Kitchen Sisters Productions (San Francisco, CA 94133-5107)
Nikki Silva (Project Director: January 2010 to present)

Hidden Kitchens World

Development of 12 seven-minute radio segments, two hour-long radio specials, twelve podcasts and an interactive website that explore life and culture through food across the globe.

The Kitchen Sisters are seeking support to develop Hidden Kitchens World, a new multimedia series that explores life and culture through food across the globe. Inspired by the original NEH-funded NPR Hidden Kitchens series, this new on-air and online collaboration will feature stories exploring what people eat and grow, how food marks our sameness and differences, and how food culture adapts in the face of globalization, socioeconomic conditions and environmental changes. Each story will include perspectives and conversations with scholars, as well as video, music, photographs, curriculum and links to a curated library of social networks and resources relating to the themes raised within the stories. Funding from the NEH will help develop a multi-faced project featuring 12 stories on NPR and the BBC, 2 hour-long radio specials distributed nationwide, 12 podcasts, and a collaborative, humanities-rich website with audio, video, recipes, images and writings from around the world.
