BEST FOOD PODCAST James Beard Awards, Webby Awards


We visit a legendary pizzeria with a famously long line, then talk to scientists to try to figure out whether waiting to eat makes our food taste better -- or worse.

Serious Eats food science guru Kenji Lopez-Alt challenges some of Dan's eating innovations, then Sporkful listeners challenge Kenji with their own questions. Can The Sporkful stump Kenji?

How do you get an indecisive group to go to your preferred restaurant? Is pizza a type of flatbread? And if friends say your salsa’s too spicy, should you make milder salsa or get spicier friends?

By using a clever sandwich technique on a burger (which is a type of sandwich), a London restaurant has opened the door to a culinary wonderland, only to trip while crossing the threshold.

We all know that folding pizza makes it easier to get the slice into your mouth. But why exactly? An age old mathematical theorem explains the phenomenon.

In honor of the late Carol Grimaldi we're replaying this classic Sporkful, which covers slice folding technique, the art of using a coal oven, and what Mrs. Grimaldi taught her husband about pizza.
