Long before Europeans set foot on the American continents, indigenous peoples had lived on these lands for thousands of years. In that time, the Native American peoples developed a rich, diverse collection of cultural traditions which, of course, included food. But what happened to those traditions when contact was made with Europeans?

Would Native Americans be able to preserve their culinary practices? and how would the ‘Magic 8’ crops contribute to global cuisine?In today’s episode, John is joined by Native foods historian and author, Lois Ellen Frank and Chef Walter Whitewater as they take us through the fascinating evolution of Native American cuisine with a keen focus on fresh produce.
