I [HEART] The Splendid Table and Lynne Rossetto Kasper

I just did a search on this board to see what's been said about Lynne's show on NPR, and since I didn't see anything recent I thought I'd say a few words. I really enjoy Lynne and I think the content of her show is well thought out and well presented. For me, one of the joys of driving alone is listening to Splendid Table podcasts I've downloaded. It's like traveling with a good friend who shares my enthusiasm for all things food-related. She comes across as VERY knowledgeable, personable and even approachable -- someone I could easily envision as a friend -- and even if that's just her on-air personality, I enjoy her and I learn something new from almost every show. Among my favorite segments are Jane and Michael Stern and callers' questions. And if there's one feature I wish would go away forever it's where a caller names a bunch of ingredients in their fridge, Lynne concocts a recipe using them and a guest celebrity chef judges Lynne's creative effort. IMHO that's too much like Chopped and really has no redeeming value. So -- kudos to Lynne and The Splendid Table.
