We're very excited to offer an exclusive interview in this episode as we sit down for a chat with Kathryn Boor, the newly-appointed Dean of Cornell University's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. When she officially begins her term on July 1st, she'll be at the helm of New York State's largest agricultural college, the land grant university of the state, putting her in a unique position to help enrich and advance agricultural prosperity and research throughout our region. We learned a lot from talking with her about the role of food science in our modern society, and about the challenges facing the food industries in New York and across the country. It's a conversation guaranteed to enlighten anyone with an interest in where our food is coming from.

And in our restaurant review for this podcast, we continue eating our way through every restaurant in Ithaca from A-Z with dinner downtown at Just A Taste on Aurora Street. With a menu full of great options, we had a lot to talk about.

Tip: When you get to the K's, and Kelly's Dock-Side Cafe, I recommend trying their succulent corned beef. They make it themselves!

P.S. Congratulations on the new job, D.C.!

I actually just came across your podcast a couple of months ago, but I wanted to let you know about the new Buffalo Wild Wings. I happen to be an employee there. We are opening on Monday June 14th. BWW is a wing and beer joint, with a theme focussed on sports. TVs line the walls and every sports game will be displayed so that people can enjoy them in an energetic environment. I would offer my personal opinions on the food, but I sense a conflict of interest, so I would just like to invite you in so that you can try it yourself! Suffice it to say that you need to try the wings. See you soon!

Hooray! RT @Food2: Happy National Ice Cream Soda Day!

Palmer's, on Green Street downtown, makes a respectable one. Anyone know of any other places in the Ithaca area that can manage it?
