This week on The Main Course Patrick and Mike Edison sit down with Ron Silver of NYC's (and Japan's) favorite diner Bubby's for a discussion on food safety and how much power the government should (or shouldn't) have over recalling our food. Judy McGuire (author of "How Not to Date") stops by for a discussion on dating in New York and beyond. Plus the gang cover a bevy of far-reaching topics touching on everything from the Mosque at Ground Zero (good?) to blueberry bagels (bad!). Tune in for Heritage Cooking with Chef Steve Pope, who focused this week on crispy skin! This episode was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.
