All You Can Eat with Ayesha Curry, J. Kenji López-Alt and Gianna Ruggerio

This radio program from The Commonwealth Club draws on two separate events: "The Full Plate with Ayesha Curry" and "Every Night Is Pizza Night: J. Kenji López-Alt and Gianna Ruggiero." 

Many of us are cooking at home more often than ever before, but we still struggle to find new, quick recipes. Ayesha Curry knows this better than most—she’s a veteran cookbook author and working mother with limited time to make meals. But she also knows that finding balance between work and family life starts with gathering around the table to enjoy a home-cooked meal.

And Pipo, the main character in the new children's book Every Night Is Pizza Night, holds the sincerest love of all . . . for pizza. By cooking and tasting foods with six new friends, Pipo discovers that what makes a food “the best” transcends taste as only one ingredient in the melting pot of tradition, family and friendship. Written by the Food Lab’s J. Kenji López-Alt and illustrated by artist Gianna Ruggerio, Every Night Is Pizza Night highlights the importance of gastronomic diversity for children and adults alike.
