On this week's episode of Taste Matters, JBF's Mitchell Davis spoke with Hasia Diner, author and professor of Hebrew and Judaic studies and history at New York University, about the food culture of Irish, Italian, and Jewish immigrants. The pair discussed assumptions about American cuisine, authenticity, and the cultural, social, and economic practices relating to the production and consumption of food in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Taste Matters is a radio program dedicated to taste: as a sense, cultural construct, and culinary phenomenon. However much we talk about where our food comes from, how it’s produced, who prepares it, or what sorts of socio-cultural-political implications our food choices and eating behaviors have, taste is fundamental.
You can catch Taste Matters with Mitchell Davis live every Wednesday at 11:00 A.M. on Heritage Radio Network, or listen to the show afterwards right here on our blog. To check out past episodes, click here. Stay tuned for more!
