Amy Eddings is the local host of “All Things Considered,” which airs from 4 PM until 8 PM weekdays. She started hosting in 2004, after long-time host JoAnn Allen left for the West Coast. Before ATC, Amy was a reporter. Her favorite topics were--and still are--garbage and recycling, which she still reports on whenever she can get out of the studio.
Tea and Pickle Break, 3:37 PM
Tuesday, October 11, 2011
Wandering back to the break room to get a cup of tea, I noticed the sign below.
I took a bite (despite the fact that I didn't think a pickle would go good with decaf Earl Grey tea). First came the sweet taste of dill, then the shock of horseradish, then dill again.
The "me" I needed to thank was colleague and WQXR morning host Jeff Spurgeon.
He gets them from the Horman's Best Pickles stand at a farmers' market near the West 4th Street subway stop. The market is near the small square at Sixth Ave. and Bleecker St.
Worth a look, and a bite, and a thank you to Jeff.
