GREAT TASTE Winds Up 2011 with Food, Fun, and Great Info!

Danielle NierenbergThe last Great Taste show of the year provides a look back at 2011 from two very different perspectives.  First, we'll speak with Danielle Nierenberg, director of the Nourishing the Planet project.  Nierenberg is a well-known expert on sustainability and livestock.  The project she oversees, "...assesses the state of agricultural innovations—from cropping methods to irrigation technology to agricultural policy—with an emphasis on sustainability, diversity, and ecosystem health, as well as productivity. The project aims to both inform global efforts to eradicate hunger and raise the profile of these efforts. The project also considers the institutional infrastructure needed by each of the approaches analyzed, suggesting what sort of companion investments are likely to determine success—from local seed banks to processing facilities, from pro-poor value chains to marketing bureaus."

The second half of the hour, our guest is Molly Aronica, restaurant editor for The Daily Meal, one of the best food blogs on the net.  Molly will talk with us about the food trends of 2011, predictions for the 2012 trends, share some insights on important kitchen tools to make your holiday meal preparations easier, and much more.

Winter Songs
Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

Seeing as it's the night before Christmas Eve I'm going with a Christmas theme for this show. I've got a bunch more for you from the lovely Hotel Cafe complilation CD Winter Songs, featuring many of the talented ladies who have graced their stage in the past year. Plus other seasonal songs from traditional (like Priscilla Ahn singing Silent Night) to quirky (Dar William's Christians and the Pagans) - all sung by some of my favorite artists that I've played on the show this year.

Tune in every Tuesday from 9-10am for great music by female singer-songwriters!

We'll share our ideas for yummy holiday party food when you tune into

GREAT TASTE tonight or for our encore performance Friday morning 8-9 AM.

Don't miss the fun and good eats!
