Episode 127: Genetically Engineered Food

January 15, 2000

Did you know that most of us are eating genetically engineered foods at one time or another? Are these foods a miracle for farmers and consumers or an uncontrollable monster? Should we be concerned? We'll learn some basic facts about this complicated and controversial subject from Kim Klemon of Consumer Reports magazine. They researched an impressive overview of the subject and published the findings in the September 1999 issue.

Jane and Michael Stern have some thoughts on Zen and the art of the perfect corned beef hash, Master of Wine Mary Ewing Mulligan has lined up some great bargain Burgundies, and we'll drop in on the life of an Asian-American teen for whom food is a bridge between two worlds. Lynne gives us the recipes for her fabulous Vertically Roasted Chicken and Romagna Roast Potatoes, and the phone lines will be open for your calls. Featured clip: Bargain Burgundies
