Seg. 1: Peruvian Food. Seg. 2: South American Food. Seg. 3: Local Food News.

Segment 1: Peruvian food in Kansas City.

A chef at a Lenexa restaurant shares how she makes lomo saltado, a classic Peruvian dish. Then, a home cook from Lima tells us about Peruvian food.

Segment 2, beginning at 15:00: The Food Critics recommend South American dishes.

From arepas to pupusas to ceviche — and don't forget the meat-fest that is the Brazilian steakhouse — KCUR's Food Critics search out the best South American food in and around town.

Segment 3, beginning at 28:27: The latest in local food news.

The Food Critics do their seasonal round-up of the biggest restaurant news. Hear what's been going on with openings, closings, menu changes and more.

People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
