Images of food are everywhere. Supermarkets, billboards, restaurants, magazines and newspapers offer a barrage of food porn, recipes and restaurant reviews. But what do we really know of food?

In their series, "Hidden Kitchens", The Kitchen Sisters, Nikki Silva and Davia Nelson, bring listeners into a less familiar world of food -- below the radar cooking, legendary meals and eating traditions.

The birth of the Frito chip, the cultural significance of the George Foreman Grill, Chili Queens in Texas, convicts cooking sausage in Louisiana's Angola prison.

In their series for NPR, The Kitchen Sisters transmute a world of tastes and smell and cooking, into sound.

The Kitchen Sisters will be talking about their series and playing audio Saturday, November 6, at the Vegas Valley Book Festival.
