    #73 - Saving food... from what?

    A conversation with Daniel Bender. We’re all very concerned with saving food–from preservation to curation to nostalgia to archiving to salvation– but Daniel Bender, an editor of leading food studies journal, Gastronomica, and history professor at the University of Toronto Scarborough—took a step back to ask, “what exactly are we saving food from?”

    #72 - Taste, algorithmically constructed

    A conversation with Amanda Hesser. Amanda Hesser is CEO and co-founder of food, home, and lifestyle brand, Food52. Now in its 10th year, Food52 has evolved wildly from the recipe-sharing site it used to solely be, and recently closed a very large funding round (which we’ll get to in a bit). Amanda and I will be picking up where UK food writer Sybil Kapoor and I left off last week. We discussed what “taste” means, how it is biologically, culturally, and socially constructed, and why it’s important to continually challenge our own… and today, we’ll be exploring how “taste” is determined in our -- supposedly-- algorithmically-optimized worlds, if our unique “taste” is indeed our own, and whether SEO-driven content hurts or helps us.

    #71 - Taste: biologically, culturally, socially constructed

    A conversation with Sybil Kapoor. UK food writer Sybil Kapoor’s recently released book, “Sight Smell Touch Taste Sound”, builds on “Taste”, published 16 years ago. In both, she presents cooking as a sensory practice, one that does not require great skill, knowledge, or willingness to follow a recipe...Only a willingness to engage and think critically with all five of our senses. We discuss the concept of “taste”, whether it is truly our own or constructed, and if it is possible to alter.

    A conversation with Mukta Das.

    Following her studies of both Chinese and Indian history at SOAS, Mukta Das’s research interests have continued to exist at this intersection of South and East Asian cuisine and culture. Mukta has been following a group of South Asians who have adopted Cantonese cities and culinary identities– and we’re here to talk about the complexities of “heritage making” as an outsider, in a country whose identity is now split.

    A conversation with Kristin and Mark Kimball.

    Kristin and Mark Kimball are the owners of Essex Farm. Located in Essex, NY, the farm offers members unlimited access to produce, meat, dairy, eggs, and dried goods year-round. We’ll be discussing the realities of running the world’s first full-diet, free-choice CSA, Kristin’s latest memoir, Good Husbandry, and why there exists such a disconnect between producer and consumer... and what we can do to close that gap.
