This episode features food writer and columnist, Mike Floreak –– and me, your host, Louisa Kasdon. We’ll each share a story about what happens when you love food. And your mother or mother-in-law could care less.

Mike Floreak on his mother-in-law, Mary:“Food was just one of the things Mary found disappointing. Like the people she met at Walmart. And my wife’s haircuts.”

Louisa Kasdon on her mother, Muriel Kasdon: 
“We used to tell people not to eat anything at my mother’s house. Not the cottage cheese with the blue scooped out. Not the tomato paste left over from the Depression…If she could have fed us Special K and frozen potpies from her favorite Jewish butcher every night, that would have been fine with her.”
