The Splendid Table
Saturday at 3pm
- Hosted by Francis Lam
The Splendid Table is the show for life’s appetites.
A culinary, culture and lifestyle program, The Splendid Table hosts our nation's conversations about cooking, sustainability and food culture and introduces us to generations of food dignitaries. Host Francis Lam explores different cultures, cuisines and ideas, as well as the small personal stories that come out of the expansive world of the table, creating a celebration of food and life.
As a former restaurant cook and Culinary Institute of America graduate, Francis can handle virtually any food query and loves taking listener’s calls. He is keenly interested in people and their stories and believes that one of the keys to understanding people better is to learn what they cook and how they eat. His resume extends to judging Bravo’s hit show, Top Chef Masters, a spinoff of Top Chef, and serving as an Eat columnist for The New York Times Magazine. In addition to hosting The Splendid Table, Francis is Editor-at-Large at Clarkson Potter, a division within Penguin Random House that is a leader in cookbook publishing.
The Splendid Table also airs weekly America's Test Kitchen segments featuring a variety of America's Test Kitchen personalities including Bridget Lancaster, Jack Bishop, Tucker Shaw, Doc Willoughby, Molly Birnbaum and Dan Souza.
