    will travel for food

    Staying curious about food is our MO at pineapple. Sometimes this means traveling to taste delicious food and drink. So, we invited explorer extraordinaire, Lane Harlan, who is also the genius behind Baltimore establishments WC Harlan, Clavel and Faddensonnen, to share how she plans trips--from Copenhagen's natural wine bars to Japan's sake spots to Oaxaca's markets & palenques--and honors the diverse cultures and traditions of what we love and consume here in the US and abroad.

    wine, naturally

    We care about where our food comes from, so what about our wine? Better yet, how does the way it was made affect the way it tastes, our preferences, and its impact on the food system? Picking out a bottle of wine can sometimes leave you with more questions than answers. What is the difference between organic, biodynamic, and natural wine? How can we learn more about the farming practices--VITICULTURE--by tasting? By the time we pull a bottle off the shelf, we might be more focused on getting out of the store rather than the story behind the grape. How do we answer the questions of what happens from grapevine to fine wine?

    rethinking Thanksgiving

    pineapple is all about community, so with that in mind we wanted to talk about the communities affected by the culture, history of Thanksgiving.

    The genocide of American Indians is well known to a certain extent: warfare, smallpox, and boarding schools have all contributed to the systematic erasure of Native people and culture. Today we’re discussing the history of orchestrated attacks on their traditional food systems with writer Maura Judkis and founder of Indigikitchen, Mariah Gladstone.

    positively body positive

    We're chatting body positivity- the movement for acceptance, and respect of all bodies, esp marginalized ones with body posi activists Ivy Felicia and Patrilie Hernandez. We'll learn all about what it means to dismantle harmful ideas about the size of our bodies and discuss the idea that that as women, our worth should not and must not be measured by the number on the scale.

    everyday dorie

    Dorie Greenspan was a “foodie” before the term was coined. A New Yorker with an affinity for all things French, Dorie has a pulse on everyone and everything in the food world. Through her James Beard award-winning cookbooks and popular columns in The New York Times and Washington Post, Dorie proves that you can be an exceptional cook and baker (and that there isn’t much she can’t do). But what makes a “Dorie” recipe? In “the golden age of cookbooks” what makes hers such hits? On the show we chat with Dorie- our ultimate culinary inspiration all about her storied career, kitchen inspo, and favorite cooking techniques so we too can embrace a bit of Dorie’s spunk and spontaneity in our everyday.

    wine food

    Wine and food is our raison d'etre. So we're chatting with wine lovers Dana Frank and Andrea Sloenecker on the air to celebrate their new book Wine Food - all about the pineapple way to enjoy wine. And we mean, truly ENJOY it. Move aside wine, cheese and nuts! What we love about this book is that it’s all about matching that glou-glou to the rustic, casual, global food we all love to eat. In Wine Food, they deliver recipes for the pineapple woman to enjoy brunches, salads, burgers, vegetable dishes, picnics, weeknight dinners, and feasts with friends, all inspired by delicious, natural, ethical and affordable wines that go with them beautifully.
