Episode 308 of 447 episodes

This week in the magazine, Jane Kramer reviews "Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat," by the British food writer and historian Bee Wilson. It's more than a book review, though: The New Yorker's European correspondent brings into it her own passion for cooking and her years of writing about food. In this week's New Yorker Out Loud, Sasha Weiss visits Kramer in her New York apartment to talk about cooking, kitchens, and why food is so central to her life. Also, James Surowiecki weighs in on Yahoo's decision to ban telecommuting.
