“...would you like some of King Tut’s wheat?” and I said “sure!”


On our show this week, we’re exploring ancient varieties of wheat--in particular, Kamut.


Eric Schedler of Muddy Fork Bakery shares why he likes to use it in pizza dough, and we’ll hear more about the grain itself from the authors of a book called Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, and Healthy Food

Producer Alex Chambers talks with Bob Quinn and Liz Carlisle about how Kamut found it's way into contemporary production, and the significance of its revival.
