Hidden Kitchens | WAMU 88.5 - American University Radio

Hidden Kitchens

We travel the country and we travel in time in search of hidden kitchens and little-known corners of American food culture. From the Crossroads in Mississippi to the Birth of Rice-a-Roni in San Francisco, we hear kitchen stories and music from Michael Pollan, Rosemary Clooney, Robert Johnson and Super Chikan. Entertaining, surprising, and soulful, a Kitchen Sisters' portrait of American life through food.
