Publisher's Summary

Today we're having a little midsummer night's fun! We'll take an insider's romp through the crazy restaurant business with John Delucie. He's the chef/partner of New York's famed The Waverly Inn and tells quite a tale in his memoir, Hunger: The Story of Food, Desire, and Ambition. Plus, it seems the culinary gods can be cruel. France, once the Mount Olympus of cookery, is getting a bad rap these days. We'll take a look at that state of affairs. We'll also hear about the foods of Puerto Rico and how its island flavors inspire a line of cookies, we'll visit another island in Louisiana, Avery Island. Later a Harvard anthropologist on how fire made us human. Plus, preserving summers bounty, barbecue, and much more. [Broadcast Date: July 16, 2009]
