    Food is all encompassing: how we buy it, store it, and celebrate with it. On today's show, we'll look at our relationship to food, from simple bananas to an unusual place to dine where the waiters are visually impaired and you eat in the dark. A cultural psychologist examines how we perceive what's on our plates, and we'll hear about "The Short History of the American Stomach". And, if you think you'd like to win the Pillsbury Bake-off contest, hear how one woman took the prize.
