Michael Krondl is talking Easter sweets on this week's episode of A Taste of the Past! Michael joins Linda Pelaccio in the studio to shed some light on some confusing Easter mythology. Why do we give chocolate bunnies at Easter time? Why are rabbits and eggs Easter symbols? Also, listen in to learn the history behind eating sweet bread during the Easter holiday. Hear about other ancient spring celebrations, and find out what foods were eaten to improve fertility. How do desserts differ across Europe, and how do their traditions help distinguish desserts from everyday breads? Celebrate Easter on today's episode of A Taste of the Past! This program has been sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

"Bread has a very complicated meaning (in fertility holidays). In Christianity, bread represents the body of Christ. The idea of having these breads for Easter ties in with Christianity, but it probably came before Christianity in Europe." [4:00]

"Sweet things used to be rare and expensive. They used to be associated with the priest class." [27:20]

This week Cutting the Curd host Greg Blais kicks off the new year with all-star guest Anne Saxelby, first catching up about the crazy cheese holidays before getting into their 2014 year in review. The duo discuss fondness for the Spring Brook Reading Raclette before deeming 2014 as the year of regulations in cheese. Revisiting the Food Safety Modernization Act and what it meant for imported and domestic cheeses, Anne points out that American cheeses have never been better and that by not being able to import certain cheeses anymore, it encourages domestic cheeses to step up. They go on to point out other regulations that came to fruition in the past year and how it has affected the industry. After the break, the chat turns to the very recent winner of the Cheesemonger Invitational, Matt Reilly, who is an alum of the NYC Eataly branch, trained by none other than Greg. Anne gets the scoop on how Eataly has trained Matt as well as the previous winner, Emily Acosta, and brainstorms an idea for a 'Senior' Cheesemonger Invitational. Closing out the show, Greg and Anne share what they are looking forward to in 2015 and great cheeses to look forward to. This program was brought to you by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

"You can't treat a dairy farm with ten cows the same way you'd treat a giant, industrial farm in Wisconsin or California. Of course you need good practices across the board... but what it looks like is different from operation to operation." [8:00]

This week on The Farm Report, Erin ushers in blueberry season! She welcomes Ed Flanagan, CEO of Wyman's of Maine to the program. Wyman's of Maine is a family owned company that specializes in the growing and marketing of wild blueberries. At the top of the show, Ed explains that Wyman's of Maine believes in the Japanese philosophy known as "kaizen," roughly translated as continuous improvement. Simply put: Wyman's has to do all they can to grow their business. Erin and Ed then delve in to discuss the details of the blueberry business, beginning with the distinctions between the wild and cultivated blueberry, Wyman's approach to the growing season, as well as the topic of honey bees and how vital they are to the business. With concerns such as colony collapse disorder, a strange phenomenon where worker bees abruptly disappear, Ed explains how Wyman's had to research, adapt and become invested in bee-keeping to further sustain their livelihood. Grab a smoothie and tune in for a great discussion on the super fruit! This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.

"A wild blueberry is much smaller, about three times smaller, than a cultivated blueberry. Generally, the flavor of a fruit is condensed around the skin, so in a handful of wild blueberries you're going to get more flavor." [7:14]

"We aspire to get to that point someday where we absolutely need no preventative chemicals." [12:50]

"What happened for us that was pretty good luck was right about the time that blueberries were being regarded as a healthy food was just about the same time that people started drinking smoothies." [19:45]

"We are out of business if there are no honey bees to put in our fields." [26:26]
