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."

Salad bars aren't rocket science, but getting them right calls for careful, common-sense assembly with the right ingredients. If you've listened to Salad Bars Part 1 (and we suggest that you do), maybe you're wondering if you can get salad bars to work in your district--or work better. Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools can help. Need equipment donation? Technical assistance? A community of practice? You've come to the right place. This program was brought to you by Bonnie Plants.

"78% of the districts that we surveyed reported increased purchases of fruits and vegetables after implementing a salad bar. The goal here is to provide more access to fruits and vegetables to kids." [07:00]

"With good education and signage - you do not have excess waste at salad bars." [20:00]
