Ah, yes, I am talking about Rice-a-Roni.  Everyone knows that it is the San Francisco treat, but I doubt that many know the history of Rice-a-Roni and it’s roots in San Francisco’s Mission District.  The San Francisco-based producers of NPR’s Hidden Kitchens series, known as the Kitchen Sisters, are working on a radio piece that will air on July 31st on NPR’s Morning Edition.  In their own words: "In this story, the worlds of a young Canadian immigrant, an Italian pasta-making family, and an old Armenian woman converge to create the ‘San Francisco Treat.’"

Be sure to listen to NPR’s Morning Edition on July 31st.
