Today on The Main Course, host Patrick Martins talks to fish expert and author of the book School of Fish, Ben Pollinger. They discuss how he had to come up with a different approach to writing a food book. His approach came naturally as a direct result of cooking at home. He also briefly discusses various fish seasons and his top three year round fish.
In the latter part of the show, we pick up where we left off with the talk given by Carlo Petrini and Alice Waters during their 25th anniversary of Slow Food. This program was brought to you by the International Culinary Center.
