We have a tradition here at the Apple Seed where every time someone joins our team or has to say "farewell", we have lunch at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Provo: El Gallo Giro. We recently said goodbye to our assistant producer, Makena Bauss, and while we were eating we got to talking about some of our favorite dishes and we all agreed that food can leave some strong impressions whether we like it or hate. In this episode the stories are all about food: weird obsessions, phobias, and times that food brought people together or drove them apart.
