Audible Editor Reviews

In this 2006 program from the iconic New York City cultural center, Mario Batali joins David Kamp in a conversation about the evolution of gourmet food in America. From a time when there was only one kind of lettuce - iceberg - to a time of endless innovation and diversity on the kitchen table, Batali and Kamp have witnessed radical culinary changes over the last few decades.

Kamp is an author and humorist who has contributed to Vanity Fair, GQ, and other publications of note. Batali is an award-winning chef who has made an art form out of cooking. The 92nd Street Y puts their humorous heads together in this jocular and relatable foodie conversation.
