527: GRIMM FOOD: The World of the Brothers Grimm is Full of Culinary Allegory, from Poisoned Apples and Edible Cottages to Hungry Wolves and Starving Children

This week from the Test Kitchen, we discover the world of the Brothers Grimm and their connection to food. There is a preoccupation with food in their fairy tales, from the poisoned apple in "Snow White" and the gingerbread house in "Hansel and Gretel" to the cake and wine being brought to Granny in "Little Red Cape". We’ll taste wine with wine expert Stephen Meuse and we'll speak with food writer Adam Gopnik. Then we’ll head into the Test Kitchen to learn the best way to make chocolate chip cookies. And of course, we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
