I am addicted to NPR. Since I am in Germany I can't just tune in to 89.1 like I did back home. However, thanks to modern technology, I can download podcasts of my favorite shows. One of my favorite shows is Splendid Table, a really cool cooking show I like to listen to when I am cooking dinner. At one point in the show the host, Lynn Rosetto Kasper, plays a game show called "Stump the Cook." A caller names five ingredients they really have in their kitchen then Lynn has to create a dish they would actually eat.
The episode I was listening to tonight originally aired on January 9th. The caller for the stump the cook segment was calling from Malawi. No seriously she really was! Not only that she was a peace corps volunteer who had no fridge and would be cooking over an open flame. Tough challenge for Lynn, but she pulled it off. What I really want to know is if she is some place that has no fridge and not stove, how is it that she had a phone to call the states, and how is she listening to the Splendid Table?
