 1 person rated this episode
Von Diaz, the author of Coconuts and Collards: Recipes and Stories from Puerto Rico to the Deep South, and her mother, Yvonne Webb join Julia for a personal conversation about the experience of creating the book and life after its publication. The takeaway? In Yvonne's words: "you can't change what you don't acknowledge."

The conversation centers on the act of writing down history and talking about it and being honest about it, and how doing that can both cement and advance relationships.

There are also answers to listeners' questions and a shoutout to FoodLab Detroit (find out more about the organization here). To purchase the copy of Whetsone Magazine that includes the interview between Von and Yvonne that inspired this episode, head here.
