Monday, we mark Labor Day: a holiday to pay tribute to American workers and the labor movement, and also the unofficial end of summer. It's a time when folks all across Massachusetts gather, most vaccinated and masked this year, for that final sunny party--before the yellow buses come for most kids, and before pumpkin spice flavoring is truly unavoidable.

And for a lot of us, that last summer shebang involves food. Lots of it. We talk a lot about food on this show: from the love of seafood back in July or the virtues of sandwiches back in August.

This hour on Radio Boston, we bring you three recent conversations about food, particularly food we enjoyed during this pandemic. From firing up the grill one last time this summer, to pickling the bounties of summer for the fall, and enjoying winter cookies, all year 'round.

This program aired on September 6, 2021.
