This week on Milk Street Radio, British writer Diana Henry, author of “Simple”, redefines home cooking and recalls an early memory at her parents’ home in Ireland. “I was probably about 9 and they had a big party,” Henry says. “It was a rainy night in autumn or winter in Northern Ireland. 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.”

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.

And, as always, Christopher Kimball and Sara Moulton take your calls.
