Here at the Splendid Table we have been celebrating the intersection of food and life for over two decades. We've learned that food is that common denominator that unites us all and provides a base from which we can learn about ourselves, each other and our world.

With that in mind, we are gathering your stories around food, some of which we may produce and use on-air. We want to hear about a moment that changed the way you see the world because of food. We are looking for stories about friends, stories about faith and truth, stories that touch on class or race or gender or maybe a comic scene from a family dinner. Or an intimate moment when your life intersected with food in a meaningful way to bring you a bigger glimpse of  the world.

Send us your personal food story by email at our Contact Us page. Or consider sending us a short audio message by using your smartphone's voice/audio recorder or app. Try to keep your audio clip to under two minutes if possible, and email it to us at

We look forward to hearing from you, learning more about how food affects your life and relationships with those around you.
