On this episode of Let's Eat In, Cathy Erway talks with Bryant Terry, food justice advocate and author of books such as The Inspired Vegan and Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen. Tune in to hear how Memphis barbecue influenced Bryant's vegan cooking, how raising a child has made him think about eating, and the problems associated with labeling certain neighborhoods as "food deserts". Listen to Bryant's ideas about the place of Afro-diasporan food in a culinary landscape, and how food, art, and culture inevitably intersect. Also, hear Bryant reminisce about his past living in Fort Greene and participating in the Park Slope Food Coop! This episode has been brought to you by Hearst Ranch.

"We don't eat in a void. I think one thing about our industrial food system is that it puts food on one side and creates this huge chasm where art, culture, and community are way on the other side." --Bryant Terry on Let's Eat In
