Episode 59: Native American Foods and Festivals

April 25, 1998

We're talking pow wows, green onion dinners, naming ceremonies, and legends this week with E. Barrie Kavasch, a descendant of Pocahontas, food historian, and author of Enduring Harvests: Native American Foods and Festivals for Every Season. Barrie suggests some travel guides to Native American festivals and you'll want to try her recipes for glacial mists cooler and Fiesta del Sol cookies. We'll visit a Chicago restaurant where the chef includes traditional American Indian food on the menu, and Jane and Michael Stern report on the quintessential spice shop in Fort Worth. Our fruit expert, David Karp, "tells all" about one of Lynne's favorites—loquats; Courtney in Ohio tries to Stump the Cook and, as always, the lines will be open for your calls.
