In this week's episode of Good Food, we heard from cookbook author Naomi Duguid about the cuisine of the Uighur people from China, got a new take (or three!) on the milkshake, and were inspired by more descriptions of secret suppers. What were your favorite segments from the show?

Uighur Cuisine - Flatbreads, lamb kebabs, and melons, oh my! Although they live geographically in China, the cuisine of the Uighur people shows more Turkish and Arabic influence. We'll be checking out Naomi Duguid and Jeffrey Alford's book Beyond the Great Wall for more inspiration.

Summer Soup - Although it's hard to think beyond fresh gazpacho, Cliff Wright has certainly convinced us to try! His descriptions of chilled savory soups made with things like ground almonds and fresh peaches sounded delicious.

Milkshakes - Like chilled summer soups, milk shakes can be a foil for all sorts of flavors and ingredients. Adam Ried share some of his favorite milkshakes from cultures around the world.

Margo's Bark - Ever thought about making your own soda pop? Oscar Youd and his homemade root beer science project have definitely inspired us to give it a try!

A Razor, A Shiny Knife - Underground supper clubs are somewhere between home-cooked meal and fancy restaurant dinner - and they're becoming more and more popular! Hearing about this one from Michael Cirino and Daniel Castano, it's easy to see why!

What did you find inspiring from this past week's show?
