Chris Kimball is out at Cook’s Illustrated and Dana Cowin has moved on from Food & Wine. We try to make sense of these seismic shifts in food media.
We also talk over the topic of classic casseroles. You don’t actually need a can of condensed soup to make one!
Here are our picks for our favorite store-bought edible holiday gifts:
- Eclat Chocolates
- John & Kira’s
- High Street on Market Panettone (Here’s the Edible Philly story I mentioned all about this bread.)
