This week on We Dig Plants, hosts Alice Marcus Krieg and Carmen Devito are joined by Sarah Lohman, author of the forthcoming Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine. The book introduces the explorers, merchants, botanists, farmers, writers, and chefs whose choices came to define the American palate, and uses long-forgotten recipes to explain how eight flavors changed the way we eat.
