On the table... and on the air.

Producer Rebecca Sheir offers food for thought with this series of appetizing features. Meet an Alaskan whose competitive cupcake-baking made her a national TV star, and learn why professional "gurgitation" is not for the weak of stomach. Hear the trials and tribulations of keeping Passover in the Last Frontier, and discover why baking sourdough is anything but a piece of cake. Plus, the dangers of a fish-eat-mouse world, and the ins-and-outs of becoming a certified beer judge.
