Author Interview, Ten Restaurants That Changed the World

Host Fred Opie talks to author Paul Freedman about his new book Ten Restaurants That Changed the World. Paul Friedman is professor of history at Yale University where he teaches and writes about medieval social history, the history of Catalonia, comparative studies of the peasantry, trade in luxury products, and the history of cuisine. It was in the process of research and writing in his field that he came across too many food related sources to ignore publishing related articles and books. Freedman co-edited with Ken Albala and Joyce Chaplin, Food in Time and Place, edited Food: The History of Taste, an illustrated collection of essays about food from prehistoric to contemporary times, and he wrote, Out of the East: Spices and the Medieval Imagination
