The Splendid Table on WAMC HD2

Saturdays, 3pm - 4pm
  • Hosted by Lynne Rossetto Kasper

The Splendid Table  is a celebration of food and the roles it plays in our lives. The program has been at the forefront of food issues and policies since its inception. Long before eating local became a catchphrase and farmers' markets became ubiquitous, The Splendid Table was talking about the changes needed in the food system and what was happening on the grassroots level. In fact, when The Splendid Table first went on the air, Lynne had to make sure to define such terms as "organic" and "sustainable" for listeners. Today those terms have become part of the everyday lexicon, and people's hunger for wholesome food and the rituals surrounding it has only increased.
