On the 200th episode of THE FOOD SEEN, the lovely Julia Bainbridge, food editor for Yahoo Food, uses an anthropological approach to decipher our trending foodways. A native of Maryland’s crab, lake trout, and pit beef cuisine, her journey into food media was one through forming her sense of style. It shows in the parties she throws, as Julia’s an impeccable hostess, who uses fashion and wit to seamlessly weave pop and past cultures together for an unforgettable scene. She also knows where all the coolest restaurant wallpaper hangs, the hottest horseshoe-shaped bars, and the best up-and-coming ingredients (e.g. bottarga, ancient grains like kamut) to have in your pantry. Needless to say, she’s “in the know”. This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.

"Honestly, sometimes I get a little sick of talking about food just as food." [12:00]

"Women in New York are constantly picking each other up - I've picked up more chicks at bars than dudes. We're connectors!" 19:00

"The fun in plating is you can do it differently depending on how you're feeling and what the food is." [35:00]

This week on A Taste of the Past, Abigail Carroll joins host Linda Pelaccio via phone for a discussion on the American meal. Abigail Carroll is the author of Three Squares: The Invention of the American Meal, where she upends the popular understanding of our most cherished mealtime traditions, revealing that our eating habits have never been stable—far from it, in fact. Whether we’re pouring ourselves a bowl of cereal, grabbing a quick sandwich, or congregating for a family dinner, our mealtime habits are living artifacts of our collective history—and represent only the latest stage in the evolution of the American meal. Tune-in for a historical context on how the dinner table became an evening ritual, and how this has caused with the rise of processed foods and snacking, associated problems as well. This program has been sponsored by Fairway Market. Thanks to The California Honeydrops for today's music.

"We're talking about food in our society almost more than ever, and all these foods trends. But I don't see people talk about how we eat - the social context of food, the family meal, and the value of that." [22:15]
