Food Maintains Traditions In Immigrant Families
05/30/11 7:00PM By Jane Lindholm
Food can sometimes ease the transition of immigrants to a new country. And cooking traditional meals can connect generations of families to their heritage. Chef, teacher and author Lynne Christy Anderson joins us on Vermont Edition to offer the memories and recipes she's collected in her new book, "Breaking Bread: Recipes and Stories from Immigrant Kitchens." Plus we hear from some new Vermonters about their culinary heritage.
Also in the program, the deep connections of Dr. Seuss to our region. The beloved children's writer went to Dartmouth under his given name, Theodor Geisel. Dartmouth English Professor Donald Pease's biography about the school's famous alum is, "Theodor SEUSS Geisel" and it's part of Oxford University Press's Lives and Legacies series. He spoke with VPR's Jane Lindholm about the book.
And as Vermont Edition prepares for our new season of Summer School, we listen back to a lesson from last in How To Run A 5K.
