It's a special edition of Communal Table recorded live onstage at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY for the debut of Sean Brock's new book South: Essential Recipes and New Explorations. Brock went deep on his grandmother's sour corn and leather britches, learning to value the food he grew up with, and trying to get his infant son to be less picky.
