In a pre-recorded but never-before-aired program, Mark Kurlansky joins us to discuss his new book, “The Food of a Younger Land.” It examines the diversity and variety of pre-war American cuisine. Using abandoned documents from the Federal Writers Project, Kurlansky looks at a forgotten America where food varied greatly from city-to-city and state-to-state.
Host: Michael Krasny
