The Splendid Table
Sundays at Noon
The Splendid Table has been at the forefront of food issues and policies since its inception. Long before eating local became a catchphrase and farmers' markets became ubiquitous, The Splendid Table was talking about the changes needed in the food system and what was happening on the grassroots level. In fact, when The Splendid Table first went on the air, founding host Lynne Rossetto Kasper had to make sure to define such terms as "organic" and "sustainable" for listeners. Today those terms have become part of the everyday lexicon, and people's hunger for wholesome food and the rituals surrounding it has only increased.
In 2017, The Splendid Table will begin an exciting new chapter. After hosting for 21 seasons, Lynne will retire at the end of the year, with award-winning New York Times Magazine columnist and Top Chef Masters judge Francis Lam becoming the new host. Francis has been a frequent contributor and guest host (and fan favorite) on the program since 2010. Lynne will continue to contribute to the program until she fully retires at the end of 2017.
From its first mealtime brainstorm to the award-winning weekly program it is today, The Splendid Table continues its celebration of food and the roles it plays in our lives.
