Science, Food, Art, and Writing

4 segments

Industrial hygienist Monona Rossol starts us off with the latest research into PCBs and other dangerous chemicals in our homes and in our public schools. Then, food writer Molly O’Neill tells of travelling across the country in search of recipes from the best home cooks. Also, we find out about two exhibits currently at the Frick (which just celebrated its 75th anniversary): one features Velazquez’s portrait of Philip IV, and the other a collection of Spanish drawings from Ribera to Goya. Plus, three literary magazine editors compare notes!
