NPR's Daniel Zwerdling is known for his hard-hitting and award-winning investigative stories. We decided to give him a break - and let him report on one of his favorite subjects: food.

DANIEL ZWERDLING: Food was one of my first passions. When I came to NPR many, many, many, many, many years ago, I wrote a lot about farmers and agriculture and the food industry and cooking and chefs. So when I heard that you were having an occasional food segment here on WEEKEND EDITION SUNDAY, I thought this would be the place where I could say in baritone tones the sauce was smoking(ph).

(Soundbite of laughter)

ZWERDLING: Just kidding, of course.

HANSEN: Coming soon on our food segment, Daniel Zwerdling gets to the bottom of cheese sambouseks.

This is WEEKEND EDITION from NPR News. I'm Liane Hansen.
