Recommended Reading with Food Book Fair
About This Show
We love great writing about eating — cookbooks, food memoir, reportage, but also film, radio, TV, viral videos — and we’re here to tell you about what to bookmark, save, share, borrow, and buy. Food Book Fair explores recommended reading (or listening, or watching) with the help of our friends, fam, and collaborators in the worlds of food and media. Food Book Fair is a series of year-round events featuring the best of food books, independent magazines, radio, television, film, and more.

Episode 3: Politics and Pleasure, Poetry and Community Radio: Riding the Raft of the Medusa with Julian Richards
5 days ago
Today on #RecommendedReading on we chop it up with dear friend, reformed photo agent, visionary labrador of Table on Ten, and man of many hats and talents, Julian Richards. We'll talk about how to reconcile the worlds of political reportage and lifestyle blogging, literary inspirations and community radio, and you can hear us drink spritzes on air. We might even read Jack Gilbert live. Two decades in the photography industry left Julian Richards with an acute understanding of all things trivial, priming him perfectly for a four year stint in the food industry with Table on Ten. In both cases he clung doggedly to the personal flotation device of creative skepticism. He stands now in his Speedo, contemplating the greasy springboard into senility; but there’s a reverse pike somersault or two in him yet.
