Your Last Meal with Rachel Belle
About This Show
What would your last meal be? Host Rachel Belle asks every guest this question - but that’s just the beginning! Each dish’s origins, preparation, and cultural influence are among the many stones upturned as Rachel consults chefs and culinary anthropologists, fishmongers and fry cooks on her quest to explore every facet of Your Last Meal. Twice monthly. Original music by Prom Queen.

Maria Shriver has spent a lifetime in the public eye, but there's one thing none of us know about the award-winning journalist and author... until now: What she would eat for her last meal! On this episode of YLM, Rachel gets to the bottom of perhaps the most iconic American food of all - the hamburger. She learns about the earliest origins of the dish from burger authority, documentarian, and tv host George Motz, whose book "The Great American Burger Book" is about to release its 3rd edition. Thrillest writer Kevin Alexander traveled the USA and ate 330 burgers in a year, then compiled a list of the 100 best burgers in the country. Which burger is best? You'll have to listen to find out! Buy Maria's new book "I've Been Thinking: Reflections, Prayers and Meditations for a Meaningful Life" wherever books are sold. And finally, we are humbled and honored to announce that Your Last Meal has been nominated for a prestigious James Beard Award for Best Podcast! Rachel and Aaron will be attending the award ceremony in NYC on April 27. Fingers crossed!

LOVE this Podcast!
Host Rachel is so fun and easy to listen to. I totally look forward to each new episode and wish I lived near her sponsor for some bourbon! :) I listen when I'm running and invariably need to go and find whatever food being spotlighted during the show. ~Its a great reward and motivator!
