This week A Taste of The Past investigates the rise in popularity and power of TV cooking shows. Host Linda Pelaccio looks into the origins that have resulted in today's obsession with food TV, with hundreds of shows on a multitude of dedicated food and cooking networks, they find the catalyst in the impossibly original and witty Julia Child. With the help of NYU Cinema Studies professor Dana Polan, who has written a book about the subject, discover how Julia transformed America's views of home cooking and made us enamored of French cuisine. From her refusal to use any product placement to harnessing the power of PBS, learn about this food icon and the food media empire she help give birth to.

When Sex in the City went to Magnolia Bakery it wasn't long before cupcakes became all the rage not just in New York City but across the United States. But look out, a new pastry has been quietly but quickly stealing the scene: the French macaron. But is it here to stay or just another food fad? Linda Pelaccio sits down with pastry chefs Kathryn Gordon and Anne McBride who have just written a new book, Les Petits Macarons to discuss the delicious pastry's history, benefits (no fat and gluten free!), and staying power in the dessert food world. Tune in for a how-to guide making your own macarons or where you can take a macaron making class. This episode is sponsored by Cain Vineyard and Winery.
