From Betty Crocker to Feminist Food Studies: Critical Perspectives on Women and Food Episode 162: “‘The Human Cost of Art’” This one is heavy. The title for this episode comes from the last line of “Woman under Siege: Leningrad 1941-1942,” by Darra Goldstein in the book From Betty Crocker to Feminist Food Studies: Critical Perspectives [...]
Will lets out a secret, tries to rally listeners for Austin Bakes for West, and talks with Elizabeth Gunz of El Lago Foods. El Lago is in many ways the foundation upon which Central Texas Tex-Mex is built so listen up. (Full disclosure: they paid me in tortillas after the interview.)
It’s more of a snack than a full episode. Have a listen to the folks behind Matt’s El Rancho tell a few quick stories about this storied institution. That interview was conducted by Letisha Brown and Scott Pryor for the Foodways Texas oral history archives.
On his 13th wedding anniversary, Will reflects on the fact that he didn’t have to pawn anything to take the lovely Anastasia out to eat this year. He celebrates the AFBA cookbook launch. And he talks with food writer and BBQ lover Kenny Pailes about the 2013 Foodways Texas Symposium, “Our Barbecue, Ourselves.”
Will continues his quest to explore the ingredients that make up the regional cuisine that is Tex-Mex with an episode devoted to the flour tortilla. He shares some history of the flour tortilla from Jeffrey M. Pilcher’s Planet Taco: A Global History of Mexican Food and he talks with Paqui Tortilla founder Doug Lyon about what goes into artisan flour tortillas.
Will goes down a rabbit hole filled with queso. A question was put to the South By Southwest Interactive 2013 Panel, “Eating to Live Online” about whether it was wrong to love TexMex. Will tries to uncover some of the rhetorical complexities raised by the question.
