  • George Stern is a deafblind #FloridaMan residing in West Texas who has written for Serious Eats about how cooking websites currently fail people with disabilities.
  • As someone more generally embedded in the disabled, Black, and immigrant experiences in the US, his particular interest is in the civic power of food, particularly the power of food and foodways to develop politically, financially, and environmentally strong communities.
  • George’s desert island food is tacos; the onion-ier, cilantro-ier, and saucier the better.
