At a point in nearly everyone’s life, the point arrives where we are called upon to provide our own sustenance. Adulting! For some, this is daunting, daresay terrifying, and the task of preparing nutritious or even barely edible foods become a task, a chore, something to avoid when possible. Others, however, relish the challenge of a recipe, or go even further to blaze their own culinary trails, learning the artistry and alchemy of preparation, combination, presentation. Hail to thee, kitchen nerds — for you have our hearts, and our bellies. This session, we’re setting the table for a conversation about fan-caliber fascination with food and cooking. It might emerge from the love of family cooking history that evolves with the newest generation, or a a true geek’s immersion in trying new and innovative cooking technology. It could be a fanatical following of a famed chef or culinary personality, and exploration of the dishes, recipes, and styles they center upon. Whatever the flavor of fandom, when there’s this much passion in the mixture, you have to appreciate the results. We’re joined in studio by television editor, podcaster, and master-of-his-own-kitchen, Wil Hendandez, to discuss this fanatical fascination with food. Editor’s Note: For those interested in the #WhoAgainstGuns initiative mentioned during our “good news from the fandoms” segment, please visit the fundraiser site for details on how to get involved. We implore you to do so, and help spread the word about this campaign to combat gun violence!
