Getting excited about St. Patrick’s Day? Tune in to A Taste of the Past this week as Linda Pelaccio hosts Irish chef, TV personality, cookbook author and director of a new cookery school, Clodagh McKenna. Coming all the way from Dublin, Clodagh shares stories of growing up in Ireland and how she uses Guinness for a slow roast and pin-head oats in her soda bread. Listen in as she discusses the evolution of Irish cuisine since the 1970’s and the growing trend towards local sourcing and farmers markets. Clodagh has seen it all! She has her hands in everything, so tune in and hear about her passion for Irish farmers markets, traditional Irish cuisine, and her recent collaboration with Chef Chris Bradley at Untitled restaurant in the Whitney Museum! This program was sponsored by White Oak Pastures.
