Listen: Cheap Eats in San Francisco

Dan Leone tells us how to eat out and eat well for under $10 in San Francisco, a city known for restaurants with break-the-bank prices. He knows where you'll find the perfect bowl of noodles, or a turkey dinner at midnight, and leave with your credit card intact. Dan is the author of Eat This, San Francisco and the popular "Cheap Eats" column in the San Francisco Bay Guardian.

The Slow Food Movement recently concluded their annual Salone Del Gusto in Italy. Reporter Scott Haas was there, and has news of the vast array of artisan foods from around the world that tempted the thousands of participants. Jane and Michael Stern deliver their highly-researched dissertation on onion rings, kitchen gadget queen Dorie Greenspan talks juicers, and we'll hear from a competitive eater who is the current Carnegie Pickle Eating Champion.
