All About Breakfast with Food Historian Heather Arndt Anderson

Listen Now!

Breakfast — that beloved meal in which we “break” our after-dinner “fasts” — has a long and surprisingly rich history. Like, did you know eating it used to be considered sinful? In this episode, Marc chats with food historian Heather Arndt Anderson about the origins of the first meal of the day and how brunch became such a cultural event. Plus, he’s joined by Teddy Karounos, a longtime friend and owner of New York City’s Square Diner, for a conversation on breakfast as big business and the art of cooking the perfect egg.
