Let ‘Em Eat Cake!

An “Aural Tapestry.” Food journalist Lizet Kruyff cooks Marie Antoinette’s favorite cake from her childhood – an Austrian kugelhopf, while reporter Mindy Ran follows her around the kitchen asking questions about both cooking and history. The wealthy French were using food for conspicuous display and class distinctions, while much of of the French populace was starving. Revolution ensued.

Today’s program was produced by Mindy Ran and was originally aired in Radio Netherlands now-defunct Euroquest series. Its technical production and support was performed by Mark Brauer and was adapted and updated for WINGS by Frieda Werden.
