Examing Soul Food and North Carolina Foodways

The following is a prerecorded radio interview I did on Charlotte, North Carolina National Public Radio:

We have food and music of the soul today on Charlotte Talks. First up, our monthly food show with Chef Peter Reinhart. Soul food has become as much a part of the African Diaspora and African American life as it is a set of recipes or cooking style. We'll examine soul food in all of its manifestations.
