Recently on Real Talk, Samin Nosrat (author of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat) sat down with award winning authors, Osayi Endolyn and Yewande Komolafe for an open and raw discussion on what it means to be a woman of color in the food industry, as well as the world as a whole.
The talk began with a simple question, “How are you?” A question so simple and capable of insight and vulnerability.
“I think this is an opportunity where we’re all being cracked open,” Osayi states. “I’m really hopeful that we continue to press down on these systems that have been so poorly designed to nurture and respect people.”
This is a moment when the world should be listening and letting other voices rise above and with this episode of Real Talk, we hope to amplify some of these.
“I can’t tell you what it looks like in five to ten years,” Yewande states. “But I can tell you what I’m here for. I’m here for a more sustainable industry. Sustainable not just in the way that it applies to food, but how it applies to labor, how it applies to people.”
Watch the full episode and hear from the women who inspire, motivate, and succeed in a frayed system. 👇
