<p><small>This episode is truly in the spirit of "deconstructing" our food and features a talk delivered by <strong>Andrew Smith</strong> - a writer and lecturer on food and culinary history. His latest book is <em>Eating History - 30 Turning Points in the Making of American Cuisine</em>. The diet of the modern American wasn't always as corporate, conglomerated, and corn-rich as it is today. Smith demonstrates how, by revisiting this history, we can reclaim the independent, locally sustainable roots of American food.</small></p>
<p><small>Andrew was recorded speaking in November 2009 at the Kansas City Public Library in Kansas City, Missouri.</small></p>
