New Year’s Food Resolutions 2018

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

'Tis the season to reflect on the past year and contemplate the year ahead. And here at The Sporkful, that means we're thinking about food -- what we loved this year and what we resolve to eat more of in the new year.

In this week's episode, Dan will report back to you on his 2017 food resolution -- more homemade whipped cream -- and we'll hear from you about which foods you resolve to eat more of in the New Year -- from gnocchi to bugs -- and why.


It's also a time of year for traditions, and our year-end ritual here at The Sporkful is to pull out our personal favorite episode from the past year to replay. (If you've ever wondered what we love listening here in Sporkful Headquarters -- well, now you know!)

And this year, it's (drum roll please)...

Patti LaBelle Brings Her Frying Pans On Tour

Patti LaBelle isn't just a music icon -- she's also a food icon.

She has several bestselling cookbooks (including a new book out this spring), a Cooking Channel show, and a line of desserts at Walmart that caused quite a stir when her sweet potato pie went viral a few years back.

In this episode, Patti tells us why she always cooks for herself when she's out on tour. And she recalls meals on the road much earlier in her career -- when she was touring the segregated South in the 1960s.
