February 10, 2014
On the latest episode of Taste Matters, food systems consultant and Karp Resources founder Karen Karp appears as guest host, interviewing Monica Gelinas from GritWork. As GritWork's principal and founder, Monica works to transform high-growth natural food concepts into soulful operations through strategic integrity sourcing and sustainable supply chain frameworks. The two reflect on their collaborative experience bringing England's Pret A Manger to the U.S. in 1999, and Monica talks about some of the biggest challenges in both industrial food production and providing year-round fresh, seasonal produce in New York City.

Taste Matters is a radio program dedicated to taste: as a sense, cultural construct, and culinary phenomenon. However much we talk about where our food comes from, how it’s produced, who prepares it, or what sorts of socio-cultural-political implications our food choices and eating behaviors have, taste is fundamental.
You can catch Taste Matters with Mitchell Davis live every Wednesday at 11:00 A.M. on Heritage Radio Network, or listen to the show afterwards right here on our blog. To check out past episodes, click here. Stay tuned for more!
