This episode is a live recording of the Bay Area stop on the virtual tour for our new book, Snacky Tunes: Music is the Main Ingredient, Chefs and Their Music. We were immensely honored to have our friends at Oxfam America as our partners and hosts for this event which featured a lovely, insightful conversation about food, music and activism with singer-songwriter Thao Nguyen of Thao & the Get Down Stay Down and acclaimed chef Preeti Mistry. Isra Chaker, Senior Advisor for Global Campaigns at Oxfam America, moderated the discussion, and Omnivore Books, the Bay Area’s premiere culinary bookshop was our sponsor. 

We encourage everyone to support Oxfam America in their important fight against the injustice of poverty. For more info and to donate, please visit
