On the newest edition of Sound Bites we bring you two fascinating conversations around creative food gathering, preparing, and eating. First we talk with writer and forager Ava Chin, who joins us to talk about her memoir Eating Wildly: Foraging for Life, Love, and the Perfect Meal. Chin is the former “Urban Forager” columnist for The New York Times’ City Room, and The Huffington Postnamed her one of “9 Contemporary Authors You Should Be Reading.”
We finish out the show with chef and food justice activist Bryant Terry, who will tell us about his newest book Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed. Terry,who lives in Oakland, CA, is the host of Urban Organic, a multi-episode web series that he co-created, and he has also written four books, including the critically acclaimed Vegan Soul Kitchen and Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen, which he co-authored with Anna Lappe.
