An Arts and Food podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
Taste Matters, plain and simple. Join host Mitchell Davis, Vice President of the James Beard Foundation, cookbook author, restaurant reviewer, and food scholar, on a journey of exploration of the sense, the cultural construct, and the culinary phenomenon of taste. However much we talk about where our food comes from, how it is produced, who prepares it, or what sorts of socio-cultural-political implications our food choices and eating behaviors have, taste is fundamental. And matters of taste aren’t just the purview of the privileged. We’ll examine personal tastes and collective tastes, biological tastes and acquired tastes, good tastes and bad tastes. We believe that everyone’s food should taste good and that all food can probably taste better. Join us for a delicious half hour program live every Wednesday at 11:00AM ET.
