Hosted by uber-foodies Robbie Bell and Nancy Ancrum, “Join Us at the Table: A Culinary Lifestyle Show” seeks to educate and entertain our listening audience on the impact of culture on our eating and dining habits. We take a look at how ethnic, national, regional and personal traditions around the world influence what we eat – where foods come from, how we prepare it. Join Us at the Table capitalizes on Americans’ burgeoning interest in dining well, cooking healthfully, pairing wine with food and how food professionals work. In pursuit of our mission, Join Us at the Table conducts lively, informative interviews with restaurateurs, chefs, caterers, specialty markets owners, food growers and others involved in the food and food-service industry. In addition, the show features authors, critics wine experts, recipes, food-related current events and trivia. Our goal is to have our listeners eat better, cook better, live better, learn about food and have fun while you do it!
