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]

This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda welcomes Cindy Lobel to the program. Cindy is an assistant professor of history at Lehman College, a cultural historian with interests in urban development and consumer culture as well as the history of New York. Today she and Linda discuss her book, Urban Appetites: Food and Culture in Nineteenth-Century New York. Was New York City the first in the country to have a restaurant? What was the first restaurant to open in New York City? Surprisingly, it seems as though present day New York food scene is not so different than it was in the 1800s. Tune in as Cindy takes us through the beginnings of restaurants in New York City and how the now flourishing industry evolved through the years. This program has been sponsored by Cain Vineyard and Winery.

"People think that New York was born with the Zagat Guide, and that of course is not the case... free standing restaurants have a history in New York." [5:40]

"The rise of restaurants is really tied to the growth of the city." [8:10]
