Join hosts Avery and Lena Cochrane (and sometimes guests) as they sample, rate, and talk about fun foods.

Listen to an amusing debate about the assessment of a different food theme each week. This couple may not always agree, but they will for sure ridicule each other for not seeing eye to eye. Listen weekly to hear delightful banter about yummy foods!
