"You know the most important thing about a family and meals is that they eat together and that they have a conversation around a dinner table," Mimi advises a new mom this week. "It doesn't really matter who cooked the food, as long as there's good nourishing food for them to have."
It must be an "every other" Thursday again -- because The Sporkful's special series, Ask Mimi, is back.
In these episodes, taped live on stage, legendary food writer Mimi Sheraton offers advice on food and life to listeners and celebrity guests.
This week, Mimi helps a new mother figure out how to juggle her career with her desire to make home-cooked meals for her family.
Plus writer and radio host Brendan Francis Newnam of the Paris Review podcast (and formerly of Dinner Party Download), asks Mimi for advice about how to make the most of cooking for one and eating alone.
If you want to hear the first season of Ask Mimi, sign up for Stitcher Premium with code SPORKFUL. The first month's free and you get access to our whole back catalog plus much more Stitcher goodness, like all the concerts from Weird Al's last tour.
