In this episode, Saveur editor-in-chief Stacy Adimando joins host Lisa Held to talk about the magazine’s recently released “Grower’s Issue,” which features stories of the intricacies of hop farming in San Diego, how India’s saffron farmers are suffering during a multi-year drought, and how sheep farming could revive rural regions of the US that once relied on coal mining. According to Adimando’s Editor’s Note, “When you look at the world farmer-first, you’ll find a story behind every bite.”
