This week on Taste Matters, host Mitchell Davis spoke with Raj Patel, the award-winning writer, activist, and author of Stuffed and Starved and The Value of Nothing. They discussed his new multimedia project, Generation Food, which documents how ordinary women and men around the world are enacting food-system change and "setting the table" for themselves, their communities, and future citizens. Listen below to learn more about Raj’s travels, experiences with global food insecurity, and his proposed solutions to these grave problems.
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!
