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]

How does one begin to encapsulate the varied cuisine of Italy? On this episode of A Taste of the Past, Linda Pelaccio is joined by Associate Professor at the New School, Fabio Parasecoli. Recently, Fabio released Al Dente, a book about the history of food in Italy. Learn how a desire for modernization suppressed the interest in Italian heirloom ingredients. Find out how economic conditions shaped Italian cuisine today. Why is Italian food so regionally diverse, and how do Italians express their local pride through food? How did Italians incorporate agricultural products from other areas into their culinary identity? Find out on this week's episode of A Taste of the Past! Thanks to our sponsor, The International Culinary Center. Music by Idgy Dean.

"There was this idea of being 'modern' rather than 'Italian', and that allowed for the spread of products throughout the country, and many of them were industrialized food products." [9:30]
