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]

"My mother and father could put up with a lot of things, but not bad food..."

"I think a lot people have a misconception that fried food is always going to be greasy and heavy, but fried properly it's really a wonderful way to cook because it seals the natural flavors of the food inside with this crispy exterior. It's almost the purest way of enjoying something when it's very well fried."

"The act of cooking together creates a bond within a family."

This week on the Morning After, Sari and Jessie open the program with a few thoughts on food television these days and cell phones in the restaurant setting. Guest Sal Lamboglia, Chef and Partner of Bar Primi, weighs in on these topics with the ladies before delving into his Italian background and how his father worked in Little Italy as a chef in the late '80s - something that inspired Sal as a child to gravitate toward the kitchen. Being recently named on the NYC Zagat 30 Under 30 for his efforts at notable restaurants like The Dutch, Lafayette, and his own Bar Primi, Sal takes Sari and Jessie through his amazing career thus far. Tune in to hear all about Bar Primi and how it sets itself apart from the traditional Italian pasta shop. This program was sponsored by Edwards VA Ham.

"You see chefs and cooks in certain situations and how they respond to pressure. I think a bad experience is also a good experience because I learned what not to do." [28:00]

"Bar Primi means a lot because it's all I ever wanted to do and it's all I want to do." [32:20]
