American Cuisine with Paul Freedman and Laura Shapiro

American cuisine. Who knew?

Defining it and diving into its history is Paul Freedman, Yale history professor and author of the new American Cuisine: And How It Got This Way and the acclaimed Ten Restaurants That Changed America. Freedman sits down with award-winning food writer Laura Shapiro (What She AtePerfection SaladSomething from the Oven) to talk about America’s vibrant and diverse—if not always coherent—culinary history over 200 years (gumbo … canned peas … chicken parm … kale salad …) and what it all reflects about our national identity.
