Special Sauce with Ed Levine

Serious Eats

Serious Eats' podcast Special Sauce enables food lovers everywhere to eavesdrop on an intimate conversation about food and life between host and Serious Eats founder Ed Levine and his well-known/famous friends and acquaintances both in and out of the food culture.


In part two of his Special Sauce interview, Frank Bruni and I discuss a myriad of topics, from the current political and media climate, to what his family thinks of his multi-faceted career, to why neither an Obama nor a Trump meatloaf recipe appears in his and co-author Jennifer Steinhauer's bipartisan new cookbook, A Meatloaf in Every Oven, though Republicans Susan Collins and Paul Ryan and Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer contributed recipes. It's a Special Sauce episode like no other, filled with Bruni's insights on meatloaf and politics alike.
