Washington D.C.'s Premiere Radio Show on the Food Scene

Nycci Nellis and her husband host a Washington, D.C. food oriented radio show, Foodie and the Beast, which airs on WFED Radio, 1500am Sundays from 11am-12:00pm. This Sunday, January 8, 2011, their guests will be Sally Fallon Morell, President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, cheesemaker and author of Nourishing Traditions cookbook. Sally’s interview will be followed by raw milk and food freedom activist, Liz Reitzig, Founder of the new Farm Food Freedom Coaltion. Please tune in and tell your friends!

The show will introduce Sally’s new farm in Maryland, P.A. Bowen Farmstead, to the DC food scene, and will explore her reasons for becoming a farmer and cheesemaker. Liz Reitzig will tell her raw milk journey and how being denied raw milk access in the state of Maryland led her to become a leading crusader for this nutritious food. She will tell listeners about her latest project, the Raw Milk Freedom Riders.

Like the Don Imus show, this radio show is videotaped, edited and aired later on TV on the NBC DC Nonstop show, usually the following Friday. I will update this post once the TV airdate is firm, so check back to this blog post for that information!

Check out Nycci’s website. Follow Nycci (pronounced Nikki) in twitter to get reminders, she will tweet prior to the show, @nycnell.

Kimberly Hartke is the publicist for the Campaign for Real Milk, a project of the nutrition education non-profit, Weston A. Price Foundation.
