Native chef wins Emmy

Loretta Barrett Oden's spirited journey on PBSThis is a remarkable year for Loretta Barrett Oden, an Oklahoman of American Indian descent who is a chef and a food historian. She is ecstatic, even giddy, that she has earned a Boston/New England Chapter Emmy for "Seasoned With Spirit: A Native Cook's Journey,” the five-part PBS series she wrote and hosted.

The series, co-produced by Connecticut Public Television and Native American Public Telecommunications in association with Resolution Pictures, will air locally beginning Monday.
