    Justin Trabue, winemaker and activist, Lumen Wines, Santa Maria

    Justin Trabue is the assistant winemaker at Lumen Wines in Santa Maria, California. She is a fourth-generation Washingtonian, and she is Black, which definitely puts her in the minority on California’s Central Coast, and even more so in the local wine industry. Justin and fellow Black winemaker Simonne Mitchelson wrote a letter to the wine industry, using it to raise funds for the local grassroots organization, RACE Matters, SLO. Justin was recognized for that achievement by Wine & Spirits Magazine and named one of its “Rising Black Voices in Wine.” Listen in on my conversation with Justin about wine, race, and Lord of the Rings, and don’t miss the other episodes of CONSUMED for which she is a special guest host.

At the time of this interview, she had just taken a job with Tin City Cider, opening their new tasting room in Los Olivos, California.

    Jerime Ford, pitmaster, San Luis Obispo

    Guest host Justin Trabue interviews pitmaster Jerime Ford about his roots, which he can trace back to the great barbecue traditions of the South. Jerime grew up in San Luis Obispo, and he talks about what it was like often being the only Black kid in school and elsewhere, and how he’d love to turn his love of music and his love of food into a jazz club and soul food restaurant in downtown San Luis Obispo.
    Jerime mentions an attachment to turn a standard charcoal grill into a Santa Maria Style grill. See Gabby’s Grills here for more info.
