Diaspora Co., the five-year-old company on a mission to build a better spice trade, sold its first batch of kadipatta plants this year, sending small green sprouts to homes across the country in May. Also known as curry leaf trees, kadipatta plants have leaves that provide crucial flavor to many South Asian dishes, but – native to the subcontinent – they can be difficult to grow in the United States. United. So, to help its customers and their factories thrive, Diaspora has set up a kind of hotline.

With their purchase, shoppers gained access to Diaspora’s Discord server, where a channel called Kadipatta Care Community connects plant parents with each other as well as with Zee Husain, who co-founded Cultural Roots Nursery and with whom Diaspora has partnered. to grow plants. The string is used to ask questions such as: What should I do if I see tiny insects in the ground? What about a spot of white mold? Where should I put my plant during a heat wave? There are photos of the plants when they arrived in their new homes, as well as weeks later repotted and hopefully thriving.

Like Slack but not associated with office work, Discord is a communication platform where each group is called a server and each server can be partitioned into topic-specific channels. Live streaming and voice chat features initially made it popular with the gaming community, but its user base has grown and Discord now has over 150 million monthly active users. Diaspora has essentially turned its Discord server into a public square: on other channels, members share recipes and cookbook reviews, discuss where to get hard-to-find ingredients, and learn about how to use them. rose petals and beans. Since Diaspora started creating its Discord space in October, its server has gained over 1,400 members. Many of them came to the platform through kadipatta factories, while others gained early access through Club Masala, a loyalty program for anyone who purchased Diaspora’s masala dabba, a hand-spun brass spice jar, or spent over $200 a year – essentially, the server is packed with the most diehard Diaspora fans.

Discord is showing promise for Diaspora, which first found success through Instagram, where founder Sana Javeri Kadri’s long and honest captions attracted a like-minded audience. “It had a lot of power for a long time, we were able to create this really lovely, enthusiastic, third-culture, first-generation, second-generation community,” says Javeri Kadri. But in late 2020, it became clear that although Diaspora’s audience had grown (it currently has 113,000 Instagram followers), people weren’t seeing the brand’s posts as much due to changes in the algorithm. The change has been frustrating for Javeri Kadri and countless other small businesses, which have seen a major drop in sales without any recourse – and they still remain beholden to app vagaries.

Platforms like Instagram and TikTok are crucial for introducing people to new food brands and creators, but the limitations of apps are becoming increasingly apparent. Javeri Kadri started feeling like the Diaspora Instagram account was talking to people, instead of allowing people to talk to each other. “The desire for something more, where we could engage with our community, felt really helpful,” she says. Channeling communities away from TikTok and Instagram — and into spaces that facilitate a direct relationship between creator and consumer — could be a way out of the algorithm-dependent cycle.

Diaspora is certainly not the first food brand to join Discord. When Wendy’s joined the platform last year, she built the “largest branded Discord server of all time, with a total of 52,000 members” in just two weeks, according to a press release. It has over 44,000 members at the time of this writing and remains relatively active in sharing fanart (more furs than burgers), pet images, and memes. Its existence indicates an expansion of the role that brands believe they should play in the lives of users.

“Yeah, it’s a place to talk about products,” Wendy’s social media manager, Kristin Tormey, told marketing firm Contagious in February. “But it wasn’t necessarily the idea that crossed the platform, it was more that we saw our audience switch to Discord. Now we are able to engage with this audience that we can talk to directly. Whether it’s upcoming announcements and brand activations, or just life in general.

While Diaspora brought its community to an existing platform, Ian Moore decided to build a new one. Inspired by a barbecue group discussion, he launched DEMI Community in 2020 with the aim of helping chefs generate income by creating their own online spaces. “Instagram is largely built on the amount of followers you have, rather than the depth of what those followers do,” Moore says.

In comparison, DEMI focuses on the power of a more engaged but smaller fan base. Through DEMI, a chef or food creator acts as a community host who guides discussions, offers prompts, and answers questions; access is via a paid monthly subscription. Similarly, there’s The Plate, a Berlin-based platform that aims to “give control back to food creators” through a subscription model for exclusive content. And it’s all part of a larger cultural shift towards spaces like Substack and Patreon.

