Cajun breakfasts for Mardi Gras; GMO Alfalfa and Sugar Beets; the Whole Hog; "Farm Direct" House Bill 2336

program: 
Food Show
program date: 
Wed, 02/16/2011

February may be our shortest month, but we still bring you a sumptuous yet policy-packed Food Show! We begin again with the first meal of the day. Breakfast in Bridgetown author Paul Gerald returns to talk Cajun petit dejeuner spots in advance of Mardi Gras (March 8).

Then, we dip into the raging debate over the USDA's deregulation of both GMO alfalfa and sugar beets--twin blows to the state's many organic farmers. At the recent Organicology conference, Food Show veteran Marliese Franklin caught up with the Center for Food Safety's Andrew Kimbrell and Philomath-based organic seed grower Frank Morton on their mobilization against this decision. Check out Locus Focus's more in-depth interview with Morton on his fight against these RoundUp Ready sugar beets.

 Local Organic Valley farmer Jon Bansen also called in from Monmouth to describe how GMO alfalfa threatens our organic milk supply.

On a lighter note, householder extraordinaire Harriet Fasenfest brings us a segment on putting up the whole hog. She's curing proscuitto and lardo (among other things!) with the pig she just received from Square Peg Farms.

Finally, the Oregon House just passed  "Farm Direct Bill" (House Bill 2336) with a bipartisan vote. It would allow farmers to sell a small volume of pickles and preserves directly to consumers, without a license. The Oregon Farmer's Market Association's Rebecca Landis gives us the details. Now, it goes on to the Senate.

Black Farmers Settlement with USDA; Food Safety Modernization Act; Interview with the Curious Cook Harold McGee

program: 
Food Show
program date: 
Sun, 12/19/2010

President Obama just signed into law a $1.15 billion settlement with thousands of black farmers who were discriminated against by the United States Department of Agriculture. So we began the show with an update from John Boyd Jr., president of the National Black Farmers Association, who spoke with us in February.

Speaking of legislation, the Senate and House had passed versions of the (seemingly now doomed) FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. But would the bill grant adequate exemptions to Oregon's many small farmers? We discussed the matter with Susan Boyd of Oregon Rural Action in La Grande and Albany farmer Scott Frost, who runs Nature's Fountain.

Finally, we rebroadcast Eugene Bradley's engaging interview with New York Times food science expert Harold McGee. McGee's latest book is Keys to Good Cooking: A Guide to Making the Best of Food and Recipes.

Be sure to tune in every third Wednesday of the month at 11 a.m. to your community radio station, KBOO 90.7 FM in Portland/100.7 FM in Corvallis/91.9 FM in Hood River. We'll warm you up with a special soup-themed show on January 19.

Our October show featured all things fermented and French. First, organizers of Portland's second annual Fermentation Festival joined us in-studio to tell us about the D.I.Y. pickles, krauts and kefirs they exhibited at the second annual Portland Fermentation Festival. Then David Welch, the co-owner and bar master at Lincoln, stopped by to plug another D.I.Y. event. He's running a "Bar Camp" to take the fear out of mixing old-fashioned cocktails. Finally, Laura presented a brief recording with favorite cookbook author Dorie Greenspan, who has just published Around My French Table. Greenspan and former Oregonian food editor Martha Holmberg mused on the revival of French cuisine in a talk at the Heathman Hotel in Portland October 19.

The Story Behind Shark's Fin Soup; Grand Central Bakery's Piper Davis

program: 
Food Show
program date: 
Wed, 09/15/2010

 

The Food Show is back after our summer hiatus!
First, we look at the local (and international) controversy over shark's fin soup. Researchers estimate that as many as 73 million sharks are slaughtered each year for their fins. We have two in-studio guests. Portland scuba diver Phil Tobin launched a local campaign to get Portland's popular Wong's King Seafood restaurants to remove the Catonese delicacy from their menu. And China anthropologist Tami Blumenfield will give us a cultural perspective on this contentious food. Unfortunately, no one from Wong's King was able to join us in-studio, but check out their perspective in this response letter that ran in the Willamette Week.
 

 
Then, on a sunnier note, Grand Central Bakery co-owner Piper Davis tells us about a country fair and urban farming expo Saturday at the bakery's North Freemont location. And she'll tempt us with seasonal recipes from The Grand Central Baking Book.
 
Unfortunately, we ran out of time to hear from NICKY USA about this weekend's 10th annual "Wild About Game" cook-off. Check out the website for more on this start chef-studded event.

Be sure to tune in the third Wednesday of every month at 11 a.m. (2 p.m. EST)  to your community radio station, KBOO 90.7 FM in Portland/100.7 FM in Corvallis/91.9 FM in Hood River. Call us at 503-231-8187 during the show with questions for our guests!
