Food Actually

Listen on

We all think a lot about food: when to get it, where to get it, how much of it to eat. But do we really think about food? Or do we accept what we’ve always been told about the “right” way to cook our pasta or the “best” wine to drink? In Food Actually, cook and journalist Tamar Adler re-examines a wide range of conventional culinary wisdom. She connects the feeding habits of goats to the history of the Dorito. She travels to South Africa to meet the first Black woman to make wine there, and she talks to friends like Samin Nosrat.
