Florida Matters
Because it’s strange and beautiful and hot, people from everywhere converge on Florida and they bring their cuisine and their traditions with them. The Zest celebrates the intersection of food and communities in the Sunshine State.

WUSF’s The Zest Podcast Launches Its Fourth Season

The Zest offers up a variety of food stories and insights from across the state.

Upcoming episodes range from an interview with the owners of 2 Korean Girls in Miami to the history of Gatorade, the popular sports drink created by the University of Florida scientists.

On this week’s Florida Matters, we look forward to the new season of The Zest, a WUSF podcast that celebrates the intersection of food and Florida.

Host Bradley George checks in with Dalia Colon, host and executive producer of The Zest, about what to look forward to from the podcast’s fourth season.

It premiered last week with an episode about Disney Food Blog. The site, which is run by Dallas-based writer AJ Wolfe, offers up food recommendations for Walt Disney World in Orlando, as well as Disneyland in California.

The second episode, which airs later this week, features Zak Stern of the Miami-based kosher bakery, Zak the Baker.

Colon said upcoming episodes range from an interview with the owners of 2 Korean Girls in Miami to the history of Gatorade, the popular sports drink created by the University of Florida scientists.

She also noted that the Zest team expanded to two since the last season. Andrew Lucas joined Colon as a producer. You can hear Lucas in later episodes this season, Colon said.
