Penn State's Madhu Prakash on YES! Magazine's Web Site

I was just checking out YES! Magazine's web site and I came across an audio interview with Madhu Prakash called "The Story of Lentils and Chicken." She talks the "artistry of food" in India and says, [although] we were very poor in terms of a cash economy[,]... in terms of a cultural economy and a flavor economy we made out like bandits, ... or kings or presidents.”

I especially enjoyed hearing about the social community of exchanging recipes and giving gifts of food.

Check it out.
