Our most recent episode:
In the Covid lockdown of spring 2020, flour and buttermilk instantly sold out in Irish shops. In Paris, it was small onions that disappeared. In London – toilet paper.
In our current episode, Dorothy Cashman helps us figure out differences such as these. She is a food historian with an expertise in the recipe books of the Irish Big House. She talks to us here about how an understanding of food is essential to understanding the culture of the place that it comes from. She explains the many ways in which food is always political, and what culinary history can tell us about the people we are now.
This episode is presented in association with the Dublin Review of Books. We heartily recommend the drb to supporters of Field Day. In the words of Seamus Deane: “The drb sustains a level of commentary on Irish and international matters that no other journal in Ireland and few elsewhere can reach.”
