Food from a historical perspective

Great podcast that blends food and history. I love to listen while baking. Linda has on great guests and while her off-the-cuff banter can be awkward at times, she does her research on the guest's subject and asks great questions, making each episode fly by enjoyably with a lot of info and clear joy of the subject.

Amazing topics related to food and history!

I came upon A Taste of the Past by accident and have never looked back!! I learn something ( many things!!) every episode of this podcast! It’s my favorite one! From Sugar to salt to peanuts and seeds to cookbooks and women’s rights...all kinds of tidbits and history! I’m thankful that this podcasts opens my eyes to so many things about the history of food!

Fascinating top, wrong host

I love this topic so much but I just can’t listen to the host fumble and stammer through the material. There were a few episodes that I pushed through because the guest was great. Please, someone revamp this podcast format.
