    World’s Biggest Family Meal: Massimo & Lara’s Playlist (Live)

    World’s Biggest Family Meal: Massimo & Lara’s Playlist (Live)

    This special episode is a live recording of the World's Biggest Family Meal, a global hospitality gathering supporting the food industry. We joined WBFM’s founder and host, Leiti Hsu, in a lively conversation with Lara Gilmore and Chef Massimo Bottura about music, food and the couple’s important work with their Food for Soul project. Food for Soul is currently building Refettorio Harlem, and we encourage you to please lend your support to the cause.

    For the musical portion of this episode we tap into our archives. We originally had DRAMA on the show back in the summer of 2018. The Chicago R&B / dance duo composed of producer Na’el Shehade and vocalist Via Rosa regaled us with stories of how they collaborate on both making music and building restaurants. (Via’s a chef and Na’el is a restaurateur.) DRAMA recently dropped a new single with Gorgon City called “You’ve Done Enough.”

    Rashida Holmes + Midnight Magic

    Rashida Holmes + Midnight Magic

    Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our friend Jason Disu. We met Jason through Midnight Magic. He was an immensely talented musician, and just an incredible human being. He will be missed. We’re dedicating this show to him with an archived performance from Midnight Magic in our second half.

    We open the show with Chef Rashida Holmes of Los Angeles’ acclaimed Bridgetown Roti. Rashida was a restaurant sous chef before the pandemic devastated the hospitality industry. Needing a pivot, she dug into her Bajan roots and launched Bridgetown Roti, which serves a variety of Caribbean dishes inspired by Rashida’s family.

    William Bradley + Moira Smiley

    William Bradley + Moira Smiley

    William Bradley is an icon of Southern California dining. His restaurant Addison is San Diego’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, and since 2006 it’s been wowing guests with its elegant degustation menus, high touch service and epic end-of-meal cheese cart. Like many chefs enduring the pandemic, William’s had to repeatedly close and reopen, pivot to takeout and devise a whole new plan for outdoor dining, but fortunately, he and Addison are still standing and still serving.

    Our musical guest, singer and composer Moira Smiley, has performed all over the world alongside the likes of Tune-Yards and SOLAS. Moira’s also renowned for her choral arrangements and compositions with work that can be heard on feature film soundtracks, TV programs, radio and on more than 70 commercial albums. Her vocal group, moira smiley & VOCO just recently dropped the new album, In Our Voices, and she stops by to give us a live listen.

    Noble Rot & Landlady

    Noble Rot & Landlady

    Noble Rot magazine hit shelves in 2013, and nothing has been the same in the world of wine writing ever since. Irreverent, informative and just good fun, amongst Noble Rot’s pages the boundaries between gastronomy and the creative arts often melt away, and you’ll find stories like a compare-and-contrast tasting of French and California wines with Brian Eno. Dan Keeling, the magazine’s co-founder, joins us for the first half of the show to share with us Noble Rot’s new book, Wine from Another Galaxy, an all-encompassing guide to all things wine.

    Brooklyn songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Schatz is an active member of Man Man and Father Figures, and has also recorded with Vampire Weekend and Those Darlins. In 2011 he started the solo project Landlady, and has since released three full-length albums. There’s a new Landlady album on the way, and Adam stopped by to play us some songs.

Brain Food

A really excellent intertwining of the history of food with music, but also culture, how spaces and systems and the people who make them up change over time - really informative and just tons of delightful asides and nuggets of wisdom and weird facts. It’s weird and great and insightful - great guest gets too!
