This week on A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio is taking a trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway with author Sharon Hudgins. Sharon has traveled along this particular railway numerous times and worked for University of Maryland University College for 20 years, primarily as a professor in the university's programs in Germany, Spain, Greece, Japan, Korea, and Russia. She also served as UMUC's program administrator at two universities in Siberia and the Russian Far East, and today chats with Linda about the evolution of the Trans-Siberian Railway dining car from the initial journeys to the practice today. After the break, Sharon shares facts about the food vendors that passengers would see across the long journey via station stops and also how the train line has endured through historic events like both World Wars, the Cold War, as well as the current political environment in Russia. Ever wondered the background behind the term 'mystery meat?' Tune in to find out and hear all about this legendary train trek. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

This week on A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio is delving into the pages of culinary history, wondering how the working-class ate at the turn of the century. Dr. Katherine Leonard Turner joins Linda via phone, adding to the discussion interesting facts and thoughts brought up in her book "How the Other Half Ate: A History of the Working-Class Meals at the Turn oft he Century." She explains that at this time, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, working-class Americans had eating habits that were distinctly shaped by jobs, families, neighborhoods, and the tools, utilities, as well as size of their kitchens—along with their cultural heritage. Tune in for a thorough look at food and meals for the common man. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"Certainly working class people's cooking facilities were much much behind at this time. When the middle class had gas stoves the working class had wood and coal burning stoves... It's a lot of upkeep and maintenance just to run coal stoves, and their kitchens aren't separate from their homes." [10:00]

"Urban working people are eating on the street, bar, push cart, cafeterias that sound more like where Americans eat today." [20:00]

God’s Love We Deliver started in 1985, when Ganga Stone biked over a couple bags of groceries to a friend living with HIV/AIDS. When she realized that he needed more than raw ingredients, she founded God’s Love -- an organization that tailors nutritious, health-promoting meals for people living with serious illnesses. On today’s Eating Matters episode—the second installment of the “Prescribing Food” series—the organization’s Director of Policy and Planning Alissa Wassung joins assistant producer Talia Ralph, along with Sarah, a client of God’s Love. The conversation spans how their client base has grown and changed to what progressive policies are happening in New York state to make these kinds of services easier to access. “Food is love,” is one of GLWD’s central tenets, but it is also a powerful tool to make people’s lives easier and healthier as they face cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other serious illnesses. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"Back in 2001 we actually expanded our mission to serve people living with all severe illnesses: cancer, MS, Alzheimer's, etc. The reason we did that is that we had learned so much about treating illness with nutrition with our work with the HIV/AIDS community that we had clients calling us up saying 'my friend has cancer, can you help them?' and of course we couldn't say anything but 'yes.'" [4:09]

"We believe that being sick and hungry is a crisis that demands urgent response... We never charge clients for their meals and we will never have a waiting list. " [5:26]
