Writer and eater Calvin Trillin keeps a register of his frustration and deprivation of local dishes, he can't get at home — fried peppers in western Spain, Cajun Boudin and New York's lost pumpernickel bagels. Calvin Trillin joins host Neal Conan to talk about the rare treats he's found on select dinner tables around the world.
