Mouthful launched on November 2, 1995, as an exploration of the farms and foods of Sonoma County. It was based, loosely, on host Michele Anna Jordan's first book, A Cook's Tour of Sonoma. Today, Mouthful continues to focus on the remarkable natural abundance of Sonoma County and the talents of those who work our fertile land, but we branch out, too, not only to surrounding counties but to the state, the country, and beyond. Over the years, guests have included artist, writer, and filmmaker Eleanor Coppola, Chef John Ash, restaurateur Alice Waters, chef Jacques Pepin, Julia Child, chef Eric Ripert, filmmaker Les Blank and hundreds of others, including several return visits by Mouthful's first guest, Steve Garner, co-host of The Good Food Hour on KSRO-AM.  

We like to think of Mouthful as a conversation around a dinner table, so pour yourself a glass of wine and join us every Sunday evening. If you can't tune in live, you can listen on demand using our free KRCB App. Although we sometimes talk about cooking, Mouthful is not a cooking show. We take the time to get to know our guests, we go beyond sound bites, and we look at food, wine, and farming in the larger context of our lives. We’re sometimes political, always passionate, sometimes serious, often lighthearted and occasionally even silly. If you eat, you’ll enjoy Mouthful. 

 Mouthful is a four-time James Beard Award Nominee for Electronic Journalism.
