Tucson: City of Gastronomy

In 2015 Tucson joined a pretty prestigious list of more than a dozen cities from around the world to become the only place in the U.S. designated a “City of Gastronomy” by UNESCO.

Coming up on this week’s show: Tucson. Yeah, I know it sounds unlikely, but this desert city has some pretty interesting history, and is at the forefront of resuscitating a long-lost agricultural movement that goes back thousands of years. It’s also home to Sonoran-style cooking, which means beef.

Steve heads to the southwest to sample the old, the new and a lot of the tried-and-true dishes that have made this town a favorite among both college kids and retirees.
