Francis inherited a chunk of pu'er tea from his grandfather years ago and has never tasted it. This week he learns the story of that inheritance and tastes it for the first time with tea master, Tim Hsu. Cecile Richards is a national leader for women’s rights and economic justice, and she finds that cooking with her family is exactly what she needs to take care of herself in these turbulent pre-election months. And what does she love to cook? Pie! Her new book is Make Trouble. Food writer Ruth Reichl tells us about an eye-opening experience she had at The Center for Discovery while on the hunt for prosciutto. Tucker Shaw, of America's Test Kitchen, talks about taking care in the kitchen. Plus, Francis talks with a listener about and shares his thoughts on feeding a picky toddler.
