I was honored to be one of two guests today on Linda Pelaccio's Heritage Radio Network program "A Taste of the Past." The show is broadcast live over the internet from a studio that adjoins Roberta's restaurant in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Linda is a culinary historian and if you click through the archives of her show you'll be amazed by the scope and depth of her knowledge -- plus, she has a really sexy radio voice. Today's program explored cooking with and collecting cast-iron cookware. We were joined by Joel Schiff, who has amassed a collection of roughly eight thousand pieces of cast-iron cookware (!!). We had a lot of fun, and when the show was over we repaired to Roberta's to share a couple of outstanding pizzas.
