About This Show
Delicious Revolution is a show about food, culture, and place. We talk with people whose expertise in food comes from working with food as farmers, fishers, artists, cooks, activists, scholars, journalists, and more. They spend a large portion of their life thinking about food- what it means, how to make it, how to change the food system, how it ties together societies. We will bring you in-depth conversations with some of the brilliant people that inspire the ways we think about food.

#41 Aileen Suzara on decolonizing food traditions, and the power of food and food stories to heal
4 days ago
Aileen Suzara is a land-based educator, eco-advocate, and cook. She was born in Washington, raised mostly on the Big Island of Hawai’i, and is currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her family spans the Philippines and North America, and these places define her. While she has spent years working towards building healthier communities, sustainable foods, and environmental justice, she also carries a torch for storytelling and its ability to inspire, move, and transform. Currently, she recently completed a Masters in public health at the University of California, Berkeley’s graduate school of public health and nutrition, and she is also in La Cocina’s kitchen incubator program, where she is starting a food business called Sariwa. She is exploring the potential to lift up traditional Filipino-inspired foodways as one solution towards chronic disease that will also boost ecological health and the livelihood of small farmers. In this interview, Aileen talks with Chelsea about decolonizing food traditions, and the power of food and food stories to heal.
