Hope you’re hungry because today we’re opening a can of historical worms as we discover the origins of canned food.
How did canned food go from something only explorers would consider eating to the centrepiece of kitchen cupboards? We go from a competition run by Napoleon to Andy Warhol’s painting of Campbell’s Tomato Soup.
Our guest today is Anna Zeide, author of Canned: The Rise and Fall of Consumer Confidence in the American Food Industry.
