I listen to Good Food somewhat regularly and enjoy your interviews. You did not fail today when you interviewed the authors of Thug Kitchen. Thank you for taking this matter seriously. I've heard a co...uple of other interviews where the authors and the interviewer were very flippant and dismissive of the whole issue. I can literally write a thousand word essay in my sleep on my issues with what they did, but I won't bore you. I will just say this, in 2 years when sales of the book decline and views on the blog decrease they'll do what all good businesses do; they'll re-brand. In two years when black men are still being gunned down in the streets and the defense is that they were thugs and it's ok they died, when do they get to re-brand? The authors of Thug Kitchen will never have to live with the real ramifications of what happens to people who are actually unjustly considered thugs. See More

Long time listener! First time commenter. Thug Kitchen bloggers and know authors certainly have right to choose not to acknowledge, or answer the critique most notably from the CNN piece but I have to... say their failure to answer it leaves a vacuum that leaves me to conclude they are being disingenuous. Clearly it doesn't matter to them as they are and will continue to reap the financial rewards from their use of what I can only describe as a class distinction slur which in turn is a racial slur.

I totally loved the show today about Kosher cooking and artisan breads. The show is not just about swapping recipes, but goes into the culture and history of food. Truly an intellectual feast! Do your...self a favor and listen regularly! Evan's kitchen is always open and always has room for one more! Dig in! See More

Evan, I thought you did a good job with the creators of Thug Kitchen trying to extract some facts out of them, about what I find to be an obvious cultural appropriation of a stereotypical black male "...thug" voice, adopted in what appears to be a way to lend a sort of "attitude" to their website. I liked the guy from Afro Vegan's comments and found this couples total lack of insight and blasé response to be an embarrassing reflection of privilege gone awry. I love your Podcast! See More

KCRW's Good Food with Evan Kleiman is an incredibly valuable insight into what's happening in the food world. Kleiman's interviews are always with either people you've been dying to know more about or... with people you can't believe you've never heard of. Chefs, food entrepreneurs, scientists, ranchers, and more are highlighted in this show. My favorite segment is always the Farmer's Market Report. It's an incredibly smart segment, and since I live in California, the news is always very relevant. I think that all areas f the country should have a radio show like this. Food news isn't just for the foodies, it's an incredibly important political topic. Evan Kleiman is my HERO! I really look up to her and everything she has done with her life. See More

What a wonderful show. Evan always asks exactly the right questions, and features a consistent line-up of fantastic topics. Although I miss the old theme music, this is a show I could not do without.... Thank you to Evan and all the people who make it happen! See More

I appreciated the bit on the price of good restaurant food. I get it. I live in Seattle and love eating out here, however now I am dying to visit NYC for that broccoli dog. OMG yummy and unique!

I love going to The Pie Hole in downtown LA for my pie. They change their menu based on what's in season, so there is always something new to try. It's out of season, but their poached pear and cranbe...rry was probably my favorite pie ever! See More

Evan Kleiman's "Good Food" podcast is one my absolute favorites. It has opened my eyes to the many dimensions of the art of growing, preparing, and experiencing food. Wonderful!

Request for recommendation: are there good places to eat within walking distance of Disney Symphony Hall?

I don't think I've ever heard someone so happy on the radio. Helen Borges (sp?) on KJAZ would be right there too.

I am a huge fan of Evan's Good Food show on KCRW
Today KCRW's Matt Holzman bought a Soda Stream to make homemade seltzer. Here at the station we started to wonder...can a bottle of bubbly water improve your mood? Are you a sparkling water addict? And if so do you have a loyalty to certain brand or do you make your own?
