The language of food can tell us a lot about the history of food and culture.

Ted Genoways investigates the growth of the American meatpacking industry and its consequences on the quality of our farms, food and the health and safety of workers. Gail Simmons takes us behind the scenes of “Top Chef,” where she’s been a judge since 2006. Plus this week’s Please Explain is all about the language of food.
