In the first half of this week’s Food Talk, Mike chats with Fuchsia Dunlop, an English writer and cook who specializes in Chinese cuisine. She was an East Asian analyst at the BBC World Service, and was the first westerner to train as a chef at the Sichuan Institute of Higher Cuisine in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. Her latest book is Land of Fish and Rice: Recipes from the Culinary Heart of China.


After the break, Alice Feiring is back in the studio to talk about natural wines and the recent RAW Wine Fair in Brooklyn.
