A Kitchen In Uganda

A music festival courts coronavirus, Sophie Musoki takes us to "A Kitchen in Uganda" and the Georgian language perfectly sums up our quarantine snacking habits.

First Stop

On June 6, The Independent reported that a three-day “Herd Immunity Festival” was scheduled for 16-18 July in Ringle, Wisconsin. The festival said nothing about social distancing or coronavirus risks. And the name made people assume that planners were deliberately courting the disease.

Public opinion was divided, but the debate actually changed things. The band Nonpoint dropped out, the name was changed and organizers will now only sell 20% of the 10,000 tickets, which makes the outdoor event a little less risky.

What risks are you comfortable taking?

Are you traveling for concerts or for other outdoor events like we did? Why or why not?

Next Stop:

Alicia talked with food writer and photographer Sophie Musoki, the creator of A Kitchen in Uganda on Instagram and author of My Vegetarian Kitchen: 34 Delicious and Wholesome Dishes from A Kitchen in Uganda, which is available as a super affordable eBook. The discussion started with indigenous produce and quickly moved into the way that food reflects our traditions, history, aspirations and migrations.

In addition to Sophie's book, we also discussed The Gefilte Manifesto, United Cakes of America and The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen in this episode.

In what ways have you examined the traditional food of your own region and history?

How did you learn to prepare food?

How has the pandemic changed the way you cook?

What cookbooks and recipes to you keep going back to?

To keep eating, even though you’re full

Yikes. We feel called out.

Seriously though, who isn't doing this right now?

What are you eating these days?
