Food Culture. For the culture.
One conversation at a time.
Midwest Food History: A Conversation With Author Robin Caldwell
It's the inaugural episode of Dawson Eats America: The Podcast and it's a good one, broadcasting from St. Louis, Missouri, where we chopped it up with food author/historian Robin Caldwell about food history in the Midwest. Peep the conversation below.
This week we explore one of my favorite cities, NEW ORLEANS, by paying tribute to an American icon, Chef Leah Chase, the Queen of Creole Cuisine. Plus, a conversation with Vernon Martin III of Exquisite Kreations Catering, one of NOLA's up and coming private chefs.
Where It All Vegan
After realizing just how uninformed I am when it comes to the V word, VEGANISM, I call on three friends--Blythe Robinson, Jameka Shamae, and Chef Joya--to discuss their vegan journeys. This week, we get an education. Grab your pencils. Class is in session.
Finding Peace in The Chaos
This week is all about culture. And tradition. We pay deep tribute to the icon TONI MORRISON, submit our first book review of one of our favorite novels of the year, and learn about the GULLAH GEECHEE culture with Chef AMETHYST GANAWAY of Charleston, South Carolina.
Father's Day is this Sunday and this week, through verse and conversation, my family shares memories of my dad, Albert Oscar Dawson, Sr. Plus, close friends recall their favorite father food memories. It's a very special Dawson Eats America: The Dad Tribute.
On this edition of Dawson Eats America: The Podcast, we take a walking tour through the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, stopping to chat with Chefs Naomi Knox, Ashley Nightengale, Whitney Thomas and Michael Bowling to find out what happens when cuisine experts ply their craft in the Queen City.
On this episode, we're back in the Midwest, this time in St. Louis getting to know native son and rib rub master Revr'n Ray. We also catch up with one of our faves, author Robin Caldwell, as she shares more stories and tales from the Lou.
The "Other" 1%:
An American Black Farmer Story
It's 2019, and Black farmers make up only 1.3% of all farmers in America. This week we head to Reedville, Virginia to speak with PJ Haynie III, a fifth generation farmer working to keep his people, and profession, on the map.
The Earth Knows What To Do
When you think of gardening, your first thought probably isn't urban Chicago. Well, this week we're headed to the Chi to speak with two Black women who are helping to change the face of urban gardening... one community at a time.
