Micropolis: Dinner With ... Monroe Yoder
Wednesday, August 01, 2012
There are 24,000 restaurants in New York City, but more than 3 million households turning out an extraordinary range of meals on any given night.
As part of his Micropolis series, WNYC’s Arun Venugopal has been visiting the homes of New Yorkers, and having dinner with them – for purely journalistic reasons, of course.
After hearing about his last dinner, in Chinatown, a Mennonite family invited him to join them for a meal — so he headed to the Bronx for a meal that included baked chicken, fried potatoes and snow peas straight out of the Mennonite cookbook.
Find out what Arun learned about Mennonites and get a recipe from the dinner go to the Micropolis: NYC Tumblr site.
