The word ‘hipster’ is such a nebulous term, but it is often applied to young millennial foodies. Welcome to “Is It Real? Hipster Dining Revolution” – a conversation about DIY food culture and the people who make up the food scene. Tune into this segment to hear from Leiti Hsu, The Roving Gastronome. How does Leiti define a ‘hipster’, and how have these types altered the food landscape for diners? Hear from Shiraz Noor of Williamsburg’s Aska. Find out why Shiraz has trouble labeling groups of people, and problems with generalizations and exclusivity. We want to hear from you; let us know how you feel about hipster dining culture! This program has been brought to you by Hearst Ranch. Thanks to Archie Pelago for today’s music.

“There are fewer questions about what ingredients are being used, and more questions about where the ingredients came from.” [4:55]
