A live podcast event and four-course family-style dinner.

Join Heritage Radio Network and The New Food Economy as we celebrate the launch of our new podcast collaboration, The Digest. The evening will begin with a reception and live conversation between The Digest’s host, Kate Cox, and Chef Alon Shaya.

Then, Shaya’s team at Safta will prepare a four-course, family-style dinner. Safta brings you on a journey through food and beverage that pays homage to the culinary landscape of Israel. With influences that stem from the Middle East, Europe and North Africa, this menu reflects a collection of moments where food and culture have crossed paths, offering a taste of an ever-evolving cuisine.

And that’s exactly what we’ll be doing at The Digest, too!

Each week, The Digest will take listeners behind the scenes of The New Food Economy’s newsroom as NFE editor, Kate Cox, sits down with her team of writers and reporters to talk about the week’s most provocative food news. From the farm to the factory floor, and the grocery-store aisle, The Digest will cover all the compelling ways that food intersects with culture, politics, the environment, business, and technology.

Hosted by Dana Cowin, Heritage Radio Network, The New Food Economy, and Safta, with special guest Alice Waters.
