Reflections of food and cooking in our kitchens and in our lives

Cook's Notebook tells stories - 1st person, fictional and news related - about food and life. It's not about reading a recipe or explaining a cooking technique, yet there's always a nugget of information for the listener. And they'll never hear the words 'yummy' or 'delicious' to describe food.

Segments are broadcast weekly on WCAI & WNAN during ME, D2D and WESAT and run about three minutes, not including host intros/outros.

Promos available upon request.
