Does watching culinary programming on TV make us better cooks? Join Padma Lakshmi, co- host of Top Chef, and food writer Amanda Hesser for an enlightening discussion of the world of cooking shows, including what they tell us about ourselves as cooks and people and what they teach us about society today. Other panelists include Kathleen Collins (author, Watching What We Eat: The Evolution of Television Cooking Shows) and Charlie Trotter (host, PBS’s The Kitchen Sessions.)


Moderated by Alexandra Leaf
