    S4 E1: Naciye Akgun of Sofra Cafe

    We kick off Season 4, presented by Visit Bloomington, with Naciye Akgun of Sofra Cafe. Her passion for food left me speechless and her story blew me away. Learn about how everything at Sofra is made from scratch with love, when she knew Bloomington was where she was meant to be, what her experiences were like in Turkey, and of course, how she ranks pancakes, waffles, and french toast.

    The Big Heart in Little Tibet

    The Big Heart in Little Tibet

    Every now and then, while you go through life, you’ll have a conversation that really makes you step back, reassess your outlook on everything, and make you feel incredibly for grateful for what you have.
     
    That’s exactly what happened when I had the pleasure of sitting down with Pema Wangchen, Owner of Bloomington treasure, Little Tibet.
     
    Listening to what he’s been through and appreciating what a great human he is will definitely make you appreciate your yellow curry, among many other things, that much more your next time through.

    Eating and Drinking (Ink) Well w/ Wally

    An immigrant from Burkina Faso, Oulelaye Ouedrago, more affectionately known as Wally, brought a whole new perspective to the No Dishes studio we haven't heard before. He has such a infectious likability to pair with knowledge of all things coffee which made for such a great sit down. Hear about his time in Africa, New York, Uptown Cafe, Inkwell, and all places in between on the newest episode of No Dishes with Jordan Davis.

Thank You!

So Phyllis called me and told me to listen - and I am damned glad I did! Thanks for doing this guys - and Jordan for warming my heart hundreds of miles away. Hearing some of these voices and stories is so great having put roughly 12 years of time into Bloomington’s Industry and I miss it dearly. Keep Crushing’!
