This week on Eat Your Words, host Cathy Erway welcomes Lou Di Palo of Italian Selects and author of the new book, Di Palo’s Guide to the Essential Foods of Italy. Rachel Wharton, a food writer, also joins the program, having traveled with Lou to gather information and help write the book. Talking to Cathy about his family’s prominent background in the food industry (Lou’s great-grandfather started their business in 1903!) as well as why he decided to take on writing a book, Lou talks in great detail about making cheese and dairy products like his great-grandfather and father did. Join in for a delicious discussion on amazing foods courtesy of Italy – led by an expert! This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.
