About Diaspora Food Stories

Diaspora Food Stories is the latest media project from The Global Food and Drink Initiative. This groundbreaking podcast will complement its sister media outlet, Cuisine Noir Magazine, with unscripted, authentic, entertaining, and inspiring conversations held with people of African descent in food, drink and travel around the world.

With a mission to connect, share and preserve the history and culture of the African Diaspora through food, drink and travel, the podcast will add on one new dimension…language. Enjoy Diaspora Food Stories as told in English as well as other languages spoken by Black people around the world; the first for any food podcasts.

Podcasts will be released every other Wednesday and available on this website as well as where you listen to all of your podcasts.  You’ll also be able to watch full episodes on YouTube.

You can follow The Global Food and Drink Initiative on Instagram and Facebook as well as Cuisine Noir Magazine on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and TikTok for guests and episode previews.
