This week, we’ll welcome someone with a very special culinary contribution to the record-breaking episode – “Forgive and Regret.” With this episode The Simpsons officially surpassed “Gunsmoke” as the longest-running scripted American prime time television series. The episode features a very special apple pie recipe from Mona Simpson. In real life the recipe was provided by author, chef, restaurateur, and radio host of KCRW’s Good Food – the wonderful Evan Kleiman! She’ll give us a behind the scenes look at the pie recipe, and discuss how her recipe made it into this episode. Over the years, she’s also had a number of friendships with several producers of the show, and she’ll tell us what it’s like to cater Simpsons writers poker game nights. Tweet us your favorite Simpsons food moments @simpsonspod and don’t forget to tag @evankleiman, too!
