Episode 115: A Letter to Our Parents
Why is verbalizing or expressing love to our parents so hard? Growing up, many of us did not use words of affirmation as a love language with our parents. It could be mostly due to our contrasting generational Asian upbringing or the difference in language. Regardless, there are so many unspoken words of love and gratitude that we haven’t shared with them. As kids, we saw our parents as the people who’d nag us, drive us to our practices, automatically pack our lunch boxes for us, etc. However, as we get older, we start to see them as more than just our moms or dads. We start to see them as humans and understand the struggle that they came from to truly provide the best for us, their children. Today, we take the time to read letters that we each wrote to express our appreciation, love, and unspoken words to our moms and dads. Also, Happy (belated) Mother's Day to all the mom and mom figures out there!

Jet Tila on His Questionable Tattoos & Asian Representation in Food Culture
Jet Tila shares his childhood in the first Thai market in the US in LA, Tournament of Champions experience, and the stories behind his many tattoos. This week on Food Network Obsessed, host Jaymee Sire sits down with Jet Tila to talk about their brief time as floor reporters on the Iron Chef franchise and the time he avoided an awkward encounter with Jaymee. They dive into the unique challenges of Tournament of Champions and why it’s the show Jet wants to win the most. He talks about his favorite Food Network memories (and people) and the chef’s tattoo that almost was (but that he ultimately didn’t get). Jet dives into his childhood growing up in the first Thai restaurants and markets in Los Angeles, the staple ingredients he always grabs at an Asian supermarket, and what it means to him to represent and elevate Asian cuisine in the food world.    Connect with the podcast: https://www.foodnetwork.com/shows/food-network-obsessed-the-official-podcast-of-food-network    Follow Food Network on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/foodnetwork    Follow Jaymee on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jaymeesire   Follow Jet on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jettila   Learn more about Tournament of Champions: https://www.foodnetwork.com/shows/tournament-of-champions Start Your Free Trial of discovery+: https://www.discoveryplus.com/foodobsessedSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Saving the Seeds
Why do Asian Americans have such deep relationships with fruit? Cathy goes on a quest to find the answers — starting with her friendly neighborhood fruit vendor, Cece, then spending time with friends and listeners in our extended podcast fam. Along the way, she hears stories about family heirloom trees, mango sharing techniques, persimmon obsessions, and an unbridled love for durian. Then, she calls up food writer Priya Krishna and heritage farmer Kristyn Leach to unpack all the personal stories she’s heard. As Cathy learns the ways that Asian Americans across the country have instilled a reverence for fruit and upheld countless rituals with it in their lives, she realizes that our tastes are even more deeply rooted than we might think.

Choreographer-in-Residence Dana Tai Soon Burgess traces his ‘hyphenated’ background— a journey that begins on a boat from Korea, disembarks at a Hawaiian pineapple plantation, meanders through Latino culture, and then arrives at a martial arts class in New Mexico… organized by Tibetan monks. Dana also discusses the hyphenated artists featured in two of his favorite portraits at the Gallery. Both were pioneers, both were outsiders, and both had their ‘American-ness’ challenged. See the portraits: Michio Ito Isamu Noguchi (“Tracings” duet music courtesy of Aaron Leitko.)

Lena Shareef wants (to tell) a good story
All of a sudden, it was such an “us VS them” rhetoric - and I realized I was part of the ‘them’.” Lena Shareef grew up in a lot of places - Pakistan, Ukraine, and the Midwest. She’s currently making the internet do things @ National Geographic - having studied video production and journalism. Along the way she co-founded GIRLWITHABOOK, which advocates for girls' education, which she believes is one of the best solutions to climate change and poverty. When she's not battling Internet trolls at her day job or trying to convince the world of the importance of equality, feminism, and representation (none of which are really that hard), she's devouring books, movies, and TV shows, and then naturally writing/venting about them on Medium and even HER podcast “Grounded Geeks’ which she co-hosts with her brother (ALSO - her dad is pretty cool and wrote an awesome book...just ask Raman). At the end of the day, all Lena wants is just a really good story...
