This week on Taste Matters, Mitchell Davis discusses global food trends with award-winning American food, wine and travel writer and photographer Carla Capalbo. Tune in to hear her thoughts on the "new nordic cuisine", and some of the rebel bistros across the world that are garnering attention and acclaim. Find out some of Carla's favorite chefs at the moment and learn about how trends in foraging pickling and fermentation are influencing restaurants globally. This program was sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

"I'm feeling more and more drawn as an eater to emotional responses. The visual side of food is extraordinarily important, but that doesn't stop me from being totally blown away from a fantastic dish of pasta cooked by somebody's grandmother."

"Real soul food does affect you in all of your parts."

--Carla Capalbo on Taste Matters
