Mixing together the love of fresh food with memories that have made us who we are, the Noshtalgia podcast is a culinary trip down memory lane. We take food memories from real people and help to bring them to life...because so many important and memorable moments happen around the dinner table.

Noshtalgia Podcast Episode 1: Poppy’s Waldorf Salad

We meet a family determined to recreate their patriarch's famous Waldorf Salad. Apryl says her grandfather, "Poppy,"made his signature Waldorf Salad for every holiday and family gathering without fail, and it was the best she ever tasted. Sadly, Poppy passed away in 2005 and never wrote down his recipe, so Apryl needs some help learning how to make it. Kroger's Product Development Chef, Brandon, joins us to help Apryl recreate the beloved dish and gives us a brief history of the delicious Waldorf Salad.
