For years Food History remained the purview of a few researchers writing papers for academic journals. But recently interest has grown in knowing what we ate in times past, and where certain foods in different cuisines came from. Emelyn Rude joins Linda to talk about a start-up magazine on the horizon called REPAST that aims to tell the interesting stories about food history that will appeal to everyone. And one of the early contributors, Ken Albala, a professor of history who has devoted a good part of his career writing about and teaching students about food and culinary history talks about his views on this growing interest.
