Salt Lake City, Utah – Compare your grocery store with one across the country and you'll find the shelves bulging with much of the same food. But of course, that wasn't always the case. Journalist Mark Kurlansky says that each part of the country reflected a distinctive culture and that much of what happened in the home was rooted in food traditions. Kurlansky found stories of our food past in a forgotten 1940s WPA project and Thursday, he joins us to talk about "The Food of a Younger Land."
