PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Finally, when we're sitting back reliving good times, one of the best times we constantly go back to was our 20th anniversary show.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

We're doing a lot of cooking at home these days, learning interesting and exotic techniques for opening cans of Beefaroni.

BILL KURTIS: I like to do it the way mom used to do it - with a machete and a wild look in her eye.

SAGAL: To up our game a bit, we checked in with Samin Nosrat, the chef and cookbook author famous for "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat."

SAMIN NOSRAT: Thank you for having me. I'm so excited.
