This week on The Main Course Patrick and Katy discussed how to turn the "farm to fork" movement into a major shift from commodity food with Helene York of Bon Appetit Management Company. Ed Brown of Restaurant Associates also chimed in to discuss how green initiatives can help others do what he does: serve sustainable food to over 400,000 people a day nation wide. Aaron Oster of Salumeria Rosi brought and discussed some delicious cured meats, and had a heated discussion with Katy and Patrick about subtly moving people along during their restaurant experience to prevent unnecessary and borderline rude loitering. Rachel Saunders, Author of "The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook" discussed jams, jellies, berries and their hybrid cousin boysenberries. Finally Dana Cowin and Kate Krader of Food and Wine Magazine joined Top Chef judge Gale Simmons and Singapore food expert KF Seetoh for a discussion on food trucks, street food, and the definition of "Die Die Must Try". This episode was sponsored by Fairway: like no other market.

This week's Burning Down the House is a potpourri of news and thought from across the spectrum of architecture and design. Curtis begins with a tribute to the late great structural engineer Ysrael Seinuk, who taught at Cooper Union, the alma mater of Curtis and fellow architect Jacob Alspector, our guest this week. Next Curtis and Jacob (alspectorarchitecture.com) discuss the ever changing skyline of NYC, touching on the history of the Empire State Building and the future of the Vornado Real Estate Trust building. The Plaza and Pennsylvania hotels plus (the original) Penn Station also come up in this discussion of buildings new and old, good and bad, within the fluctuating world of NYC's built environment. This episode was sponsored by Tekserve: your one stop shop for all things Mac.
