About the show

What we eat, how we eat it, and why, is integral to our sense of belonging. It ties us to our family roots and beyond that to a national identity, with the traditions surrounding our food reminding us of who we are – and perhaps who we are not. AJEats goes on a journey to discover what a city’s food tells us about its people, the fault lines of its history, the echoes of its past, and the emerging future. Have something you’d like to share?
