This year, KCUR is embarking on a project called “Beyond Our Borders,” an attempt to take a closer look at the cultural and geographical borders in Kansas City. The first border we are examining is Troost Avenue, which acts as a racial and socioeconomic diving line in Kansas City’s urban core. Part of this ongoing conversation about Troost included the Historic Northeast in Kansas City, a part of town that is well known for its racial, cultural and socioeconomic diversity. On Thursday’s Central Standard, guests Charles Ferruzza​ and Bobbi Baker-Hughes sat down with Gina Kaufmann to highlight the cuisine that comes part and parcel with that diversity.
