This week on We Dig Plants, hosts Carmen DeVito and Alice Marcus Krieg are talking Italy! The show opens with a wonderful story about Carmen's grandmothers, one of which raised Carmen for a short time in Italy and notably saved her from a pig attack! This truly sets the stage for the show to come. Carlo Scissura, the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce President, joins the program via phone to share details on the Italian Cultural and Community Center in the neighborhood of Bensonhurst as well as the upcoming Italian Restaurant Week. After the break, Carmen and Alice welcome Mary Menniti to the program to talk about The Italian Garden Project. Mary founded The Italian Garden Project as a way to celebrate the wisdom inherent in the traditional Italian American vegetable garden. She goes on to explain how this project preserves the heritage and demonstrates its relevance for reconnecting to our food, families, and Earth. This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.

"We will have people of all cultures wanting to know about Italian culture." [10:55]

--Carlo Scissura on We Dig Plants

"[The Italian Garden Project] was founded to shine a light on an amazing lifestyle that is very relevant for today." [19:38]

"It's really a passion of mine. The more I do it, the more I want to do it, and the more I see there is to do." [35:25]

--Mary Menniti on We Dig Plants

Ciao! This week on a brand new episode of A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio is chatting with one of America’s foremost authorities on Italian food, Julia della Croce. She is the author of over 13 cooking and travel books, notably "Italian Home Cooking: 125 Recipes to Comfort Your Soul" and "The Classic Italian Cookbook." In the past decades, traditional Italian home cooking has seemingly gone to the wayside with dining in restaurants in Italy today being much different than traditional home cooking. True Italian food differs from region to region, says Julia, who emphasizes that this is imperative to the cuisine as a whole and that the food is truly tied to the land. After the break, Julia gives her thoughts on the 'authenticity' of Italian recipes as well as the cooking classes she leads. Tune in for a wonderful episode! This program has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"Italian cooking really is home cooking. The traditions I'm talking about began in the home, not in the restaurants. The restaurants just carried out the recipes found at home... The restaurant is a relatively new concept in Italy." [4:19]

"Traditional Italian cooking is all about two things: ingredients, which are local... and the other thing is the skill of a homemaker who today would be a great grandmother." [8:15]

"Here I am in this little town in Puglia that no one goes to, off the beaten path, and I can't find parsley but I can find all the Pringles I want!" [17:30]
