont where they talked about the state of food in America, her famous plum tart recipe (number one forever at the New York Times), how cookbooks sometimes need to be updated, covering hard news food issues, and a whole lot more.
Later in the show, Clark welcomes John Toulze, Managing Partner of the beloved the Girl & the Fig. They talk about the history of that landmark Sonoma (the town) restaurant over the last quarter century on the occasion of its 25th Anniversary. They also explore the realities of serving 400-700 people a day with locally grown ingredients and working in collaboration with farmers, staff, neighbors, and friends.
