Food Travels, Tortilla Art; Australian Bushfood

Hosted by

Mark Schatzker takes a gastronomic trip around the world, traveling only by land and sea.  This week, he travels by car from New York to Los Angeles, eating local food made by local hands.  From kangaroo to witchetty grubs, Vic Cherikoff and Benjamin Christie take us Down Under to learn about Australian "bushfood." Pig farmer Jennifer Small lauds the benefits of pig lard; Joe Bravo turns everyday tortillas into works of art; Davia Nelson, co-producer of NPR's Hidden Kitchens, reveals out-of-sight places, events and traditions that celebrate food; Cary Fowler protects our country's agricultural resources by managing the seed vault; Kim Stewart exposes what food labels really mean; and Laura Avery has the Market Report.
