This week on A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio is feeling festive, talking the history of the turkey with food historian Andrew Smith. Teaching food history at the New School in NYC, he is also the author of numerous books and hundreds of articles on food and history. Speaking on the the centerpiece of family Thanksgiving reunions, the turkey is a cultural symbol as well as a multi-billion dollar industry. As a bird, dinner, commodity, and national icon, the turkey has become as American as the bald eagle. Sitting down with Linda, Andrew discusses how this new world bird landed on the world's tables starting with the bird's origins and first recipes, before bringing up the topic of pickled turkey. After the break, Andrew explains how the turkey overcame the traditional goose holiday dinner, variations of stuffing throughout the years, and the preservation of heritage turkey breeds. Tune in for this timely episode! This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"Wild turkeys tend to taste very different depending on what they've consumed." [13:45]

"Serving turkey [on Thanksgiving] did not become universal until the late nineteenth century, though it was certainly on the menu." [26:20]

"In order to save the heritage turkeys you need to eat them." [30:00]

--Andrew Smith on A Taste of the Past

This week, on the very first episode of Native, host Briana Kurtz welcomes Robyn Eckhardt to the program. Robyn is known for her food and travel writing, specifically in Turkey and Asia, and today Briana chats with Robyn about the cuisine of the Black Sea Coast in Turkey. Explaining the staple food items of the area, Briana asks Robyn about her breakfast, lunch, and dinner habits in Turkey and gets a detailed account of Robyn's daily diet on while on move. After the break, Briana asks Robyn to expand on the basics about her time spent in Turkey - how she gets around as well as how the political climate affects her work. Tune in to hear a great account of the history of the coast of the Black Sea and its food customs! This program was brought to you by The Tabard Inn.

"The Black Sea and the region has this air about it that it's beautiful and it's mysterious, the way that on a winter day the sea will look inky and black and almost scary. And then, last week when I was up there it was this beautiful, placid, cobalt blue." [7:40]

"Once you get beyond Instanbul, especially out east, it's very much a locavore diet, and not because it's cool to be a locavore or the people are rediscovering being locavores, it's people out here always have. They eat what is grown and harvested, fished, and raised around them." [13:48]
