Winchester, Va. -- less than two hours from D.C.-- is the home of country music superstar Patsy Cline. It's also the setting of "Homeplace: A Southern Town, a Country Legend, and the Last Days of a Mountaintop Honky-Tonk."
Guest Host: Jen Golbeck
Culinary historian Michael Twitty has been tracing the roots of southern cooking in African and African-American traditions for decades, including the origins of barbecue. His latest project follows his family’s genealogy back to the 17th century through food. We speak with him about what the past can teach us about today’s familiar dishes and why things aren’t always as they seem.
