In The Splendid Table’s How to Eat Weekends, Lynne and Sally take you on escapades for a deeply pleasurable experience. They want you to head to different neighborhoods and markets, gather up ingredients, and embrace new cooking techniques and flavors that will carry over into your everyday meals. They include backstories about the rituals and reasons behind particular dishes (such as why lettuce figures into southern Chinese New Year celebrations) and take you deep into the aromatic aisles of ethnic markets and neighborhoods.
Loyal listeners to The Splendid Table radio show know Lynne and Sally’s insatiable curiosity about the intersections between food and life and their belief that what goes into our mouths transcends taste. Their curiosity fires exciting flavors and new takes on dishes we’ll want to eat every day of the week.
