This week on A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio is feeling festive, talking the history of the turkey with food historian Andrew Smith. Teaching food history at the New School in NYC, he is also the author of numerous books and hundreds of articles on food and history. Speaking on the the centerpiece of family Thanksgiving reunions, the turkey is a cultural symbol as well as a multi-billion dollar industry. As a bird, dinner, commodity, and national icon, the turkey has become as American as the bald eagle. Sitting down with Linda, Andrew discusses how this new world bird landed on the world's tables starting with the bird's origins and first recipes, before bringing up the topic of pickled turkey. After the break, Andrew explains how the turkey overcame the traditional goose holiday dinner, variations of stuffing throughout the years, and the preservation of heritage turkey breeds. Tune in for this timely episode! This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"Wild turkeys tend to taste very different depending on what they've consumed." [13:45]

"Serving turkey [on Thanksgiving] did not become universal until the late nineteenth century, though it was certainly on the menu." [26:20]

"In order to save the heritage turkeys you need to eat them." [30:00]

Do you really know what's in the olive oil you use everyday? How about the true contents of your morning coffee blend? This week on Eating Matters, host Kim Kessler is joined by Michael Roberts, Executive Director of the newly established Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy at the UCLA School of Law. Chatting with Kim about the growing menace of food fraud, the two discuss the definition of food fraud, examples of particular products that tend to be adulterated, and the dangers and concerns associated with this global problem. Given the increasingly global and complex nature of food supply chains, Kim and Michael question why food fraud is acknowledged yet not truly addressed. Tune in for an informative show! This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"Olive oil is often labeled as pure, extra virgin olive oil, and that is not that case for a lot of olive oil, unfortunately. One of the problems is that the labeling rules for olive oil are not very clear, they're very obscure." [17:35]

"We are trusting the production of these products in the hands of people who cheat." [21:15]