What started in WhatsApp group chats — with some popular enough to reach the messaging platform’s previous limit of 256 members, according to Moore — now lives on in DEMI’s own app, which she launched on last year. For $10 a month, there’s Sandwich Ministry by chef Sicily Sierra and Never Ending Salon by pastry chef Natasha Pickowicz and Beit Mishmish by pop-up chef Michelle Nazzal, and more. “At the end of the day, creators deserve to move that audience off Instagram to have more direct contact with them,” Moore says. “They’re just borrowing from the public [on Instagram]; it’s quite dangerous, and I think it’s very unfair.

However, these modes of community development are not without drawbacks. With new groups online, there is always the risk of starting with a bang but quickly burning out, without the right prompts or active leaders. While DEMI made a lot of sense to creators and their communities at the height of the pandemic, things changed “by a million percent,” Moore says. “If you are a chef, what do you want to do? You want to cook. He now sees DEMI entering a new stage in which “community will be a feature within a platform”, not the be-all and end-all of the platform. The plan is also to facilitate showcases so that chefs, bakers and creators who often answer questions about where to get that ingredient or kitchen tool can get paid for the recommendations they already make.

After the initial hurdle of Diaspora’s Discord server setup and structure, Javeri Kadri says members have made the space “active and so healthy.” To keep the momentum going, she’s thinking about how Discord can really add value to its members’ lives, replicating the sense of community and dialogue she found on Instagram. As she and recipe editor Asha Loupy work on the first Diaspora cookbook, she thinks Discord could be the space, for example, to bounce ideas from Diaspora fans: would they find a chapter on biryani or a more useful chapter on chutney?

While Reels and TikToks will continue to be part of the Diaspora model, Discord is helping Javeri Kadri feel less dependent on them. “In an ideal scenario, Discord becomes a knowledge base for community information and resources,” she says. “That’s how a lot of [community] organizers use Discord; we take advantage of it.

If you’ve eaten at Cinnamon Bazaar, Vivek Singh’s restaurant in Covent Garden, you’ll know that some curries are so hot that customers have to sign a disclaimer before ordering it. “I sign voluntarily and not under the influence of alcohol I choose to eat Bollywood Burner,” the note reads. “I have been advised that this is an attempt at the hottest curry in the world, so I will most definitely find it very, very spicy.”

I did it. Painfully so. Sweat, tears and gasps are in store for the naive Bollywood Burner consumer. But there’s little room for pride in the world of competitive chilli drinking – all you can do is wipe your brow and hope for a friendly waiter.

Singh created the original curry about 15 years ago when it was featured on the TV show Friday Night with Jonathan Ross. Made with a blend of Dorset Nagas – then the second hottest chilli in the world – it paired minced lamb with caps of sesame, tamarind and Scotch. Requests came in from all over the world, a phenomenon Singh never quite understood. “We started to feel sorry for those who wanted to try it,” he says. But now the Bollywood Burner is back and more masochistic than ever. In place of the Dorset Naga is the Carolina Reaper, a hybrid of the ghost pepper and the habanero, and about half a million Scoville heat units (the measure of a pepper’s potency) hotter than its predecessor.

It’s a level of heat that makes you wonder: when is something too spicy? For Singh, who sources the spices used by his restaurant group directly from India, the Bollywood Burner goes beyond its own limits – a dish more indicative of a “childhood fascination with heat” than Indian cuisine. Instead, he prefers to target the aftertaste, using spices that leave a light, lingering heat. Take garam masala – “hot spice” – a blend of cumin, coriander, cardamom and cinnamon, and traditionally made without chillies. (Other Cinnamon Bazaar dishes aim for a diverse range of spice levels; consider the Bollywood Burner a reckless and exciting risk.)

