Pretzel history is this week’s topic on A Taste of the Past. Linda interviews Hans Röckenwagner, owner and founder of Restaurant Röckenwagner, James Beard Award winner, pretzel expert and more, about pretzels: where they came from, where they’re made, how they came about, and much more. This program has been sponsored by Whole Foods Market. Today’s music provided by The California Honeydrops.

 

“What I love about a pretzel is it has a distinct burstiness.” [12:00]
