One more food note: in case you’re looking for a great food podcast, my favorite is Evan Kleiman’s lovely Good Food, from Santa Monica.
The market report sometimes features (swoon) David Karp (and makes me – sitting in Upstate NY surrounded by squash and soft potatoes – lust for those gorgeous LA farmer’s markets), Evan is lively (without being irritatingly bubbly) and has great politics.
Best of all, she treats vegans like real people! It’s so heartrending. She even has these vegan dudes on once in a while, and while they definitely overuse veganaise and TVP (ick), and last week recommended using Baco Bits (yes, they are vegan), their recipe ideas are not half bad.
Yay for Evan Kleiman!
