Food Talk with Mike Colameco is brought to you by the following generous underwriters:



This week on Food Talk, Mike has a full house. His first guest, Ellen Gustafson is a food activist and author of the new book, We the Eaters. Mike talks to Ellen about the politics behind why it is difficult to find and eat nutritious food. The two go back and forth regarding possible solutions to the problem, starting with a single item on your dinner plate. Next up, Mike brings in Patrick Martins, Founder and Chairman of Heritage Radio Network as well as the host of The Main Course, to talk about his new book The Carnivore's Manifesto: Eating Well, Eating Responsibly, and Eating Meat. In the book, Patrick highlights fifty ways to be an enlightened carnivore, while taking better care of our planet and ourselves. For the remainder of the program, Mike welcomes Anna Polonsky, US Director of Le Fooding, to share details on the Le Fooding events happening in NYC this summer, including their Beach Club party going down at Rockaway Beach July 11, 12, and 13. Tune in for a packed program!

"We have this dual problem both related to how we nourish ourselves... American eaters have incredible power in the food system. We have dictated what the world eats. Our diet has spread around the world." [7:34]

--Ellen Gustafson on Food Talk

"Should we be eating less meat? Yes, probably. We should be eating less commodity meats." [40:03]

--Patrick Martins on Food Talk

"Le Fooding, in the meantime, never wanted to put stars or grades, because our interests are more about telling stories." [56:41]

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]
