I discovered iTunes U this past summer and have filled many hours while out walking the dog with fascinating lectures on all sorts of topics. Yesterday, I listened to Annie Gray, a food historian, give a wonderfully entertaining talk on the history of Christmas dinner while I wrote out Christmas cards.
You don't have to download the iTunes U app as I've found a quick link here...
Annie Gray also appears on the panel of The Kitchen Cabinet. This BBC radio program can be downloaded as a podcast and never fails to teach me something about sublime flavour combinations, kitchen science, and what people around the globe enjoy as regional dishes. The host is particularly witty so humour is definitely a side dish here. Enjoy!
