Traveling feels like a distant memory this year, but travel author and show host Rick Steves shows us how we can travel while staying put. And, it’s Food Friday! We take a look at simple and versatile recipes from The Well-Plated Cookbook: Fast, Healthy Recipes You’ll Want To Eat. These conversations are part of a holiday broadcast from interviews that happened earlier in 2020.
