They put Frank Sinatra on and Herb Alpert and music like that. My mum had spent days cooking, the fridge was full with things we’d never seen before, honestly I can’t tell you how exotic this was in Northern Ireland. But it wasn’t just about food. Honestly, that night I could have been in Manhattan, I was in Northern Ireland and I just thought…look what food can do.”

I [had] recently separated from my partner at the time, and she insisted that she knew the perfect broken-heart saffron concoction. She made me a beautiful small glass of warm milk that she infused with saffron and a little bit of honey. It certainly warmed my heart.”

I had never tasted anything like them before, so I didn’t necessarily feel like I had come home. But what I did know was that I wanted to understand what was behind them, [that] this was a really interesting way of cooking and that I really needed to know more.” We also take a look at a Vietnamese-style weeknight dinner with Andrea Nguyen, wine expert Stephen Meuse explores the sommelier’s romance with one wine, and we’ll offer our recipe for caramel oranges.

But they don’t meld to become one thing. Often (with) dishes here, you can taste everything that’s going on, all at once in a bite.” Also on today’s show, Dan Pashman of The Sporkful makes New Year’s resolutions, Adam Gopnik explores eating in difficult political times, and we present our quick sizzling greens recipe.

This week on Milk Street Radio, we talk with food writer Michael Pollan—author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and star of the Netflix series “Cooked.” “I don’t think people are quite aware how many marketing messages for food they see in a day,” Pollan says. “The total amount of money the government spends offering nutrition advice, the food pyramid, the eat 5 servings a day, the you know avoid trans-fats whatever it is, all that government spending which is in the three hundred million or so range was less then the marketing budget for one Pepsico, one product, one snack food, so you know the information is so imbalanced that this idea of a consumer democracy falls apart.” Dan Pashman of The Sporkful podcast considers waiting for your food.
