In Sporkful Podcast 147, Dan heads to the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center to talk to people about Christmas dinner strategies and preferences. Two Eaters propose novel pairings for mac and cheese, two others discuss Latino pork preparations, and another advocates brute force to displace relatives competing for prized dishes. One mom shares her recipe for fruitcake, and another describes her Italian family's Christmas Eve shellfish feast. Plus, a married couple calls in to ask Dan to mediate a dispute over the correct way to drink water.
