Special | 25m 46s

Food historian Bruce Kraig discusses his book, Man Bites Dog: Hot Dog Culture in America, and gives an entertaining and educational account of the American love affair with the humble tube steak. From the hot dog's introduction to the American palate by German immigrants in the 19th century to today's almost limitless regional variations, it's a flavorful half-hour of fun.
