Fear of Frying: Culinary Nightmares

WBEZ contributor Nina Barrett takes us back in time with food stories from myth and history in the latest edition of her series, Fear of Frying.

We're calling it the Time Traveler's Edition.

In previous installments, the two-time James Beard Award-winning food reporter took us along on a journey to get beyond some classic kitchen anxieties: boiling the perfect egg, sharpening our own knives, deep-fat frying and catering our own parties.

She's taken Fear of Frying on the road, too: Barrett visited America’s only certified master Limburger cheese maker in Monroe, Wisc., and a group of feminist butchers at Grrls’ Meat Camp.
