Why do we eat what we eat? Sure our taste buds tell us when something tastes bad. But where do our food customs originate? How and why did we connect certain foods as ‘goes-well-together’, while we didn’t mix others? How did the recipes evolve over the last 200 or more years to the items we find in restaurants and in homes today? Dann Woellert, Food Etymologist, eats and researches how our food came to be what it is. Starting with hometown comfort food favorites from his Midwestern Cincinnati, he uncovers the past and explains why good goetta has allspice or why lasagna has only four layers. Journey with Dann to the roots of our favorite dishes.
