  2. Kitchen Cabinet: Oxford

    Jay Rayner hosts a new food panel show. Every week the expert team visit a different interesting food location in the UK and answer cooking questions from a live audience.

    In a food science special, the experimental psychologist Professor Charles Spence discusses the relationship between food perception and taste. The panel tests the effects of cutlery on our taste buds, and we ask whether Margaret Thatcher was really responsible for soft-scoop ice cream. We find out whether the panel members believe they are better cooks than their mothers, ask how not to commit a sausage faux pas, and question why the British have a peculiar love for Marmalade.

  4. Food as fine art | PRI’s The World

    In the Geo Quiz, we’re looking for the Moon City. So where is it? For starters it’s not on the moon. Rather it’s in Cundinamarca, one of the 30 or so states that make up Colombia. Cundinamarca is near the center of Colombia, its capital is the mega city of Bogotá.

    So the town we’re looking for is just a several miles north of Bogotá. It’s name derives from the Chibchan language, though it’s not a language you’re likely to hear – because it’s considered extinct. It was once spoken by the South American Indians who lived near Bogotá before the Spanish conquest – but the Chibchan word for “moon” is the name of the town we’re after. These days, some might just call this town “carne.”
