What's wrong with Jell-O? Nothing, says food commentator Nancy Leson. Plenty, accoridng to Dick Stein.

It shakes, it shimmies, sometimes it's got marshmallows in it. It's that wiggly dessert Seattle Times food writer Nancy Leson recently rhapsodized about in her blog.  But KPLU's Dick Stein is a fellow who's not so mellow about Jell-O.

Listen to their weekly conversation, and then tell us about your relationshiop to the ubiquitous gelatin, known by many names.

You can hear past Food for Thought conversations, and read Nancy's All You Can Eat blog at The Seattle Times.

Dick Stein joined KNKX in January 1992. He retired in 2020 after three decades on air. During his storied radio career, he hosted the morning jazz show, co-hosted and produced "Food for Thought" with Nancy Leson and wrote and directed the Jimmy Jazzoid live radio musical comedies and 100 episodes of Jazz Kitchen.
Nancy Leson is an award-winning food writer, radio personality, cooking instructor and public speaker who learned much of what she knows about food during her first career: waiting tables. Seattle readers know her as the mouth that scored — for the better part of two decades — as restaurant critic and food columnist for the Seattle Times. These days, when she’s not chatting about recipes or interviewing makers and shakers in the food world for KNKX, she helps end hunger, one loaf at a time, as the Edmonds hub coordinator for the Community Loaves project.
