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]

"We need to be able to cook, to sit down around the table again." [23:10]

On today’s episode of The Food Seen, “Big Bad Chef” John Currence, heads north from New Orleans, finding his home, and his calling, in Oxford, Mississippi. With him, he brought the culinary archaeology of his heritage, taking cues from the Gulf Coast, and inflecting his food with Southern traditions. As a member of the Southern Foodways Alliance, John’s penchant to preserve and proliferate regional cuisine in America’s South, from techniques like pickling, canning, brining, smoking, and slathering, allows him to playfully riff on gumbo, while honoring the past. In his first cookbook, Pickles, Pigs & Whiskey, not only denotes his 3 favorite food groups, but shares recipes from his beloved restaurants such as City Grocery, Snackbar, Big Bad Breakfast, Bouré, and Lamar Lounge. Make yourself a drink, turn on some music, and rock out to some Southern hospitality. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"Mississippi is sort of a strange place. We spend a lot of time doing culinary archaeology. The city doesn't have a whole lot of definable food-ways." [8:00]

"There's nothing in the world that I quite love like making dinner for my wife, and not just because I can't make anything she doesn't like." [22:00]
