This week we've got a feast of food stories. Host Tess Vigeland takes a winding tour of cheap eats in Los Angeles with L.A. Times food critic Jonathan Gold. Our cheap food pursuit continues with a recipe tester from Cooking Light Magazine who was tasked with creating five dinners for a family of four -- on just a $50 budget. We talk about a pair of books that deal with how we produce and consume food in the U.S. today. Plus, a little Halloween fun. And go virtual grocery shopping through the decades with our simulator.
