Amazing!!!!

The range and quality of helpful information on these podcasts is amazing! I learn so much from each and every guest and of course from Dina. I can’t say enough positive things about Dish With Dina.

Guest and Listener ,

Intriguing Food Stories

Listening to the personal food histories of the culturally and professionally diverse array of people that Dina thoughtfully interviews in each episode takes you out of the calorie-counting mindset and into a whole new way of thinking about food and health. Dina’s personality, questions, and insights make me feel as though I’m in the middle of a great conversation. Two thumbs up as both a listener and as a guest!
