For our 60th episode, Soleil speaks with the inspiring Julia Turshen, author of “Now & Again,” about how cookbooks can be an effective vehicle for social and political conversations. They also talk about Turshen’s work forging supportive communities as the founder of Equity at the Table (EATT). But first, Soleil and Zahir reunite! They haven’t hosted an episode together since August, and they have a lot to catch up on: Samin Nosrat’s new Netflix hit, changes to James Beard Awards submissions and a Puerto Rican Christmas dinner at the Beard House.
Produced by Stephanie Kuo. Music by AF the Naysayer and Blue Dot Sessions.
