This week on Eating Disorder Spyro and guest co-host St. John Frizell of Fort Defiance in Red Hook take on the age old topic of the bartender. The role is one that can be mentally and physically taxing, and is often responsible for making or breaking a night out. The guys bring on two pro New York bartenders, Olufemi Akiwumi-Assani and Kevin Ang, to talk about the job behind the scenes and why they take their craft so seriously. Join the crew as they navigate the science of a great drink, hilarious (puke) stories, and an in-depth description of the worst customers. This program was sponsored by Roberta's.

"With crafting cocktails, there's very few parts that go into it that make a simple cocktail, a classic cocktail very, very good. But with these things, they all have to be regimented, they all have to be treated seriously so you have consistency and results. Jiggers are important." [8:19]

-- Kevin Ang on Eating Disorder

"As bartenders, we're reverse babysitters. We watch them come in as normal people and then we turn them into children as they go home." [29:07]

-- Olufemi Ariwumi-Assani

This week on A Taste of the Past, Andrew F. Smith once again joins Linda Pelaccio in the studio! Andy teaches food history at the New School in New York City, and is the author and editor of numerous books on culinary history. On this episode, Andy talks about his newest book called Drinking History: Fifteen Turning Points in the Making of American Beverages. Hear about water quality during the Colonial period, and how it led to the proliferation of alcoholic beverages. Why did beer not succeed initially in the New World? Learn about the gendered considerations of specific drinks, like tea and alcohol. Listen in to find out some surprising facts about Prohibition, and how the movement directly related to the outcome of World War I. This program has been sponsored by 360 Cookware.

"Food is even more important than food. You can go for weeks without food, but you need to take in water every couple of days." [5:40]

"People think that we drink a lot of alcohol now, but we don't drink as much as if it were earlier times." [10:30]

"New Yorkers never believe Prohibition was for them. The upper classes drank from the beginning to the end." [29:40]
