Guests from the community are regularly featured on the show with Adrian.

This week on "Food for Thought" Gretchen Gondek joins Siouxland Public Media's Sheila Brummer.  Gondek shares details on an event she’s hosting at the Betty Strong Encounter Center Sunday, January 12th at 2 p.m.  Gondek talks about the Victorian era in America and shares recipes and mourning rituals.  An odd combination, but an interesting one!   For more on the event click here.
