    Hawa Hassan // In Bibi's Kitchen

    Hawa Hassan // In Bibi's Kitchen

    This week, we're excited to welcome Hawa Hassan to Salt + Spine, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks.


    Hawa is the founder and CEO of Basbaas Sauce, a selection of condiments that are inspired by Somalia, the country where she was born. Hawa left Somalia with her family in the midst of the country’s civil war: first to a refugee camp and then to the U.S. She built a life in America, including a modeling career, and 15 years later, she reunited with her family for the first time. Through it all was food — the family foods she remembers from her childhood, the 7/11 snacks she’d pick up in Seattle, the dinner parties she’d host in New York City.


    And now, her first cookbook. Hawa joined us to talk about her first cookbook, In Bibi’s Kitchen: The Recipes and Stories of Grandmothers from the Eight African Countries that Touch the Indian Ocean. Co-authored with Salt + Spine friend Julia Turshen, the book introduces us to bibis (grandmother in Swahili) up and down the East African coast — from Somalia to Kenya to Mozambique to Madagascar. You’ll find heartwarming interviews with bibis from these eight countries and learn about the culinary histories of their families and their countries. And of course, recipes: 75 dishes that are both enticing and full of meaning. Hawa writes, “This isn’t just any old book with fun ideas of what to make for dinner (though you should make the recipes—they’re great!). It’s also a collection of stories about war, loss, migration, refuge, and sanctuary. It’s a book about families and their connections to home.”


    There are few cookbooks by major publishers today that focus on African cuisine — a glaring hole in the industry we discuss in this episode — and it’s powerful and inspiring to see these stories and recipes captured in In Bibi’s Kitchen. Hawa joined us remotely to talk about her life and career, creating this new book, and more. And of course, we’re playing a culinary game with Hawa — and we have featured recipes from In Bibi’s Kitchen for you to try at home.

    Kristina Gill // Tasting Rome

    Kristina Gill is the co-author of Tasting Rome: Fresh Flavors and Forgotten Recipes from an Ancient City. A native of Nashville, Kristina relocated to Rome in 1999. Kristina joined us remotely from, of course, Rome, to talk about the role food has played in her life, how she approaches her work, and where she turns for inspiration. Plus, of course, we’re playing a game and putting Kristina to the culinary test.

    A New Generation of Food Writers and Chefs on What the Future Holds

    A New Generation of Food Writers and Chefs on What the Future Holds

    In the final installment of our Food Media Awakening Series—and the beginning of our fall 2020 season—we're talking with teenage food professionals about what drew them to food and food writing and what they see for the food media and restaurant industries as their generation enters the workforce. Oakland-based Rahanna Bisseret Martinez shares her perspective on restaurant kitchens, New York City's Food and Finance High School student Michael Stanton discusses their junior class project and telling the stories of trailblazing people of color in food, and cookbook author and activist Haile Thomas talks about what drew her to wellness, a vegan diet, and advocacy.

    The Importance of Non-White Led Food Media

    The Importance of Non-White Led Food Media

    In Part 3 of our Food Media Awakening Series, we're talking all about food media: specifically, food media that is not owned or led by white people. With power and editorial control largely in the hands of white people at "mainstream" food media outlets, we're talking with editors, publishers, and writers about the importance of having and investing in Black- and POC-led food media. Food writer and cookbook author Klancy Miller joins to discuss her forthcoming magazine, For The Culture, which tells the stories of Black women in food and wine by Black female writers, photographers, and illustrators. Editors Sheree Williams of Cuisine Noir and Rochelle Oliver of Island & Spice discuss their work and editorial processes. And we hear analysis from Jamila Robinson, food editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer and chair of the James Beard Awards' journalism committee, and food writer Osayi Endolyn.
