Food can show you the world. It can be about geography, politics, and culture. And sometimes it's just about what tastes good! But each of these things have boundaries, and today's show explores some. We'll have a scientific look at foods that can be one person's delicacies and another's "yuk". We talk to Lidia Bastianich about the changing boundaries in her childhood - and regional pasta. Raymond Sokolov has 101 vegetable ideas, and we take a look at the many regional cuisines of India. Plus spaghetti for breakfast, pairing cheese with beer and, yes, even beer ice cream. [Broadcast Date: September 20, 2007]
