British chef and maverick, Stefan Gates plays with his food and brings glow-in-the-dark jello to parties. Gates teaches us the art of the interactive meal with his new book, The Extraordinary Cookbook: How to Make Meals Your Friends Will Never Forget.

Mexican chef, Pati Jinich, host of PBS's "Pati's Mexican Table" shares the traditional celebration of The Day of the Dead. Roadfood experts, Jane and Michael Stern bring us a Chicago classic from Hot Doug's Encased Meat Emporium. And, from the darkside, Joel Levy covers poison from his book Poison: A Social History.

Jane and Michael Stern's Roadfood

Hot Doug's colorful shrine of "encased meats" serves hot dog styles from around the country alongside his own special concoctions like the foie gras hot dog or Philly Cheesesteak beef sausage. Come on Friday or Saturday for the duck fat french fries.
