Description

Meant to be Eaten looks at cross-cultural exchange in food and contemporary media. What determines “authenticity”? What, if anything, gets lost in translation when cooking foods from another’s culture? First-generation Chinese host, Coral Lee, looks at how American culture figures forth in less-than mainstream ways, in less-than expected places.

A conversation with Amanda Hesser. Amanda Hesser is CEO and co-founder of food, home, and lifestyle brand, Food52. Now in its 10th year, Food52 has evolved wildly from the recipe-sharing site it used to solely be, and recently closed a very large funding round (which we’ll get to in a bit). Amanda and I will be picking up where UK food writer Sybil Kapoor and I left off last week. We discussed what “taste” means, how it is biologically, culturally, and socially constructed, and why it’s important to continually challenge our own… and today, we’ll be exploring how “taste” is determined in our -- supposedly-- algorithmically-optimized worlds, if our unique “taste” is indeed our own, and whether SEO-driven content hurts or helps us.Meant to be Eaten is powered by Simplecast.  
A conversation with Sybil Kapoor. UK food writer Sybil Kapoor’s recently released book, “Sight Smell Touch Taste Sound”, builds on “Taste”, published 16 years ago. In both, she presents cooking as a sensory practice, one that does not require great skill, knowledge, or willingness to follow a recipe...Only a willingness to engage and think critically with all five of our senses. We discuss the concept of “taste”, whether it is truly our own or constructed, and if it is possible to alter.Join Heritage Radio Network on Monday, November 11th, for a raucous feast to toast a decade of food radio.

What makes good food, good? PhD students at SOAS University of London Francesca Vaghi and Brandi Miller join Coral to discuss why ""good"" food is often contigent on nutritional, economic, political, or moral conditions, and why the distinction changes across cultures and scale.Francesca is a final year doctoral researcher based at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London, and the Thomas Coram Research Unit. Prior to starting her PhD, she was awarded an MPhil in Medical Anthropology from the University of Oxford in 2015. Her project, ‘Food, policy, and practice in early years education and care: children, parents, and practitioners in a London nursery,’ spans a variety of areas, mainly: medical anthropology, the anthropology of food, childhood studies, gender, and class. Francesca's doctoral research was conducted in an inner-London nursery and children's centre over a 12-month period. As well as investigating the ways in which children create their self and peer identities through food and eating practices, her work explores how children's food policy fits into family intervention policies more broadly, as well as how notions of 'good food' and 'good parenting' (particularly 'mothering') are interlinked.Brandi Simpson Miller holds an MA in World History from Georgia State University (2015). She is a doctoral researcher at the Department of History at the School of Oriental and African Studies London. Her research interests include the study of the social history of Ghana, particularly the political aspects of global and local food practices from the precolonial period to Ghanaian independence.Meant To Be Eaten is powered by Simplecast.
