The eight episodes that comprise this podcast give the listener rare insider access to the world of fine dining. Episodes are dedicated to iconic eateries, including The French Laundry, Spago, and The Slanted Door, as well as cultural standard bearers like Dooky Chase and Ben's Chili Bowl. What makes these podcasts so enjoyable is hearing from culinary stars like Thomas Keller and Nancy Silverton, Wolfgang Puck and Charles Phan. The voices of the chefs and cooks are interspersed with the insights of chef-hosts Samuelsson and Waxman, which add flavor to the mix. Gabrielle Hamilton, whose New York City restaurant, Prune, was a victim of Covid is especially smart, entertaining, and witty. It's hard to pick out a favorite. All the backstories and fortunes of the various establishments make this a compelling listening experience. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
