The saga of the Chili Queens of San Antonio; NASCAR kitchens tucked away in the crew pits at race tracks; the story of an unexpected kitchen; the George Foreman Grill; these stories and more from Hidden Kitchens, the popular and highly acclaimed radio series on NPR's morning edition, is now being released on digital audio based on the new book Hidden Kitchens: Stories, Recipes, and More from NPR's The Kitchen Sisters.

Produced by the Peabody Award winning radio team, The Kitchen Sisters, Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva, (creators of NPR's Lost & Found Sound and The Sonic Memorial Project) with Jay Allison, Hidden Kitchens explores the world of street corner cooking, kitchen traditions and visionaries, and how communities come together through food. These stories of secret, underground, unofficial, and off the radar kitchens come alive in these sound rich stories full of an array of voices, music, and archival audio that capture a strong sense of place and time, stories that travel the country chronicling kitchen cultures past and present.

Hundreds of listeners called the NPR Hidden Kitchens Hotline with intriguing messages and hot tips about underground kitchens at nuclear test sites, secret civil rights kitchen, family recipes, and more. Many of these funny, passionate, and poignant messages are featured on this beautifully crafted, richly layered audio edition. Download and start listening now!

    " transcripts and additional materials on the Kitchen Sisters popular radio series on "Hidden Kitchens." Of particular interest (esp. for my thesis) is Georgia Gilmore's "Club From Nowhere," which helped to fund the Montgomery Bus Boycott and Civil Right Movement. "

    " This is a series of fascinating stories of about how people relate to food. The scope is quite varied and always engaging. How can you not like a book with a line like, "I've been to sorrow's kitchen and licked out all the pots." "
