Flour Power : a PBS show from 2018


Recommended Posts

I follow PBS cooking shows 


in my area on Saturdays :


the usual suspects : Simply Ming , Lidia's Kitchen , Sara Moulton 


sometimes a ' new ' show enters a time slot where something else just finished up 


thus   Flour Power 




this show , not 




which is being broadcast in my area now


if you go to the first ref , you can watch the Prevew


which is 30 minutes .   Minnesota and river power :  white bread


very ver interesting.

Thank you so much for sharing this!!  I am enjoying it so much that I had to stop mid-video to say that  😏  We have visited the Mill City Museum that is in the ruins of the Pillsbury A mill and that was fascinating. This show really rounds out the telling of the story. 


Should any of you fans of flour ever find yourselves in the Twin Cities, I highly recommend a visit. It is a part of the Minnesota Historical Society and well curated. I will post a link to the Wikipedia entry if you are interested in more info.
