    I watched the first run last week and was disappointed by the lack of detail. They would show something really good and then skip right onto the next subject with no explanation of what we previously had seen.

      Must be local to Chicago. It does not show up in any Minneapolis/St. Paul TV listings for the next 14 days at least.

        It was produced by WTTW which is the Chicago PBS station. It ran during pledge drive.

          I believe that the lack of detail had to do with the volume of foods covered. I found the show very interesting and there was some informative details such as the origins of Italian beef. It was also interesting watching the woman in Pilsen make her famous enchiladas.

            That's because the MSP station is showing "The History of Lutefisk" instead...

              "during pledge drive"...So does this mean we can get through the whole program without the begging?

                There was no time to detail the restaurants for this special. The five minute segment of Hot Dog University on the CBS Sunday Morning News required sixteen hours of taping during two days.

                  KET in Louisville has aired a recent special on historical locations in this area (also during fund-raising campaign). The problem with the fund-drive is that they use 5-10 minutes at a time to sell PBS...a necessary activity, but they do it 'interupting the program' like regular commercials...not just at the hour and half-hour time breaks.

                    That's why God invented DVRs. You tape a show and then when the pledge drive starts you fast forward. I watch almost no shows live anymore.
