Today’s episode of Taste Matters is “All in the Family” as host Mitchell Davis is joined by his cousin Madeline Poley, co-chef and co-proprietor of Soho Charcuterie, author of “The Soho Charcuterie Cookbook”, President at Big Thyme Inc. and Co-founder & Partner at New York Burger Co. Tune in for a discussion on everything from Jewish spaghetti to French cuisine as Mitchell and Madeline reminisce on food memories and culinary beginnings. As much as things change, they stay the same and Madeline recalls her experiences with farm to table ingredients and do-it-yourself culture in the 1970’s and explains what the NYC food scene was like back then. This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.
“What we were doing in the 70’s is very similar to whats going on today. There weren’t as many resources, but we’d get in our VW van and go get fresh milk from the dairy farm in New Jersey, we’d get vegetables from farms on the North Shore, etc.”
“Even an omelet can be noble. What’s so exciting today is watching people use their creativity – whether it be a great sandwich or something far more exotic.”
