History And Recipes From A New Native Kitchen

Renee Bright

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and we’re marking the occasion with a conversation about indigenous foodways.

Our guests are chef Freddie Bitsoie and writer James O. Fraioli. They’re the authors of a new cookbook that celebrates the unique cuisines of the many Native American tribes around the country. Of course, there are plenty of recipes — for chocolate bison chili and prickly pear sweet pork chops — so you can mix up your Thanksgiving offerings. And we’ll learn some culinary history along the way, too. Join us this Friday at noon and Saturday at 11 a.m. for a conversation about cuisines as varied as the tribes that developed them.

Freddie Bitsoie and James O. Fraioli’s book is New Native Kitchen: Celebrating Modern Recipes of the American Indian. [Indie BoundBookShopAmazon]
