The Splendid Table got its start as a call-in show on Minnesota Public Radio in the 1990s. Today the show is hosted by food writer Francis Lam, who took over from Lynne Rossetto Kasper in 2018. Recent episodes are featured on the front page of the website. For a full archive dating back to 1999 check out the Episodes page. Weekly installments cover topics such as safe practices for buying and preparing food during the COVID-19 pandemic (see "Episode 704: How to Shop and Eat Safely Now") and the finer points of alcohol (see "Episode 701: The Culture of Drinking"). The site also has a Stories section with hundreds of interviews and culinary insights, as well as some culinary lessons in video format. And, of course there is a searchable and browsable database of thousands of recipes. At the top of the Recipes page, users can filter by category, such as Cheap Eats and Comfort Food.
