Valentine would like to have some part of the video with Noriah (although be careful to not include the parts where my questions are really loud!). This is my favorite part here
And there are some other clips that I think are fantastic:
Laverne Henderson has a wonderful opening for the part on greens (and frankly, so many wonderful parts, but I know you don't have all night!): here
Vivian Mims's greens finishing here and a clip on pot liquor here
This is a tricky one of Karyssa Jackson (10 wonderful seconds)! you may need to click here, or click SOURCE that shows up when you hover above GREENS! (because it's on DRIVE -- I just couldn't figure out how to get it from drive to youtube; Hamline wouldn't let me download it.) SHE ALSO SAYS SOME REALLY WONDERFUL THINGS FROM 10:51 - 13:00 [or 13:20] -- maybe this will be for the longer version I can show later...)
And it might be fun to include these few seconds of Melvin (singing)
But that shouldn't be the end thing -- so we could come back to Laverne Henderson!
Sigh worked his way from a dishwasher to a cook to own his own Vietnamese restaurant. Get a glimpse into his kitchen below.
Daniel Salinas shares a story about his parents' authentic Mexican cooking, including grinding their own corn to make tortillas.
Su speaks about the importance of farming among Asian immigrants. This interview reminds me of the chapter in The Color of Food called "Surviving as Transplants," where Pang Chang says: "For Hmong, people, from generation to generation, the knowledge of farming is passed on." Su says it's "in our genes."
With Laverne Henderson's story, we look at migration within the U.S. The discussion of trying to bring greens up from the South reminds me of the chapter "Taste of Home" in The Color of Food when Menkir Tamrat discusses how people would send over essential Ethiopian ingredients, sometimes one bag at a time, for use in restaurants.
Tony shares his appreciation for what we can learn about food from other cultures.
