A conversation with Michael Kideckel.

Today we’re talking about capital W capital T white trash. Deemed the “most intriguing book of the 1986 spring cookbook season”, and the ”most beautiful sociological document” by Harper Lee, White Trash Cooking is a collection of Southern recipes and photographs by the late Ernest Matthew Mickler. Michael and I discuss meanings of the words ""authenticity"" and ""folk"", why cookbooks are valuable sociological documents, and how to cook a possum.
