The Splendid Table is known as "The radio program for people who love to eat".
Lynne Rossetto Kasper has hosted the show since its inception 17 years ago, and has guided the program’s mission to be at the forefront of food issues and policies.
When The Splendid Table began, Kasper had to define for listeners terms like "organic" and "sustainable", words that are now part of the everyday lexicon.
Kasper is visiting Vermont for this weekend’s VPR Picnic in Brattleboro. She spoke with VPR’s Neal Charnoff prior to the event.
