Darina Allen is an Irish chef, food writer, TV personality, and founder of the Ballymaloe Cookery School in Schanagarry, County Cork, Ireland. In this week's episode of A Taste of the Past, Darina explains the current state of Irish food and culture in our society today, bringing us back to the history of Irish culture from the beginning. Darina also talks about founding the Ballymaloe Cookery School, the only cookery school in the world located in the middle of its own 100-acre organic farm. As a result, the school is completely self-sufficient, and people can come for a simple afternoon cooking class, or a full course designed to take the amateur cook further in his or her studies. Hear about Darina's book, Irish Traditional Cooking (published by Kyle Books), and how she hopes to reconnect us with the cooking skills that have been forgotten for generations. This program has been sponsored by Bonnie Plants.

"Its not just about economics, it's about the whole quality life - an appreciation for the quality of life." [16:50]

This week on Eating Disorder, the Rev. Spyro, Chef Paul, and Crazy Legs Conti take on the topic of foraging for food. To start, the guys bring on Lee Allen Peterson, expert on edible wild plants, to corroborate and quell their thoughts on the more traditional survival technique. Lee cautions the crew on nature's warning signs concerning wild foods as well as ways to successfully eat wild. In the second half of the show, Wildman Steve Brill and daughter Violet hit home the concept of urban foraging. Telling the infamous tale of being arrested for eating wild dandelions in Central Park, Steve still leads regular tours through the park, spreading the word on the urban foraging lifestyle. Tune in to hear all about living off the land - wild or urban! This program was brought to you by Fairway Market.

"Things are out in the wild are usually more clean and more germ free than things you're going to get in the markets." [12:32]

--Lee Allen Peterson on Eating Disorder

"I've been doing this for 32 years - I just had close to 80 people in Central Park, no one has ever gotten sick. The stuff is makes you healthy. It's what you buy in the fast food places that makes you sick." [31:11]
