And so it begins…

Posted on Feb 8, 2016

Welcome to Political Food, a podcast and recipe book of how human conflict has shaped cuisine. Adding dissident to dessert, campaigns to confectionery, separatism to spaghetti, patriotism to pastries, revolution to ravioli… you get the point. This is the history of war, power, technology and immigration as told through food. Every episode is both a recipe and a story.
