Eating the Past: the history and culture of beer, wine and spirits in Utah

Black wine bottles lie side by side.
Dan Cristian Padure

On this week's Eating the Past, we revisit an older episode, celebrating National Repeal Day on December 5th. Host Jamie Sanders speaks with David Rich Lewis, Emeritus Professor of History at Utah State University.

They discuss the history of drinking in the Beehive State, Prohibition and Utah alcohol culture. And David shares his favorite cocktail recipes.

Jamie Sanders is a historian of Latin America at Utah State and his family’s cook. He grew up in the rural South and loves its regional cuisine, but a study abroad trip to the Yucatán when he was a teenager really awakened him to international food culture.
