This episode is hosted by Trevor and Ken. Today we have food writers Kathleen Purvis and Adrian E Miller in the studio to discuss how simple recipe differences in cornbread, mac n cheese and chitlins can make all of us fight to the ends of the earth, protecting our grannys kitchen classics.
Kathleen Purvis has been a food editor, columnist and reporter, running a weekly section and online food coverage. She’s also written in, and been written about, in magazines from Garden & Gun to Southern Living. In 2008, Kathleen was featured in Saveur magazine’s annual 100 issue for her work as a regional food editor. Her writing has been included in editions of “Best Food Writing”, “Cornbread Nation” and in Garden & Gun’s new book “The Southerner’s Cookbook.”
