If you're old enough, you remember the days when "cafeteria ladies" had a craft and the food at school was hand made, right down to the dinner rolls. After decades of moving away from that proud tradition, districts are slowly returning to it. In Maryland, a stand-out "boot camp" for food service workers statewide teaches basic cookery, nutrition science, professional kitchen protocols, and much more. It's a model for training programs that are emerging all over the nation as schools work their way forward (and back) to more real, fresh food in the cafeteria. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"The folks that attend our training are trained on how to train and then there's a ripple effect." [05:30]

"We're trying to be catalysts for the local economy and jump-start it through economic development. which is just a sidebar to all this [school food initiative]" [35:00]

"Anybody can heat anything up regardless of technique - but to actually have to chop vegetables or whatever the recipe calls for - gives me more pride." [36:00]

Korean food is incredible - full of fermented goodness and culinary tradition, but it's often overlooked. Find out how Hooni Kim is changing people's perceptions of Korean Food and elevating the cuisine on a brand new episode of Chef's Story. Chef Kim is the chef/owner of Hanjan and Danji, two restaurants that re-imagine Korean food in imaginative and inventive ways. Host Dorothy Cann Hamilton chats with chef Kim about his background in medicine, his transition to the kitchen and his passion for the food of Korea. Find out why you should trust your taste buds - not your nose - when it comes to Korean food and hear why Hooni's ultimate dream is just to make people happy. Today's show was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

"Being a foodie was a hobby. Asian kids didn't grow up to be chefs. If you weren't smart - you ended up in the kitchen. I never thought about cooking as a profession." [17:00]

"It's good to have rules, but ultimately I think a chef's job isn't about the food - it's about people coming in to the restaurant to have a good time. It's our job to facilitate that and it's not always about the food." [29:00]

"My friends should be able to come into the restaurant and before even tasting the food and say 'This reminds me of Hooni' " [39:00]

"Cheese tastes amazing - but if you just smell it, you'll never taste it. That's the same with Korean fermented food." [48:00]

Darina Allen joins us on this week's episode of A Taste of the Past, to tell us about Ballymaloe Cookery School located in southern Ireland, of which she is the founder. Linda asks her about real Irish cuisine, and she explains how many people in Ireland were so slow to realize the great benefits of using local food. This program has been sponsored by The International Culinary Center. Today's music provided by Pamela Royal.

"The whole image of irish food, particularly over here [in the U.S.] in no way reflects what's happening in Ireland." [9:00]
