In this special episode, I talk with four Indigenous chefs who attended the I-Collective’s (Indigenous, Inspired, Innovative, Independent Collective) Indigenous Harvest Pop Up dinner in New York. They talk about the dishes they prepared for the seven-course dinner and what inspires and motivates them when they cook.
