Since the first coronavirus infections hit the US in January, the nation has changed dramatically. Stores and restaurants closed as students and employees transitioned into remote work. We are shut inside, wear masks and stand six-feet apart when at the store. This is the new normal – at least for now. This week we will dive deep into a world of change, from preparing for a post-pandemic future and the evolving habits of composters, to learning from history to make way for a better future.
We hear from Stephen Satterfield, co-founder of Whetstone Magazine. Bryce Buyakie reports on how two restaurants from two different states are preparing to reopen. Will Hartman learns about the benefits of composting and how quarantine has changed the way people recycle food waste. Kevin Chang Barnum takes us to California where an antiquarian gastronomy bookseller has experienced customers’ newfound interest in food writing up to seven centuries old. Finally, A Taste of The Past host Linda Pelaccio explores the history of soup kitchens.
In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
