Ep. 5: Longing, with Ariel Barnes
While wandering through the aisles of a local supermarket, Ariel Barnes revisits her childhood memories of school lunch and the politics of the food we eat as children. She remembers the neatly packed lunches that her mother used to pack her and the loving notes left in her lunchbox. And then she remembers the day these lunches and notes suddenly disappeared. Take a walk with us down memory lane as we explore with Ariel the power of food as an expression of love, loss and longing.

Ep. 3: Yearning, with Szeki Chan
This episode is part 1 of a 2 part series on tomato and egg, a classic homestyle dish that has come to represent so much for children of Chinese immigrants. When Szeki Chan first moved to New York City from Hong Kong as a college student, she left behind her family and life as she knew it. While it’s been over a decade since she left Hong Kong, Szeki still yearns for her mother's cooking and the comfort it brings. Now raising her own family in her adopted homeland, we visit Szeki in her East Village apartment to cook her mother’s humble stir-fried tomato and egg, the dish that still tastes like home.

Ep. 2: Passion, with EunYoung Sebazco
In this episode, we learn about the power that the humble grain of rice has in opening up larger conversations. We travel to Randall’s Island Park to visit horticulturist and rice pioneer EunYoung Sebazco whose passion for rice led her to create one of the only known rice paddies in New York City. We learn about her journey in creating the rice paddies—how she managed to do so in an urban setting using a single book and her grandmother’s wisdom—as well as the unexpected discovery about her own family that she stumbled upon along the way.

Ep. 1: Preservation, with Katia Kelly
When Katia Kelly inherits a sacred family heirloom - her mother’s recipe book filled with hand-written recipes and notes - it opens up a discussion about the important role home cooking plays in helping preserve one’s history and culture. Over a pot of English breakfast tea, we discuss Katia’s journey from Germany to France and then the United States, where she eventually settles in the sleepy neighborhood of Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn, New York. From condensed milk to linzer torte, we learn about the way recipes can represent a progression of our lives. Katia teaches us that no matter how much changes in the world around us, we can always stay connected to our memories and life experiences through the simple act of cooking.
