Food intersects with our lives in more ways than we think. Burnt Toast chases those stories to give listeners the perfect pieces of cocktail party fodder—all inside of a commute’s time. From James Beard Award-nominated host and producer Kenzi Wilbur, and Food52. Part of the Panoply Network.

Myths and Magic of Milk
Throughout history, the same thing we eat with our morning cereal has inspired myth, magic, and superstition—like the fact that if you don't sit still after drinking a glass, it'll turn to cheese in your stomach. We speak with historian Deborah Valenze to dig into our complicated relationship with milk, sparing none of the strangest misconceptions.

Great interviews, thought provoking
I've really enjoyed this podcast. Lots of stories and the interviews have been interesting. A good one to start with is Man vs. Meatloaf. The interviews are the strongest in my opinion - just a nice conversation and Food52 really has an appreciation for food and cooking that comes through in those interviews. I don't live in NYC and am not really a foodie so everything on the podcast sounds a bit new and interesting to me. Good way to keep in touch with what food writing is like today.

Too pretentious, too whispery
After listening to a few episodes I found the content lacking maturity and experience, yet full of NYC pretension. The vocal style of the host not only sounds like a child (high pitched, quiet and vocal fry), but seriously lacks vocal projection.
