The Splendid Table


A culinary, culture and lifestyle program, The Splendid Table (Sunday noon – 1 p.m.), hosts our nation’s conversations about cooking, sustainability and food culture and introduced us to generations of food dignitaries.

Hosted by award-winning food writer Francis Lam, you can expect a modern, multicultural weekly snapshot of the food world — exploring different cultures, cuisines, and ideas, as well as the small personal stories that come out of the expansive world of the table. As a former restaurant cook and culinary school graduate, Lam can handle virtually any food query and loves taking listener’s calls. He is keenly interested in people and their stories and believes that one of the keys to understanding people better is to learn what they cook and how they eat. The Splendid Table frequently visits with the test cooks at America’s Test Kitchen to discuss a wide range of topics including recipes, ingredients, techniques and kitchen equipment.
