Lyndon Rossetto Kasper?

  • 7

Recently on NPR I heard a lovely piece by a gentleman discussing food... and after about 2 sentences I realized that his pacing, his vocabulary, and even his ideas sounded just like LRK.
He is Greg Patent, the co-host of Montana Public Radio's The Food Guys and his piece was about making souffles:

So, here's my query-- same writers? A "set style" for food writers? People copying LRK? Radio speakers/ personalities all rhapsodize about food the same way?

  1. In my experience, NPR sounds like NPR. I'm really happy they have a good website so I can read their stories more often than I listen to them because the similarity in how story after story sounds bugs me for some reason.

    1. LRK's program is not produced by NPR, they could be copying her style however.

      The Splendid Table is produced by American Public Media in St. Paul.

      1. Who's Lyndon Rossetto Kasper? Does Lynne have a brother?

          I think that was a joke; i.e., he sounds like he could be related to her.
