Love Francis and the Show

By JustAnotherJen - May 31 2020

I’ve listened to Splendid Table for years and loved LRC, and now have fallen for Francis, too. I feel like he uncovers so many special moments with his genuine and respectful way with guests. I love the variety of cultures covered, and all the sounds and descriptions of what’s happening during cooking segments. One of my favorite stories was when he drank the tea that was gifted to him by his grandfather. Really touching. Look forward to it every week!
