This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda welcomes Cindy Lobel to the program. Cindy is an assistant professor of history at Lehman College, a cultural historian with interests in urban development and consumer culture as well as the history of New York. Today she and Linda discuss her book, Urban Appetites: Food and Culture in Nineteenth-Century New York. Was New York City the first in the country to have a restaurant? What was the first restaurant to open in New York City? Surprisingly, it seems as though present day New York food scene is not so different than it was in the 1800s. Tune in as Cindy takes us through the beginnings of restaurants in New York City and how the now flourishing industry evolved through the years. This program has been sponsored by Cain Vineyard and Winery.

"People think that New York was born with the Zagat Guide, and that of course is not the case... free standing restaurants have a history in New York." [5:40]

"The rise of restaurants is really tied to the growth of the city." [8:10]

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.

"There wasn't a single train called the Trans-Siberian Express, a whole lot of people think there was this one great big legendary train, but it was the route was legendary." [14:00]

"The real point of the the Trans-Siberian Railway is that it was the only way to get across Russia... all the way across the country." [16:55]
