”Today’s Main Ingredient,” a podcast produced by SEEDS of Northeastern Pennsylvania, will launch a series of weekly, 15-minute audio programs on May 16, focusing on local farms and food businesses one ingredient at a time.
The first installment will be “Asparagus: How It’s Grown, How to Prepare It” with interviews by farmer Brian Fox of Salem Mountain Natural Vegetables, whose farm is near Waymart, and Chef Ben Cooper of Here & Now Brewing Company located in Honesdale.
The podcasts will be posted weekly on SeedsGroup.net. It also will air on two of Bold Gold Media’s radio stations, WDNH (90.5 FM) and WYCY Classic Hits (105.3 FM), on Sundays at 7:05 a.m. and 7:20 a.m., respectively, and podcasted on their RadioBold.com site.
In each episode, the host and interviewer, Mikki Uzupes, a Honesdale-based former radio newscaster, will interview a local farmer and a local chef or food entrepreneur about the week’s featured ingredient. Each installment will close with some words about that ingredient’s healthy eating properties from certified nutritionist Carol Kneier, Wayne Memorial Hospital’s Community Outreach Manager.
This series is made possible, in part, by funding from the Greater Pike Community Foundation. For more information contact the series producer, Jane Bollinger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
