Lopate and Locavores: Eating Around the World

Leonard Lopate's Popular Food Series Returns Oct 7, 14 and 21

Wednesday, October 07, 2015

Lopate and Locavores: Marcus Samuelsson, Madhur Jaffrey and Maangchi (Sahar Baharloo)

Going out to a restaurant can be a way of traveling around the world without setting foot on a plane. But do you ever get the feeling that, even here in New York where we have access to every cuisine imaginable, they're only serving up Americanized versions of what you’d find abroad? 

This October, Lopate and Locavores invites international culinary experts to share the authentic dishes from their countries that you wouldn't find in a restaurant.

Join us for three special nights of culinary conversation and cooking demonstrations hosted by WNYC's James Beard Award-winning host Leonard Lopate.

I'm a big fan of Leonard's. I love Marcus Samuelsson, but you cannot bill this event as Mr. Samuelsson presenting "Afrcian food." There are nearly 50 countries in Africa, all with highly distinct cuisines, even within a country. Could you find a way to express this more intelligently? It's highly insulting to this South African and I'm sure to your many African listeners (Ghanaian, Nigerian, Kenyan) who make up your audience and are wondering 'What on earth is 'African food'?" Samuelsson's roots are Ethiopian. Either specify that or reword your title. This is 2015, not 1815.
