Episode 37: Recipes From Paradise

October 11, 1997

You'll want to pack your bags and head to Italy after Fred Plotkin, author of Recipes from Paradise: Life and Food on the Italian Riviera, fills us in on Liguria. Fred will share his picks of not-to-be-missed small towns, some great Ligurian olive oils, and his recipe for an authentic Ligurian dish— potato-string bean tart. Jane and Michael Stern have been taking in the fall colors in Vermont and tell us about America's oldest general store located in Bath; and our Master of Wine, Mary Ewing Mulligan, shares her thoughts on what she considers might well be the last great buy in wine—Chianti.
