    Marion Nestle Talks Food Politics And Her New Memoir, “Slow Cooked”

    Marion Nestle Talks Food Politics And Her New Memoir, “Slow Cooked”

    Professor, author, and food marketing watchdog Marion Nestle was a late bloomer. As she explains, she didn’t make her mark professionally until her groundbreaking book “Food Politics” was published in 2002. Marion was 66. “That’s kind of late to get started,” she tells host Kerry Diamond. In Marion’s new memoir, “Slow Cooked: An Unexpected Life In Food Politics,” she looks at the societal and familial forces—and the personal hang-ups—that stood in her way.

    Don’t miss this revealing conversation with one of the most inspiring individuals in the food world. Marion also talks about the NYU food studies program she helped launch, the food policy changes she would make if she were President, and the reasons she finally decided to write a memoir.

    Molly Yeh Of “Girl Meets Farm” On Her New Book And Restaurant

    Molly Yeh Of “Girl Meets Farm” On Her New Book And Restaurant

    Molly Yeh has come a long way since starting her blog, My Name Is Yeh. She moved to Minnesota, got married, became a mom, and filmed 12 seasons of her Food Network show, "Girl Meets Farm." She’s also penned two cookbooks, including her latest, "Home Is Where The Eggs Are," a heartfelt and often humorous look at her life and the recipes she creates.

    Molly’s grand adventure continues with Bernie’s, a restaurant that she and her husband are opening in a historic spot in East Grand Forks, Minnesota. Bernie’s will feature Molly’s favorite baked goods, local produce, and the kind of Midwestern classics you can’t find in restaurants, like cookie salad.

    Molly chats with host Kerry Diamond about her reasons for wanting to open a restaurant, the inspiration behind her new book, and her favorite foods—from power bagels to granola bars to halva.

    Priyanka Chopra Jonas And Maneesh Goyal, Hospitality’s New Dynamic Duo

    Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Maneesh Goyal are on a mission to share the rich culture, cuisine, and hospitality of India with everyone they can. Priyanka, the groundbreaking actor and UNICEF ambassador, and Maneesh, an entrepreneur and Planned Parenthood board member, joined forces last year to open Sona, a pan-Indian restaurant in New York City, but they didn’t stop there. They recently launched Sona Home, a companion luxury brand that features tabletop items and housewares.

    The two friends sat down with host Kerry Diamond to talk about Sona, Sona Home, and the intention behind each brand. Priyanka also shares a few stories about her teenage years in Iowa, while Maneesh takes us back to 1979 and the opening of his father’s restaurant, which was the very first Indian restaurant in Texas. They also help us navigate the Sona menu and reveal their must-order items.

    Recorded by Eric Sheppard on location at Sona Restaurant in Manhattan. Radio Cherry Bombe is supported by Whole Foods and Anjali’s Cup. Discover what’s local and special at the Whole Foods nearest you.

    Danielle Walker, Cookbook Author And Health Eating Advocate

    Danielle Walker, Cookbook Author And Health Eating Advocate

    When Danielle Walker was 22 years old and a newlywed, she was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. The autoimmune disease was debilitating, and Danielle wasn’t sure she’d achieve any of the goals or dreams she had set for herself, from having a family to working in publishing or P.R. A medical emergency abroad helped her realize there could be a connection between her illness and diet, and so began a long journey toward healing herself and helping countless people through her cookbooks, classes, and community. Her latest and fifth book, Healthy In A Hurry, is the perfect guide for those time-pressed but in search of solutions for eating well.

    Danielle joins host Kerry Diamond to talk about Healthy In A Hurry and how her life and outlook have changed from those early days.
