"Each time a good cook dies without passing down recipes, family dishes become suddenly lost forever." - Unknown. This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda Pelaccio talks with food writer Donna Pierce about preserving the past through cuisine and recipes. Donna Pierce started Skillet Diares, a website dedicated to "remembering, preserving, and passing down the flavors of home." Tune in to hear Linda and Donna discuss the importance of digital media in preserving recipes, the necessity for oral traditions, and the variations in recipes from region to region. Also, check out Donna's other site, Black American Cooks, which is all about preserving an African American cultural history through generations of recipes. This episode has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"When I grew up, I clung to everything about my grandmother and parents' past, and the creole food that they loved."

"I really understand the importance of [cookbook style and design]. Sometimes it's more important than the written description- and that's a hard thing for a writer to say."

This week on A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio welcomes Farha Ternikar, professor of sociology at Le Moyne College to talk about the history of every New Yorker's favorite meal: brunch. Author of the book "Brunch: A History," Farha explains that when Americans think of brunch, they typically think of Sunday mornings swelling into early afternoons; mimosas and bloody Marys; eggs Benedict and coffee cake; bacon and bagels; family and friends. Her book presents a modern history of brunch not only as a meal, but also as a cultural experience. Relying on diverse sources, from historic cookbooks to Twitter and television, "Brunch: A History" is a global and social history of the meal including brunch in the United States, Western Europe, South Asia and the Middle-East. Brunch takes us on a tour of a modern meal around the world. While brunch has become a modern meal of leisure, its history is far from restful; this meal’s past is both lively and fraught with tension. Here, Farha tells Linda of the gendered and class-based conflicts around this meal, and provides readers with an enlightening glimpse into the dining rooms, verandas, and kitchens where brunches were prepared, served, and enjoyed. This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.

"Brunch is a pretty modern meal as we think of it - it wasn't really invented until the 1890s." [3:40]

"I think in the 20s and 30s it was still a meal of the elite." [8:35]

"A cold chain is a supply chain that transports and stores temperature sensitive perishable goods. The most visible manifestation of the cold chain is the electric household refrigerator." - Jonathan Rees

The world was changed by the innovation of refrigeration. This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda Pelaccio is joined by Dr. Jonathan Rees. Dr. Rees is a professor of history at Colorado State University - Pueblo, and the author of Refrigeration Nation. Tune in to hear about the origins of the ice industry and ice boxes, and learn about 'the cold chain'. Find out how compression refrigeration developed during the Civil War era, and why the marketing of refrigerators in the 1940s relied on size. Learn why cold storage was a controversial political issue, and how refrigeration was essential to the development of the supermarket. How were frozen foods received upon their arrival? Find out on this week's edition of A Taste of the Past! This program has been sponsored by Regional Access. Music by Jack Inslee.

"Ice was something that all classes were interested in, whether or not all classes could afford it." [5:50]

"Producing food and having it spoil is just as harmful to the environment as refrigeration." [17:10]
