On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, food artist Jennifer Rubell makes us interact with art the way we do with food. Large scale installations are paired with public participation, illuminating the grandeur of society through dining and an art history discourse. From 1521 doughnuts nailed to a wall, or a cast of her own head made out of melting Fontina cheese, a mold is being broken of how we experience food and art as one. This program was sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

"As somebody who creates objects people touch and interact with, I know all too well why 'do not touch' is [enforced] at museums."

"Food is something that's incredibly broad. It can be everything from the most ephemeral unimportant thing, to something that is a carrier of tremendous meaning and cultural significance."

"I'm very interested in vernacular sculpture, meaning the things that you see around you that had to be sculpted or designed. I'm very interested in the form of those things, and our attachment to those forms. In food there are millions of examples of objects like that [such as a ketchup bottle]."

Do you what a “jellymonger” is? Let Bompas & Parr explain. On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, Sam (Bompas) and Harry (Parr) bring a mainstay of British cuisine across the pond to discuss it’s royal and humble legacy. But don’t think these boys are just about jellies and things that wobble. Their multi-sensory events are becoming things of legend; from a five ton walk-thru Chocolate Waterfall, a Rabbit Café filled with the albino pets, to a scratch and sniff ode to Peter Greenaway’s food-studded film, The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover, it all makes you want to stop and sit in a breathable cloud of gin & tonic (which they’ve also concocted). This episode was sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, we learn facts, not fiction about April Fools’ Day from the man of miscellany, Ben Schott. In Mr. Schott’s books, from annuals of Schott’s Almanacs to volumes of Schott’s Miscellanies, which include a Food & Drink edition, you’ll find all the needed trivia for your next dinner party. Lately, Mr. Schott’s exploration of the “Secret Languages” in bars and the restaurant world has appeared in the New York Times Op-Ed. This program was sponsored by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

"It's the footnotes of life that are the things that stick with me." [03:00]
