On today’s show we welcome the bright burst of light that is Ella Laviolette. Ella is an artist, a cook, a service industry veteran and a professional dominatrix. She grew up on the Lower East Side of NYC, and was raised in a food centric Hatian family. We talk about Hatian cuisine, being raised without a mother and the similarities between sex work and therapy. Ella is a magical person, and we were honored to chat with her. Please enjoy💛

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.
