  • Bryant Terry: Vegetable Kingdom

    160

    Plant-based. Vegetable-forward. These terms have become more and more popular in a culinary world now obsessed with sustainable eating. But what if these ideas are hardly new? What if they have deep cultural roots around the world that often go underacknowledged or underappreciated? Bryant Terry is the chef-in-residence at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco. His newest cookbook, Vegetable Kingdom, is a beautiful homage to Black and Afro culinary traditions that emphasize plant-based cooking. Music, also finds itself front and center in this book. Each recipe features a song to cook to, and the entire playlist can be found here. At a time where physical distancing means we’re often staying indoors, this conversation is sure to offer something special for all of us. Bryant shares more in this collaborative episode with the Table Underground’s Tagan Engel, detailing the ways in which his cookbook and work advocate for a more just, resilient food system. Bryant’s visit to campus came as part of our “Cooking Across the Black Diaspora” series, a themed line-up for Chewing the Fat. The series commemorates Black History Month, and the 50th anniversary for both the Afro-American Cultural Center and Yale Department of African American Studies. Chief co-sponsors include the Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale, and the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration, with Saybrook College, LoveFed New Haven, People Get Ready! Books, and the Table Underground also supporting Bryant’s visit. about us: website: https://www.sustainablefood.yale.edu/chewing-the-fat-podcast facebook: @yalesustainablefoodprogram twitter: @ysfp instagram: @ysfp Chewing the Fat is a podcast from the Yale Sustainable Food Program.

    In the early 2000s, eating local was believed to be transformative for our food systems. Those changes may not have come true, but what happens when we revisit local food today—this time, emphasizing equity, coalition-building, and approaches specific to place? Kiki Louya is a Congolese-American chef and entrepreneur who founded the all-women hospitality group, Nest Egg. Her two businesses, the Farmer’s Hand and FOLK, have flourished in Detroit, building new industry ideas for fair wages, sustainability, and equity. We chat with Kiki more on how progress for Detroit can be inclusive of all, and the relationships it takes to make these ambitions a reality. Kiki’s visit comes as part of our “Cooking Across the Black Diaspora” series, a themed line-up for Chewing the Fat.

  • Ep. 29 - Amanda Hitt on Why the Animal Agriculture Industry Needs Whistleblowers
    YaleUniversity

    191

    In an age where almost everything we eat is produced outside of public view, whistleblowers are critical to maintaining the integrity of our food systems. These principled insiders are often the first people to warn the public — often at grave personal cost — when food is unsafe, when workers face inhumane conditions, when food labels mislead consumers, and when animals and the environment are being abused. But who defends these front-line defenders? Our guest, attorney Amanda Hitt, has been a champion and visionary for protecting and empowering food system whistleblowers for over a decade. As the founder and director of the Government Accountability Project’s Food Integrity Campaign, Hitt's clients have included USDA food safety inspectors in ultra-high-speed slaughterhouses, contract poultry farmers faced with exploitative contracts and company retaliation, and animal researchers privy to taxpayer-funded waste and cruelty. In addition to litigating whistleblowers’ cases, Hitt and her team work to draw public attention to these whistleblowers' stories and to turn their revelations into systemic legal reforms. In this episode, Hitt takes us inside the world of animal agriculture industry whistleblowers. We speak with Hitt about her clients’ stories and motivations, the patchwork of laws that provide protections and redress for whistleblowers, the reality behind her video game "Bacon Defender,” and why food animal welfare, public health, and worker rights are inextricably intertwined.

This Article asks why a liberal, reformist agency chose that path—and what it teaches about administrative constitutionalism.

  • Professor Sharon Jacobs on The Statutory Separation of Powers

    Professor Sharon Jacobs talks about her recent article, The Statutory Separation of Powers. Separation of powers forms the backbone of our constitutional democracy. But it also operates as an underappreciated structural principle in subconstitutional domains. This Article argues that Congress constructs statutory schemes of separation, checks, and balances through its delegations to administrative agencies. Like its constitutional counterpart, the “statutory separation of powers” seeks to prevent the dominance of factions and ensure policy stability. But separating and balancing statutory authority is a delicate business: the optimal balance is difficult to calibrate ex ante, the balance is unstable, and there are risks that executive agencies might seek expansion of their authority vis-à-vis their independent counterparts. After exploring a case study involving the Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the article concludes with recommendations for how Congress, agencies, and the judiciary might mitigate these tendencies and preserve the statutory separation of powers as a meaningful safeguard against the perils of concentrated executive policy-making authority.
