1 | When White People Say Plantation

EThe word "plantation" pops up a lot in the food world – Plantation Mint Tea, Plantation Chicken, Plantation Rum. But it's not a culinary term. It doesn't indicate certain spices or cooking methods. So what are white people in food who use this word trying to evoke? Inspired by a piece by food writer Osayi Endolyn, we go on a mission to find out. In the process, we try to learn something about whiteness in America. Today's sponsors: Go toLarabar.comto explore all the fun flavors.

Claire Saffitz Teaches the Internet How to Bake

We go behind the scenes of one of the web's most beloved food shows, Gourmet Makes, with host Claire Saffitz of the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen.

Can You Spot A Fake Chef?

Why Food Is Like Fashion with Style Icon Simon Doonan

Simon Doonan has been called "the world's most famous window dresser," but he never wanted to be that stereotype of a fashion person, looking down his nose at everybody. He's always encouraged people to "dress like themselves." In other words, his approach to fashion is a lot like Dan's approach to food. And yet, people still expect both of them to be judgmental. So what does that say about our culture? And how did Simon become so self-assured? Plus, Simon talks about self-help, Marianne Williamson, and surviving the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.
