On the first Taste Matters episode of 2014, JBF’s Mitchell Davis talked with CEO and author Liz Neumark of catering company Great Performances and the year-round, organic Katchkie Farm. With its commitment to innovative cuisine and sourcing local ingredients, Great Performances is one of the most popular catering companies in New York City. The pair discussed the challenges of using seasonal ingredients with planned catering menus, the importance of cooking skills for young people, how thoughtful food preparation can eliminate diet-related disease, and crucial labor issues in the food industry.

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!
