In this week's episode of Slate's Table to Farm podcast, Dan and co-host L.V. Anderson talk to a self-described "apple nerd," look at ways to get local apples, cook and eat an apple crisp, and play Apple Variety or New England Town.
Dan and Laura learn about how changes in the beef industry have affected the meat on your plate, how to select a good cut of beef, and what a lifelong butcher would do if his son became a vegetarian. Then Dan cooks a steak.
Along with Slate food and drink editor L.V. Anderson, Dan is co-hosting a new Slate podcast called Table to Farm. The show reverse engineers the food chain, exploring the origins of what we buy, cook and eat. Listen!
