PSIP Description: 
The origins of traditional African foods and the roles they play in western cooking and culture.
Long Description: 
Over 10 million slaves were brought from Africa to the Americas and they brought with them many of their traditional foods and the knowledge of how to grow and cook them-peanuts, bananas, watermelon, rice, yams and okra are just part of our African culinary heritage. This program takes a look at the origins of these foods and the roles they played and continue to play in western cooking and culture.
