Episode 17 Summer
In this episode, Masa Takayama, master of sushi, gets serious about hamburgers with Jay McInerney. The rising British art star, Lucy Sparrow, tells Alex Guarnaschelli why being an artist is more difficult than being a stripper and why her latest installation is a bodega made of felt. The author of Cork Dork, Bianca Bosker, leads the rousing Rosé-fueled return of The Prince Street Wine Club with Drink Pink author Victoria James and RAMONA wine cooler mastermind, Jordan Salcito. And learn why an Italian grandmother kept two kitchens in her home from her grandson, The New York Times' Frank Bruni.
Episode 16 Vertical Farming
Very soon, grocery stores will be cloud-controlled mini-farms with shelves of growing produce -- according to the co-founders of the Brooklyn startup Smallhold. Hear how their ideas for vertical farming could impact your home, your supermarket and even outer space. British sisters, Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley, are best-selling authors, TV hosts and restaurateurs who believe food should make you feel good. But their approach to healthy eating is more traditional than new age, focusing on fat and flavor rather than potions and powders. They're here to whip our host, Howie Kahn's diet, and yours, into shape. What does Hannah Cheng, co-founder of NYC's most delicious Taiwanese-style restaurant, believe was the best thing she ate this month? (Hint: it's from chef Kevin Fink's Emmer & Rye in Austin, Texas). All that, and Mel Brooks, too! Tune in for his favorite food memory--and his dining tips for both coasts.
Episode 15 Conflict & Resolution
How do you feed 30 million people? We sat down with David Miliband, president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee, to discuss the unprecedented famine spreading across South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and Nigeria and what his organization is doing about it right now. And how you can help, too. Can cooking and agriculture help foster civil rights and social justice? In his provocative new book, The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South, author and historian John T. Edge argues, in the hands of regional heroes, they do. He's in conversation with poet Kevin Young, director of Harlem's Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, soon-to-be poetry editor of The New Yorker and a man with Southern roots of his own. Finally, one of the heroes of Edge's book, Mashama Bailey, chef-partner of The Grey in Savannah, Georgia explains the enduring magic of that city's "Thrill Ladies" in a Madeleine Moment you won't want to miss.

Live from Prince Street
with Alex Stupak
Is creativity an act of rebellion? What's mustard seed doing in a taco? Is there a store-bought tortilla worth eating? And how did this self-proclaimed Masshole, interested in vandalism, punk rock and avant-garde pastry, become one of contemporary Mexican cuisine's leading voices and greatest chefs? Empellón's Alex Stupak reveals these answers and more to chef Alex Guarnaschelli--and a live audience--at Dean & DeLuca's flagship store in Manhattan.
Episode 13 Identity
Does what you eat—and cook—reveal the real you? New York Times columnist Frank Bruni talks about how politicians use food to manipulate you and why co-writing his new book A Meatloaf in Every Oven was therapy for him. In Barbara Lynch's new memoir, Out of Line, Boston's most celebrated chef confesses that the worst days of her life led to her best, as she cooked her way out of a tough Southie childhood. Food reflects Camille Becerra's passion for healing and beauty, at her hot new Manhattan restaurant, De Maria. Plus Alex Guarnaschelli's fear of lobsters, Giorgio DeLuca's new favorite dining destination, mousseron mushrooms, Chuck Schumer's meatloaf, how to cook with sumac—and our most moving Madeleine Moment yet.
Episode 12 Cleanup
Dan Barber, in London, makes food waste the new black. How April Bloomfield turned her fear of the hamburger into gold. Tasmanian journalist Craig Leeson wants to shock you—to save the earth with his film, A Plastic Ocean. From upstate New York, a Brazilian-American man has started a shrimp revolution. And Gillian Jacobs, star of Netflix's Love, calls us from Los Angeles with her Madeleine Moment (spoiler alert: sprouts are involved).
Live From Prince: Martha Stewart
Caviar with oligarchs, pot brownies with Snoop, baking with spelt and anesthetizing a chicken before slaughter: welcome to the world of Martha Stewart. LIVE FROM PRINCE STREET, our new podcast spinoff, features the kinds of interviews that deserve a show all to themselves. The first one brings together Martha Stewart, on the occasion of publishing her 88th book, A NEW WAY TO BAKE, and author and journalist Bill Buford, whose own new book, DIRT, about moving his family to France to learn to cook like the French masters comes out later this year.
