The Ethnic Restaurateur

Hosted by

Carbonara, cannelloni and risotto are just a few examples of dishes brought to the US by Italian immigrants. In his new book The Ethnic Restaurateur," Krishnendu Ray explores how immigrants have created and changed the American palate. He is chair of NYU's Department of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health. Be sure to tune in all the way to the end of the interview to hear Krishnendu's reference to Hegel: "The owl of Minerva takes flight at dusk."
