Tune in for a lively discussion on grains and their place in culinary history.

From health benefits to culinary applications, Bruce gives listeners plenty to digest on this week's episode of A Taste of the Past. This program was sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

"Millet was the grain of China before rice. Some of the oldest pastas found in China were made of millet flour."

"If you eat whole grain cereal for breakfast you'll be less hungry later than you would if you ate regular sugary cereal."

"Seasonings and flavors have been dumbed down across the board. As a society - we've grown accustomed to more tasteless food that's been over-processed."

"Grains are for everybody - they're not just for the vegans and vegetarians among us!"
