On today's episode of A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio speaks with special guest Mollie Katzen, known throughout the culinary world as one of the best-selling cookbook authors of all time. A 2007 inductee into the James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame—and largely credited with moving plant-based cuisine from the fringe to the center of the American dinner plate—Katzen has been named by Health Magazine as one of The Five Women Who Changed the Way We Eat, and she has been a member of the faculty at Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives, the groundbreaking annual symposium co-hosted by The Culinary Institute of America and the Harvard School of Public Health, since its inception. Today's topic on the show includes the evolution of vegetarian cuisine, and how Mollie has taken the rise of vegetarian popularity to even further heights. Her latest cookbook, The Heart of the Plate, completely reinvents the vegetarian repertoire, unveiling a collection of beautiful, healthful, and unfussy dishes — her “absolutely most loved.” Whether it’s a salad of kale and angel hair pasta with orange chili oil or a seasonal autumn lasagna, these dishes are celebrations of vegetables. Tune-in to learn more! This program has been sponsored by Fairway Market.

"A lot of vegetarian food isn't actually about vegetables. In some ways it's actually about meat, and how you swap things out." [9:50]

"It's so much easier to make a dish that is focused on the vegetable. It's so enjoyable!" [23:50]

It's Linsanity on A Taste of the Past!! Tune in as Linda discusses the cuisine and culture of Taiwan with Jessica Chien and Joanne Liu, freelance pastry chefs. Learn the differences between China, Japan and Taiwan when it comes to food and hear what makes Taiwanese cuisine stand out from the rest. From their bountiful produce and livestock options to the creative cultural dishes, listeners will come away with a new found knowledge and respect for the food from this Asian-Pacific island. This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

"What makes Taiwanese food unique is that the country is self sustaining. There's plentiful amounts of agriculture, seafood, poultry, pork and beef. In mainland China, there are provinces where you can only have one type of vegetable or livestock. It's not as bountiful as Taiwan."

--Freelance Pastry Chef, Author and Food Blogger Jessica Chien on A Taste of the Past

Find out why you should trust your taste buds - not your nose - when it comes to Korean food and hear why Hooni's ultimate dream is just to make people happy. Today's show was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

"Being a foodie was a hobby. Asian kids didn't grow up to be chefs. If you weren't smart - you ended up in the kitchen. I never thought about cooking as a profession." [17:00]

"It's good to have rules, but ultimately I think a chef's job isn't about the food - it's about people coming in to the restaurant to have a good time. It's our job to facilitate that and it's not always about the food." [29:00]

"My friends should be able to come into the restaurant and before even tasting the food and say 'This reminds me of Hooni' " [39:00]

"Cheese tastes amazing - but if you just smell it, you'll never taste it. That's the same with Korean fermented food." [48:00]
