Dan Pfeiffer, Dim Sum
Originally aired: Friday, August 31, 2018
"Pod Save America" co-host Dan Pfeiffer ate approximately 520 meals inside the White House when he worked 24/7 as President Barack Obama's Senior Advisor. What was the White House menu like? We will explore! Spoiler alert: the butter is molded into the shape of the Great Seal of the United States, and senior White House staff are eating PB&J for lunch.
On this week's episode of YLM, we take a deep dive into dim sum with Clarissa Wei, a Hong Kong based food writer and senior reporter for Goldthread. She explains why dim sum carts are going out of vogue and dumpling-obessed Rachel confesses that the carts give her anxiety.
Plus, the TV show Dan watches to decompress when news and politics get him down.
