For The Love Of Yogurt

Proud of our most recent series on The Salt, For The Love of Yogurt. This was a series I conceived and put together, with the help of the food team. It features stories on arson, heirloom bacteria, microbe manufacturers, antidepressants, Neolithic revolutionaries, portable Mongolian yogurt cubes and more!

A Nigerian chef, his traveling pop-up and immigrations woes

A couple weeks ago, my story on Tunde Wey, the madcap Nigerian chef behind the traveling pop-up dinner event Lagos, aired on Morning Edition. The story was many months in the making, as Wey was detained by the Border Patrol for several weeks after I’d already produced a story about his culinary exploits. When he was released on bail in late February, I rewrote and reproduced the piece to include the new twist. Give it a listen!
