Cake, Intimacy & an Asian-American Experience with Coral Lee
This episode features Coral Lee, Food52 Podcast Network’s Producer. For this conversation, she is on the other side of the mic sharing a deeply personal story of the cake that encapsulates her grandmother’s communal table. Coral explores the nature of intimacy, her hyphenated identity as an Asian-American, as well as the complicated relationship that she has with her parents.
