Simple Pleasures: Mediterranean Foods In The Ameri
series: Burt Wolf: What We Eat
air date: 2/20/13 9:30 AM
When the first Spanish explorers set sail with Columbus in 1492, they provisioned their ships with olive oil, dried peas, wine, pork and fish-the foods that made up the Mediterranean diet of the time. As the explorers returned to Spain, they brought with them tomatoes, potatoes, hot peppers, and beans. When all these foods are taken together you have today's Mediterranean diet, which has become the most popular gastronomic tradition in America. This program looks at the history of the foods of the Mediterranean and how they have affected people in Europe and the Americas.
