Episode 117: The Gourmet Prescription

October 16, 1999

The low-carbohydrate/high-protein diet fad seems to never end, but are we destined to eat slices of plain turkey the rest of our lives? We talk with Deborah Chud, M.D. and author of The Gourmet Prescription, a book devoted to flavorful low-carb cooking. The Sterns take us to St. Louis for the St. Paul Sandwich, minimalist cook Mark Bittman talks octopus, cheesemonger Steve Jenkins tastes cheeses from the Franche-Conte region of France, and Master of Wine Mary Ewing Mulligan wants you to set up a wine tasting at your next get-together.
