Unforked

About the Show

We all gotta eat. Sometimes food is just sustenance to get you through the day — but food can be so much more.

Unforked picks apart the food we eat to reveal the culture and politics baked into it. On the surface, it’s a show about food…but really it’s about people — the people who grow, cook, eat and claim food as their own.

Samira Mohyeddin is your host and maitre’d. For the past 16 years, she’s run a restaurant with her siblings in Toronto’s Queen West neighbourhood. She’s been a journalist for just as long and is a producer with CBC Radio’s The Current. Samira thinks about food. All. The. Time. 

Unforked brings you sticky conversations with passionate eaters where nothing is off the table. From the vilification of MSG to Indigenous chefs who are decolonizing their diets, from the battle to ‘own’ hummus to the ways we use food as a love language, Unforked will change the way you think about your next meal. 

Unforked — serving up food for thought.
