Coming into the holiday season, we at the Dead Hare Radio Hour were asking ourselves what we valued most about this time of year. Family visits? Stockings hung by a fire? Presents under the tree? Mistletoe? This was something we had to think about for a little while as there are so many good and bad things revolving around us at the moment. But, if we had to pick one, the consensus would be food. With waist bands growing and New Years resolutions not too far off, we thought what better than think about the role of food in the arts and as a part of culture.
We caught up with the editor of Edible Hudson Valley, Eric Steinman. Who gives us a smattering of treats about food in the Hudson Valley and broader culture. Then we spoke with Tracy Candido. Provocateur of food centered art projects such as Sweet Tooth of the Tiger and the Community Cooking Club.
