Air Date:
Heard On Special Programming

Hidden Kitchen host Frances McDormand leads us through this rich international collection of stories of land, community and food. From the organic olive groves and vineyards being grown on confiscated Mafia land in Sicily to secret night clubs embedded in Soviet dissident kitchens. From tales of cooking dogs in Medieval England to the little-known tale of Agricultural Explorers “The Indiana Jones of the Plant World” who introduced exotic dates from the Middle East to the Coachella Valley. And in France and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello we go underground into the world of wine, war and counterfeiting.
