Marion Nestle Talks Food Politics And Her New Memoir, “Slow Cooked”
Listen now
Description
Professor, author, and food marketing watchdog Marion Nestle was a late bloomer. As she explains, she didn’t make her mark professionally until her groundbreaking book “Food Politics” was published in 2002. Marion was 66. “That’s kind of late to get started,” she tells host Kerry Diamond. In Marion’s new memoir, “Slow Cooked: An Unexpected Life In Food Politics,” she looks at the societal and familial forces—and the personal hang-ups—that stood in her way. Don’t miss this revealing conversation with one of the most inspiring individuals in the food world. Marion also talks about the NYU food studies program she helped launch, the food policy changes she would make if she were President, and the reasons she finally decided to write a memoir.
