This week on The Main Course, host Patrick Martins welcomes to the show Chef Mike Poiarkoff of Vinegar Hill House. Having been at the restaurant for six months now, Mike shares his experiences so far at the charming Brooklyn spot and what brought him specifically to that kitchen. Patrick and Mike shed light on the somewhat mysterious process of coming into a restaurant as a new chef and "trying out" for the position, with Mike securing his role at Vinegar Hill House by simply cooking his own style of simple, rustic food. Mike goes on to explain his way of cooking with the wood-burning oven at the restaurant and how he, for instance, achieves the perfect crust on a chop. Growing up in a close-knit Russian community in Pittsburgh, Mike was introduced to traditional cooking techniques at a young age and, from the sounds of it, this has given him a unique perspective in the kitchen. This program was brought to you by Rolling Press.

"I didn't attend culinary school, I never worked in a professional kitchen. I had the opportunity to learn from somebody very talented, from scratch... I was pushed early, and that was probably the best way that I could have learned." [11:39]

Join Greg and Darin for their 200th episode on this week's Snacky Tunes! To mark the momentous occasion, the guys pop some champagne and take it back to the beginning. Welcoming Mom and Dad Bresnitz to the show to reminisce and shed light on how the twins came to be where they are today, they talk about their early food memories, and, of course, how Mom and Dad met. Seemingly bursting with foodies and great stories on each side of the family, it's a no brainer how Greg and Darin came to have their finger on the pulse! The second half of the show features the band Roses who joins in with great live performances. Tune in for the celebration with the Snacky Tunes family! This program was brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

"I had my first culinary experience from a chow-chow cart, an eggroll, prior to the food trucks that come around." [18:50]

"I guess I was cooking a little leaner food and one day Greg came home from high school and said, 'look mom, I'm hungry... and I don't mean vegetable hungry, I mean meat hungry!'"[22:14]

"Inviting people to your house, setting the table, and giving them food from the heart is a real special occasion." [45:26]

-- Gloria Bresnitz on Snacky Tunes

Kara Newman explains The Secret Financial Life of Food on this week's episode of A Taste of the Past. Linda Pelaccio invites Kara into the studio to talk about her book and the history of food commodities. What foods are traded on the commodity market, and how did commodity markets develop? Hear about the role of "the Butter & Egg Man" in food history and society, and learn about urban development in relation to food trading. How do commodity prices affect prices in the supermarket? How did items like pork belly and onions almost take down the Chicago Mercantile Exchange? Find out on this week's installment of A Taste of the Past! This program has been brought to you by Fairway Market.

"In terms of what makes for a commodity from a food perspective- either it's important for our survival, or something that we hold close to us emotionally." [11:30]

"The butter and egg man was the modern Wall Street hotshot." [14:25]
