Bill Addison is the James Beard award-winning food critic for the Los Angeles Times and, in today's session, we go deep into his past, Ratatouille-style, and learn about his formative restaurant experiences (he still remembers the name of the waiter!), his obsession with Lebanese food, his capacity for self-criticism, and his mother's potato rolls. We also talk about his writing technique, L.A. as the greatest food city in America, and why he gets so mad when a restaurant sends over a free dish.

Hi, I'm Adam Roberts, and I like analyzing people's lunches. As one of the first food bloggers and a comedy writer for film and TV, I'm fascinated by the ways in which what we eat reveal who we are. Join me as I playfully tease out people's psychological issues as we talk about what everyone eats for lunch. DISCLAIMER: I am not a licensed lunch therapist. I do, however, make a killer BLT.
