I received an email this morning from Allie Wollner who works with the Kitchen Sisters, award-winning, independent radio producers. They are known for their Hidden Kitchens series which airs on National Public Radio in the States and explores the ways in which food, culture and community intertwine. Some of their past stories include Weenie Royale, a look at the impact of the WWII internment on Japanese-American culture and cuisine and An Unexpected Kitchen: The George Foreman Grill, a story of the makeshift kitchens of the homeless and low-income families centered around the George Foreman Grill and the champ's own history of hunger and poverty that led him to boxing.
They are working on a radio piece about the (former) Manor Garden Allotments in East London which were bulldozed this October to make way for the 2012 London Olympics. The story will air June 26th on NPR’s Morning Edition. International coverage for British Allotments - well worth a listen I'm sure.
