This Is TASTE 274: Susan Spungen 

Susan Spungen is an author, a food stylist, and a real food media legend. She was the founding food editor at Martha Stewart Living, and she has worked in television and film, including teaching Meryl Streep how to flip an omelet. On this episode, we learn about food in 1980s New York, about Susan’s job interview process with Martha, and about her famous sister. We also talk about her wonderful new book, Veg Forward, and why tomatoes will always be our favorite vegetable. Or is it a fruit?
