On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Abi Ishola, we explore some of New York City’s wide-ranging ethnic foods. We meet an entrepreneur who launched a food delivery service that employs resettled refugees as chefs. We hear from a chef who left her high-powered corporate job to start a fried rice business in the Lower East Side. Abi speaks to a Georgian transplant, who is fusing her Southern roots and New York influence into a cookbook. Then we head to Queens, where a Guyanese immigrant is sharing her love of sweets and treats at her bakery.
