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 

 

https://www.pbs.org/video/flour-power-t4azyp/

 

this show , not 

 

https://www.pbs.org/show/flour-power/

 

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.
