Joe Yonan, food and dining editor of the Washington Post and two-time James Beard Award-winner, asked passionate chefs, artisan producers, and fascinating food personalities across the country what they cook for the people they love. The result was a collection of recipes of signature dishes and family favorites in a cookbook that celebrates the diversity and rich culinary traditions of America—and that supports the No Kid Hungry campaign.

Join Yonan as he discusses cooking in America and what it means today with four local contributors to the book: Jerome Grant, executive chef at the African American History and Culture Museum’s Sweet Home Café; sisters Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne, cofounders of Georgetown Cupcake; and Joan Nathan, award-winning cookbook author and New York Times contributor.

America: The Great Cookbook (Weldon Owen) is available for purchase following the program, as well as samples from the panelists’ favorite recipes.
