The latest episode of our Facebook Live talk show sees co-hosts Dan Clapson and Mairlyn Smith delving deep into discussions with panelists Deepi Harish and Carmen Cheng surrounding the global anti-racism movements as well as Bon Appétit magazine's recent fall from grace--a lot of food for thought for everyone in the food media and food community during this exchange.
Eat North Variety Pack's first guest for the episode is Toronto chef, activist and author of Take Back The Tray, Joshna Maharaj. Joshna discusses how broken Canada's institutional food system is, what she is striving for with her new book and how she remains ever-hopeful for change.
Next, Vancouver's Justin Tisdall, of Juke Fried Chicken and Beetbox, shares his experiences of being a POC restaurateur and how he promotes community and diversity through his workplaces and in the Vancouver food scene in general.
Singer Amy Hef wraps things up with a chat about Pride season and a performance of her latest single "Find My Way Home".
