About Us

The Splendid Table has always connected people through the common language of food and eating.

It’s a food show where everyone is welcome. Produced by American Public Media.

And bee researcher Bernardo Niño discusses what makes a healthy bee colony and takes us inside the mysterious of colony collapse disorder.
