Eating in Space

Listen: Eating in Space

Welcome to Splendid Table Selects, where we pull together some of our favorite interviews -- from the past and present -- to showcase conversations that surprised us, illuminated something new in our world, or have proven to be especially useful in the kitchen. In this Selects, contributor Noelle Carter talks with Col. Chris Hadfield, an astronaut who was the first Canadian commander of the International Space Station and is the author of An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth. Hadfield has enjoyed sharing via YouTube, social media and speaking engagements all aspects of life in space, chief among them eating and handling food in zero gravity. Listen to their conversation and see videos of Hadfield cooking in space at his website. Check out dozens of shrimp recipes you can make here on Earth at The Splendid Table's Pinterest page.

Thanks to our presenting sponsor Bob’s Red Mill for their support of this Splendid Table Selects podcast series.
