A New Kind of Restaurant Critic: Soleil Ho

When Soleil Ho was hired to be the new restaurant critic at the San Francisco Chronicle, she was replacing someone who had held the role for 32 years. She took it upon herself to totally reinvent the job, working to create a sight of exploration, representation, and equity. Listen in on our conversation to learn how she did it, and what her role is like now, in the time of Corona. In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas. Keep Queer the Table on the air: become an HRN Member today! Go to heritageradionetwork.org/donate.

More than Just Rainbow Cupcakes

This week, Nico is joined by Ingrid Nilsen. Ingrid launched her first YouTube Channel in 2009, quickly amassing millions of followers under the moniker "missglamorazzi." Ingrid went viral in 2015 when she posted a raw, emotional coming out video on her channel. Since then, she has become a tirless advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and representation. Her latest project, Cooking With Pride, is a web-series that queer invites chefs to teach viewers to make, and tell the stories behind, their favorite dishes.

Episode 10: Cheers for Queer Beer!

When Bhavini Patadia met their now-girlfriend Saskia Ullman, they didn't even really drink beer- they just drank it to impress her. On today's episode, both Bhavini and Saskia tell the story of how that initial attempts to woo a girl led to the founding of Queer Beer: a full-fledged brewery driven by the goal of creating space for and giving back to London's LGBTQ+ community.

On today's episode, we travel through space and time to two such spaces: the storied "lesbian potluck," and its more modern, Brooklynite rendition: Queer Soup Night.
