This week on A Taste of the Past Linda spoke to "Hoppin John" Taylor, master of "low-country" cooking. The low country is the coastal area of the Carolinas originally settled by wealthy plantation owners from Barbados. After French Huguenots and Mediterranean Jews settled along with an influx of West African slaves, a cultural and culinary melting pot resulted, giving the US its first taste of a huge range of foods and dishes. This episode was sponsored by Fairway: like no other market.
