HeritageRadioNetwork.org (HRN) presents “Evolutionaries,” a new radio documentary series featuring the stories behind the stories of individuals who defied conventions and shaped our food landscape. Tune in to hear from personalities who made their mark on our collective food culture, sharing experiences in their own words. Eric Ripert recounts club nights at 6AM. Steve Jenkins reminisces about secretly selling illegal cheeses. Harold McGee recalls how the smell of his mother’s curry sauces clung to his clothes during the school day. “Evolutionaries” is your chance to hear these food visionaries unguarded and unchained from the conventional food media format.
