On yesterday’s Leonard Lopate show on WNYC was a segment about a new book , “Deeply Rooted: Unconventional Farmers in the Age of Agribusiness“. Promo line for the segment…
A century of industrialization has created a food system riddled with problems, yet we look to nutritionists and government agencies, scientists and chefs for solutions, instead of looking to the people who grow our food. Lisa M. Hamilton profiles three unconventional farmers in her new book . She will also be joined by Teresa Podoll, one of the independent farmers she spoke with in her book.
Also, WNYC started a weekly series earlier in the month. Tune into the Food in the City Series to hear chefs and writers discuss shopping, cooking, and most important –EATING!. Online you can listen to podcasts and watch videos of the guests as they take listeners to kitchens, markets, and restaurants.
Lots of yummy listening. Enjoy!
