Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop  "James Abbott McNeill Whistler's Venetian Etchings"  David travels to beautiful Venetian locations that inspired provocative, iconoclastic artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) during his transformative trip in 1879-1880. Whistler's fame from the etchings that he created in the backstreets of Venice helped rehabilitate his artistic reputation after a disastrous libel trial with noted art critic John Ruskin. David demonstrates a dry point on a copper plate alongside a canal, the Rio de San Barnaba, located near Whistler's first studio at the Ca' Rezzonico, demonstrating Whistler's brilliance in graphic design. D

He ends in Assisi - the hometown of St. Francis - which retains its spiritual aura to this day. D
9:00 pm 
Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions  "Making A Restaurant, Part 1"  One of the first questions that come to mind when we travel is, "Where should we eat?" Deciding on the right restaurant becomes an essential part of our travel plans and it's surprising to realize that just about everything that makes up a modern restaurant --- street floor access, a receptionist, seating, the wait staff, the kitchen in the back, and a written invoice --- was developed in Paris during a 50-year period starting in 1765. In this program, Burt travels around and looks at how these basic elements come together these days, when someone decides to open a restaurant. D
9:30 pm 
Lidia's Kitchen  "Italian American Favorites"  Italian American food: Is it Italian, American or a piece of Americana with Italian roots? Today Lidia pays homage to the cooking of Italian American immigrants. Recipes include: caesar salad; a luscious baked eggplant stuffed with meat and vegetables; and finally stuffed mushrooms, a true crowd pleaser. D

My Greek Table with Diane Kochilas  "Crete: Mother of the Mediterranean"  Diane visits the source of the well-known Mediterranean diet: Crete. A hearty, soul-satisfying breakfast grain called hondros, or cracked wheat, gives a great start to the day. For a glimpse of village life, she follows a local family's daily routine of working the land and cooking up a storm and meets an unusual farmer who lives the way people did on Crete a hundred years ago. D
11:00 pm 
New Scandinavian Cooking  "Burning Sweet Desire"  There is a distinct word in Swedish for having something sweet together with a cup of coffee, namely fika. In today's episode, Niklas makes sweet buns at his restaurant in the middle of Stockholm and enjoys them with a cup of coffee, before he travels to South America to investigate the coffee and food traditions from these faraway places. D
11:30 pm 
Fringe Benefits  "Pittsburgh"  This former rust belt city is undergoing a renaissance. We meet a French and Indian War re-enactor and learn the rich history of the region, and its important location at the "three rivers." We join an adventure guide for a bike tour through new rail-to-trail paths, and get a taste of local agriculture with a visit to the Ligonier farmers' market. D
