Our Moderator Libby gives hard-hitting stories of food in the news to our panelists and they discuss their attitudes and opinions in our Weekly Baste Segment. This week we discuss Cynthia Nixon’s bagel order, products that are actually handmade, snack foods, The Spotted Pig and misused food terms. The Maillard Reaction Segment opens the floor for each panelist to give an opinion about a question that is relevant to the current week. The show is rounded out by our special guest, Alfred Milanese, the man behind the beloved Martin’s Pretzels in New York. Ask anyone and they will say Martin’s makes their favorite pretzel. Handmade by Mennonites (no machines ever!) in New York and Pennsylvania, and boiled in water and soda, Martin’s Pretzels are available for sale around the country via MartinsPretzels.com and locally in New York at many of the Greenmarkets.
