    rise & shine

    Here at pineapple we literally go to bed dreaming about breakfast. One of the highlights of our pineapple LA launch was waking up to LA's breakfast scene. In LA, breakfast is more than the most important meal of the day - it’s an opportunity to give gratitude for what we appreciate most about what's on our plates: the soil growing the delicious ingredients, the people harvesting the food, and the nourishment, flavor, and California bounty we all #pinefor. This episode in collab with Full Service Radio is a breakfast of champions--Caitlin Sullivan of Honey Hi, Ally Walsh of Canyon Coffee, and Nicole Rucker of Fiona--and broadcasted live in front of a 30+ person audience from The Line Hotel in Koreatown.

    farming in harmony

    How sustainable is sustainable agriculture when it comes to economic and community needs in addition to environmental considerations? We discuss the founding of DC-based Three Part Harmony Farm, one of the only for-profit production farms in the district, and its mission to grow food for people, while challenging our assumptions on how urban farms should look and the role they play in our cities.

    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.
