Friday Food Show

Our summery food odyssey begins with a trip to a fruit orchard, where blackberries and peaches are now in season, before heading back to the studio for ideas from a chef for how to use these tasty fruits in the kitchen. The food critics then join us on a search for the best restaurant patios in Kansas City.

  • Gabe Spurgeon, orchard manager, South Baldwin Farms
  • Michael Foust, chef and owner, The Farmhouse in the City Market, Black Sheep and Market on 39th Street
  • Jenny Vergara, Feast Magazine
  • Danelle Lehman, Open Belly Podcast
  • Mary Bloch, Around the Block KC
People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
