A Taste of the Past
This week on A Taste of the Past Linda spoke to Jane Ziegelman, author of the book "97 Orchard: An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement". The focus of the show was the process by which American palates have benefitted from the cookbooks immigrants brought over from native lands at the turn of the last century. For many immigrant families, compiling family recipies and passing them down from generation to generation was a time honored tradition, and thanks to dedicated home cooks and a myriad of archival resources we can all benefit from this combined mass of international, intercultural knowledge.
