Whether you’re a few hundred miles from home or several time zones away, there are always smells and tastes that can take you straight back to your family’s table. When Matt and Ted Lee moved up to New York, they found themselves in a familiar predicament that many regional ex-pats do: feeling homesick for familiar foods. Since nobody was selling authentic foods, the brothers took it upon themselves to represent the cuisine to their new home. Matt shares their experiences, and how they went from a catalog of boiled peanuts to representing Southern cuisine around the nation through writing and recipes. He also talks about their latest adventure – republishing beloved older cookbooks and introduce a new audience to some great old classics.
