The "Kitchen Sisters" do a radio show. They also have a book out... 
The show is aired on many NPR (that's National Public Radio) stations 
around the US. The segments cover many different states and 
subcultural groups. I kept waiting for an SCA camp kitchen story, but 
never heard one. Plus many if not most of their stories, as 
fascinating as they are, cover kitchens one cannot visit easily.

"Check Please!" is a TV show, and each of the three versions is 
specific to the local city and local PBS (Public Broadcasting System) 
TV station on which it is shown. Each show (Chicago, San Francisco 
Bay Area, South Florida) only covers its own region. This is useful 
to visitors in those areas.

Someone sometimes known as Urtatim
I'm not sayin' she's ugly,
but when she leans over the freezer
the fish fingers go for her throat.
