How we think about food, how we prepare food and how we eat food is constantly changing. It’s mind blowing to think about how much food changes over the course of a decade, let alone several hundred years. What are your favorite dinner dishes? Have you ever wondered how they evolved into the recipes you know and love? This hour on Focus, Lisa Bralts talks with author William Sitwell about the history of food….and when we say history, we mean deep history. We’ll go back to the 1400’s when royals were eating feasts prepared from recipes calling for an entire pig, and we’ll learn more about when the fork became a fixture in Western culture. 

Why 100 recipes you ask? We’ll find during this episode of Focus.

Due to technical problems, WILL AM580 was off the air Thursday morning. Our interview with David Inge has been rescheduled for Tuesday, September 10.
