Renewing America's Food Traditions, on NPR

The author of the book, Renewing America's Food Traditions, Paul Nabhan, has a talk with Andrea Seabrook of NPR. In his newly published book Nabhan argues that in order to maintain our diverse food traditions, we must create local markets for such regional specialties as grass fed bison and Tennessee fainting goat (yes, it seems that they keel over if you startle them). The book is a wonderful mixture of recipes and essays on endangered food ways. Each chapter covers a different region relabeled (instead of the Southwest, the areas is referred to as the Chile Pepper Nation, for example)
