Celebrating Thanksgiving: Food, Fads, and Cookbooks

Nov 22, 2017

A Thanksgiving week special.  Host and raconteur Paul Holdengraber gathers guests in a roundtable discussion about how and where they celebrate the holiday, what they cook, with whom they dine, how the literature they love captures the essence of food, family and other things for which they are grateful.

We’ll hear from Kentucky poet/farmer/philosopher Wendell Berry, food historian Betty Fussell, PBS chef Sara Moulton, Adam Gopnik and others.

The roundtable explores: heritage turkeys, why pumpkin pies, why we eat too much, celebrating Thanksgiving in Paris, 40 years of food phases and fads in American, and favorite cookbooks.
