October 4, 1997

Let the slurping begin! It's a look at noodles, one of the perfect comfort foods with Nina Simonds, author of Asian Noodles: Mouthwatering Dishes to Twirl, Slurp and Savor. Nina will take us through the world of pad thai, Vietnamese pho and noodle etiquette and share her recipe for rainbow peanut noodles. Jane and Michael Stern have been south sampling country hams and tell us where to find a great one. Tim from New York tries to Stump the Cook; our grocery guru, Al Sicherman, takes Lynne to the world of Halloween candy; and Lynne shares her recipe for Don Pomodoro sauce—a wonderful way to use those delicious, ripe tomatoes from the garden.
