Join us for a brand new episode of The Splendid Table, providing abundant information on food preparation, appreciation, and culture.

This week's episode of The Splendid Table looks at the country cooking of Ireland with award-winning writer Colman Andrews. Andrews' most recent book, The Country Cooking of Ireland, was published November, 2009 by Chronicle Books. The Splendid Table airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on AM1370/FM-HD91.5-2.

Also this week, the Sterns are introducing us to the cousin of the Po'Boy in New Orleans. Jane and Michael Stern write the monthly column "Two For The Road" for Gourmet magazine, an ongoing, cross-country guide dedicated to ferreting out the best in American food. The Sterns' relentless quest takes them all over the country - checking out the offbeat and often going off the beaten path to places as varied as Mom's Cafe at the crossroads in Salina, Utah, to the foremost knish palaces of New York. The Sterns are the authors of more than 20 books, including Roadfood, Eat Your Way Across the USA,  and Chili Nation: The Ultimate Chili Cookbook with Recipes from Every State in the Nation.

The Splendid Table is a culinary, culture, and lifestyle one-hour program that celebrates food and its ability to touch the lives and feed the souls of everyone. Each week, award-winning host Lynne Rossetto Kasper leads listeners on a journey of the senses and hosts discussions with a variety of writers and personalities who share their passion for the culinary delights.
