Time For Lunch

Heritage Radio Network

Time For Lunch is a place to learn about eating, cooking, enjoying and sometimes playing with your food. Each episode will cover a new subject; taking a close look at one item, or ingredient, that might be found at the lunch table. Listeners are invited to participate, sharing jokes on-air or following along with in-episode quizzes and games. Hosted by Harry Rosenblum and Hannah Fordin, the show looks at food through the lens of history, culture, and play to celebrate and learn about the people and places that feed us. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council. read less

Eat Your Greens!

Eat Your Greens!
We asked Adrian Miller (A.K.A. The Soul Food Scholar) what is the most important and iconic soul food dish and his answer was: greens! Delicious, nutritious, and deeply steeped in history, we all agree that you’ve got to eat your greens. In addition to coming back to a conversation with Adrian Miller, Hannah and Harry are lucky enough to bring back one of our most beloved guests; Germaine Jenkins of Fresh Future Farm. As we look back on Black History Month it’s a great time to reflect and celebrate the many cultures and cuisines that our friends and neighbors of African descent can share. However, one month a year is truly not enough time to learn about and honor Black culture in America. So regardless of the time of year, let’s remember to be curious and open about our own history and the stories of folks around us. Stay tuned as we have another episode celebrating Black History Month coming up soon! If you’d like to hear your voice on the show, ask a grownup to help you record yourself using the voice memo app on an iPhone and email your questions, jokes, and recipes to timeforlunchpodcast@gmail.com. Heritage Radio Network is a listener supported nonprofit podcast network, support Time For Lunch by becoming a member!Find us on Instagram @timeforlunchpodcast!For our dance break this episode, we used the beautiful version of the song Morrisson's jig - Leslie's march by Aislinn.
