The Splendid Table is a weekly exploration of food, cooking, and culture, embracing the entire subject of food as it touches our lives and feeds our souls. More than a cooking program, The Splendid Table is about meals as a gathering place, classic dishes and new discoveries, travel and other cultures, feeding a family on the run, and lots more. The series uses a discussion of food, both haute and humble, as a port of entry to an exploration of American traditions, culinary and otherwise.
Host Lynne Rossetto Kasper is prominent in the food community, and her list of contributors to The Splendid Table is a veritable who's who of well-known food authorities. Guests and commentators include Julia Child, Graham Kerr, Jacque Pepin, Mario Batali, Patricia Wells, Jane and Michael Stern, David Rosengarten, and Joshua Wesson, among many others.
The Splendid Table is a celebration of food, glorious food!
