    How to Launch an Ice Cream Business with Malai’s Pooja Bavishi

    How to Launch an Ice Cream Business with Malai’s Pooja Bavishi

    Pooja Bavishi knew she wanted to be in the dessert business, but she never envisioned herself as an ice cream entrepreneur. Then one year, during her annual Friendsgiving celebration, she broke out an ice cream maker her parents had given her and made two ice creams: ginger and star anise. Her friends raved and Pooja knew it was her a-ha moment. Fast forward: Pooja’s Malai ice cream is a growing brand with national distribution through Goldbelly and its own scoop shop in Brooklyn. Malai specializes in global flavors with a twist, many of which celebrate Pooja’s Indian heritage, such as Pumpkin Garam Masala Crumble, Jaggery with Tamarind Caramel, and Sweet Roti & Ghee. Tune in to hear all about Pooja’s cool journey.

    Padma Lakshmi and Madhur Jaffrey in Conversation

    Don’t miss this wise, warm, and wonderful conversation between Madhur Jaffrey and Padma Lakshmi. As Padma put it at this year’s Cherry Bombe Jubilee Conference, Madhur “is the greatest living writer on Indian food—ever.” Padma, the star of Top Chef and Taste the Nation and a best-selling author, interviewed Madhur at Jubilee and it was a riveting exchange that touched on a wide range of topics: protesting with Mahatma Gandhi, working with the legendary cookbook editor Judith Jones, facing discrimination as an Indian actress, and cheering on the young women championing both Indian food and representation today, like Priya Krishna and Meera Sodha. Madhur, who has written dozens of cookbooks, published her latest last spring, Madhur Jaffrey's Instantly Indian Cookbook: Modern and Classic Recipes for the Instant Pot.

    Introducing Madhur and Padma are Suzanne and Michelle Rousseau. The sisters and culinary superstars from Jamaica are the authors of the cookbooks Provisions and Caribbean Potluck.

    The Afros + Knives Miniseries: Devita Davison of FoodLab Detroit

    The Afros + Knives Miniseries: Devita Davison of FoodLab Detroit

    “When I think about the movements that Black women have given us and have sustained just in this generation, I have to wonder why is it that people don’t listen to and follow Black women?” asked FoodLab Detroit Executive Director Devita Davison, citing Black Lives Matter, Black Girl Magic, Free Our Girls, Say Her Name, Me Too, misogynoir, self-care, and intersectionality.

    Devita joins host Tiffani Rozier for the final episode of the Afros + Knives miniseries. Tune in to hear Devita discuss her life as a first-generation Detroiter, how Hurricane Sandy inspired her to return to her roots, and her work at the Food Lab, where a community of local culinary entrepreneurs is committed to dismantling racism within the food system. “For me, it is more important for our work to be guided by the voices of the people whose bodies sit at the intersection of oppression,” says Devita. “When those bodies become free, we all become free.”

    The Afros + Knives Miniseries: Qiana Mickie of Just Food

    The Afros + Knives Miniseries: Qiana Mickie of Just Food

    “Food became more and more a revolutionary tool, opposed to what I just put in my body,” says activist Qiana Mickie, the special projects consultant for Just Food, the New York City-based pioneering food justice organization focused on community-driven solutions to inequities in the system. Qiana, who was most recently executive director of the organization, views food as a driver of enterprise, innovation, and equity, and she’s made it her mission to empower community members of color to lead these charges in the food community. Qiana joins Chef Tiffani Rozier, the host of the Afros + Knives podcast, to discuss the thinking behind her leadership transition, building safe and constructive workplaces for people of color—especially women, and ways in which white supremacy can impact the food justice space.

    You can find Qiana on Instagram @ragamickie. Host Tiffani Rozier can be found at @cheftiffanirozier and @afrosandknives. Be sure to subscribe to and support Afros + Knives wherever you listen to podcasts!

    From the Kitchen to Congress with Dirt Candy’s Amanda Cohen

    “I’ve been incredibly surprised by where my career has taken me,” says Amanda Cohen, chef/owner of the vegetable-focused Dirt Candy restaurant in New York City. “I never would have expected it would take me to Congress.” Earlier this week, Amanda testified before the Small Business Committee of the House of Representatives on behalf of the Independent Restaurant Coalition. Amanda is part of the leadership of the IRC, which is working to get Congress to pass the $120-billion Independent Restaurant Revitalization Fund. We talk to Amanda about her work on behalf of the 500,000 independent restaurants and 11 million restaurant workers in the U.S., as well as the steps she’s taking to keep her own restaurant alive. She also updates us on Lekka Burger, the Tribeca fast-casual spot she’s involved with, her thoughts on food media, and why she’s not moving back to her native Canada any time soon.
