Imagine spending the summer of your youth on your grandparent's farm in the Catskills of Upstate New York.  Kathy Mangan doesn't have to.  She had one of those amazing, magical opportunities to view first hand how food is grown and foraged.  Everything was sustainable.  If you wanted a pie, you went out and picked something to put in the pie.  All the kids worked together and were expected to do their share.  This created a lifelong bond of amazing memories of the wonderful big meals that her Irish grandmother made, including her her Irish Soda Bread.

Kathy has been on the quest to recreate her grandmother's soda bread.  So listen up and hear how Cathy travels to Ireland and learns how to truly make the bread that transports her to her childhood.
