EE103: Documenting Food Stories - The Kitchen Sisters, Nikki Silva and Davia Nelson, Radio Documentarians
Registration for this lecture opens Sep. 19, 2012 at 10am.
The Kitchen Sisters (DAVIA NELSON & NIKKI SILVA) are producers of the duPont-Columbia Award-winning NPR series, Hidden Kitchens, and the two Peabody Award-winning NPR series, Lost & Found Sound and The Sonic Memorial Project. Hidden Kitchens, heard on Morning Edition, explores the world of secret, unexpected, below-the-radar cooking across America—how communities come together through food. The series inspired their first book, Hidden Kitchens: Stories, Recipes, and More from NPR’s The Kitchen Sisters, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year for 2005 and nominee for the James Beard Award for Best Writing on Food. As independent producers, they are the creators of more than 200 stories for public broadcast about the lives, histories, art, and rituals of people who have shaped our diverse cultural heritage. The Kitchen Sisters educate and train new voices for public media in an imaginative, artistic, and creative approach to storytelling. They have taught and lectured at universities, festivals, workshops, and other public forums throughout the country and abroad.
