This hour we’re talking with two guests: David Shields, author of Southern Provisions: The Creation and Revival of a Cuisine (University of Chicago Press, March 2015), and Jennifer Jordan, author of Edible Memory: The Lure of Heirloom Tomatoes and Other Forgotten Foods (University of Chicago Press, April 2015). Shields is on a mission to bring back Lowcountry cuisine—both by growing ingredients that are no longer widely available and by reviving long-lost recipes. Meanwhile, Jordan is exploring how memory and food are intertwined through a sociologist’s lens.
