Publisher's Summary

The saga of the Chili Queens of San Antonio; NASCAR kitchens tucked away in the crew pits at race tracks; the story of an unexpected kitchen; the George Foreman Grill; these stories and more from Hidden Kitchens, the popular and highly acclaimed radio series on NPR's morning edition, is now being released on digital audio based on the new book Hidden Kitchens: Stories, Recipes, and More from NPR's The Kitchen Sisters.

Produced by the Peabody Award winning radio team, The Kitchen Sisters, Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva, (creators of NPR's "Lost & Found Sound" and "The Sonic Memorial Project") with Jay Allison, Hidden Kitchens explores the world of street corner cooking, kitchen traditions and visionaries, and how communities come together through food. These stories of secret, underground, unofficial, and off the radar kitchens come alive in these sound rich stories full of an array of voices, music, and archival audio that capture a strong sense of place and time, stories that travel the country chronicling kitchen cultures past and present.

Hundreds of listeners called the NPR Hidden Kitchens Hotline with intriguing messages and hot tips about underground kitchens at nuclear test sites, secret civil rights kitchen, family recipes, and more. Many of these funny, passionate, and poignant messages are featured on this beautifully crafted, richly layered audio edition.

What the Critics Say

"The Kitchen Sisters are my favorite storytellers. Their off-beat kitchen stories make me want to walk through my neighbrohood, go on a road trip, and eat the food of family. They have heart." (Francis Ford Coppola)

    "LOVED this!"

    We don't receive this show in my area and now I'm extremely sad. This was fantastic! Little vignettes about people and lives that look ordinary, but are really examples of traditions and actions that make being an American so interesting.

    "Loved it"

    More than just about eating or cooking, this is a wonderful compilation of "hidden kitchens" across the country. Makes you open your eyes to what is around you that you may be missing or have ignored.
