Episode 51: Trips for Taste

January 31, 1998

We're talking food worth making a trip for with Jeffrey Steingarten, food columnist for Vogue magazine and author of The Man Who Ate Everything. Jeff shares his thoughts on where in the world to find the best—from barbecue to deep-fried treasures—and talks about a man he calls the "Julia Child of Japanese cooking." Jane and Michael Stern are at the beach sampling Japanese fare themselves—at a "surfers' sushi bar!" Deborah Krasner, author of Kitchens for Cooks, gives the scoop on sinks; and Ed Blonz, Ph.D., author of Your Personal Nutritionist: Food Additives, has an update on fat and answers a Pittsburgh listener's question about MSG. As always, the phone lines will be open with Lynne taking your calls.
