This week, Food Talk’s Dani Nierenberg sits down with celebrity chef Tom Colicchio to discuss The Independent Restauranteur’s Coalition and its efforts in helping local restaurants. She also speaks with Irving Fain, CEO of Bowery Farming, to discuss the rapidly developing space of vertical farming.

Together, Fain, Colicchio and Nierenberg discuss how to bring local foods to cityscapes around the country, sustaining local restaurants as not just businesses, but also community hubs, and how vertical farming can work with traditional methods instead of merely replacing them. For the next hour, sit back, relax, and check out the most recent episode of Food Tank’s podcast! (via Food Tank)
