This week, we speak to New York Times reporter Michael Moss about the Dead Pit, a USDA livestock research facility in Nebraska that has caused the deaths of thousands of animals in the name of higher profits. We’ll taste vegetable broth, and we’ll discover Italian white wines with expert Stephen Meuse. Then we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn the secrets to almost hands-free risotto. And of course, we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions. Originally aired March 19-26, 2015. Available for rerun September 22-28, 2016.
