Turnspit Dogs

Hosted by

The turnspit was a breed of dog that was once an essential part of every large kitchen in Britain. The small cooking canine was bred to run in a wheel that turned a roasting spit in cavernous kitchen fireplaces. The Kitchen Sisters bring to life the story of the now-extinct turnspit dog in the UK and New York.
