Episode 28: A Look at Etiquette

August 2, 1997

It's a look at 90's etiquette with Peggy Post, the latest of the Post Family to update the classic book Emily Post's Etiquette. How, exactly, are we supposed to deal with a quesadilla, anyway? Jane and Michael Stern lament the loss of the Woolworth's Lunch Counter and trace the origins of Frito Pie. Food and humor columnist Al Sicherman examines corn-on-the-cob etiquette; Cecile from Charlotte plays Stump the Cook; we have a remembrance of dinner with Lenny—Lenny Bernstein, that is! And Lynne talks wood-fired ovens and shares a recipe for fresh lime and chile for corn on the cob.
