New Year’s Food Resolutions 2017

This week's episode of The Sporkful podcast is up! Listen through the player or iTunes/Podcasts app. (And please subscribe!)

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Product 19, "the most beloved cereal you've never heard of."  Breakfast at the Pashman household will never be the same again. 

It’s the season to reflect on the past year of eating and take a moment to kick back, relax, and consider our meals in the new year ahead. With that in mind, we have a few year-end traditions here at The Sporkful.

We'll hear from you about which foods you resolve to eat more of in the New Year, ranging from pizza to avocados to kimchi to pie.

Then, as in years past, Dan will choose one of his personal favorite episodes from the year to replay for us, which is (drum roll please)...

Pho the Love of Slurping Noodles!

Pho (rhymes with "duh") is like a buffet in a bowl. There are just so many different ways to combine the noodles, meat, broth, and add-ons -- like bean sprouts, basil, lime, chilies, and hoisin sauce (below).


But for Dan, eating Vietnam's beloved breakfast dish can be stressful:

"I always felt like I wasn’t quite eating it right," he confesses in this week's episode. "There was a flavor combination I wanted to unlock, but I just couldn’t find the key."

Enter Chef Charles Phan (below) -- famous for his masterful Vietnamese cooking at San Francisco's The Slanted Door restaurant. Chef Charles gives us expert advice on composing the perfect bite of pho.


Later in the show, Dan talks to Professor David Hu from the Georgia Institute of Technology -- a mechanical engineer and an expert in the science of slurping noodles. Yeah, it gets weird.

And finally, Dan will reveal his 2017 food resolution.