Balancing flavors is a delicate art for spice-loving chefs. Skilfully executed, the effects are jubilant and deviate from a Michelin guide long criticized for being “too French”. At the West African restaurant Akoko in London, most dishes are flavored with kaani, a sauce made up of equal parts scotch bonnet, onion and sweet pepper; it “gives you warmth without pain,” says founder Aji Akokomi. Similarly, in Malaysia, One&Only Desaru Coast uses a sambal made from fresh red chillies and palm sugar to add underlying spice to classic dishes such as nasi lemak. And for San Francisco-based Heena Patel of Besharam, the balance is often found in her use of silk pepper, a mild pepper that scores around 5,000 to 10,000 on the Scoville scale.

At a spicier end of the spectrum are the dishes of Luke Farrell, a chef turned chili farmer who has spent 15 years in kitchens across Thailand and Southeast Asia. Plaza Khao Gaeng, his new restaurant at London’s Arcade Food Hall, uses 15 different chillies, many of which are grown in his greenhouse in Dorset. Farrell uses the most pungent Phatthalung pepper, which he combines with dee plee, a long pepper, to create a long, punchy heat in a fierce kua kling moo (spicy ground pork stir-fry).

The way to use hot peppers, says Farrell, is to bruise them, add the flesh to a soup or curry, and remove the residue after the “liquor” has dissolved. “You can actually get the flavor without blowing your mind,” he adds. Each dish at Plaza Khao Gaeng captures the unique flavor profile of each pepper; as long as you love spice, the menu offers a deliciously intoxicating twist around some of Thailand’s lesser-known ingredients. (Another way to capture flavor is to dry roast peppers; Wes Avila does it with potent árbol chiles at new Yucatán-inspired restaurant Ka’teen in Los Angeles.)

Leigh Cowart, author of It Hurts So Much: The Science and Culture of Intentional Pain, says that chili peppers have the power to provide both pain and pleasure. Besides the natural endorphins that are released when we eat spicy foods, “overcoming an aversive stimulus can be a lot of fun,” they say. “It can make you feel like you’ve survived something.” Add that feeling to a meal shared with friends, and the experience immediately becomes something communal – a sadistic bonding experience, if you will.

The allure of the chilli is so thrilling that even innocent onlookers can feel the kick. Just watch the hit YouTube series Hot Ones, where celebrities are interviewed while eating a platter of industrial-grade hot wings. Recent episodes have seen Khloé Kardashian cry; actor Daniel Kaluuya, meanwhile, was mostly able to keep his cool. “[I] don’t pander — sometimes to my stupidity,” he said.

As for the recommended amount of spices, the limit varies from person to person. “Pain is always subjective,” says Cowart. “Whether someone likes hot peppers or not has to do with their physiology, their personal history, and their desire for connection and new experiences.” Consider the Bollywood Burner, then, a matter of personal taste. For some, this invites an intoxicating experience; for others, it’s just pure, intolerable heat. I do not know in which camp I fall. But I know it will be a while before I order it again.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – As the farm is open for the season in southern Colorado, a new tool aims to strengthen the connection between consumers and the families who grow their food. The Palmer Land Conservancy has just released its comprehensive local food guide.

“It was born out of real need, a disconnect between community members and where our food comes from,” said Dillon O’Hare, community conservation manager for the Palmer Land Conservancy.

The document is more than just a directory of farms and ranches in the area. It also includes an article detailing the history of agriculture in each county.

“There’s a seasonal guide to help you get an idea of ​​what vegetables are in season right now, there are recipes in there, there are grower highlights that dive into some of the specific family stories,” explained O’Hare.

Britt Colon, a fourth-generation farmer from Colon Orchards in Cañon City, witnessed the disconnect. She teaches agriculture lessons to public school students every day in October.

“When I ask them where the food is from, it’s not from the grocery store,” Colon said. “There’s a farmer over there who grew this.”

She invites the students to pick apples from the trees.

“A lot of adults have never picked an apple from a tree,” she said.

Colon sees farming as a dying profession. It requires a heavy amount of labor often for very narrow margins.

“Farmers don’t take days off,” she says.

Farmers and herders often risk significant financial losses due to natural disasters. A few years ago, temperatures remained abnormally warm until November. When a sudden cold front knocked the thermostat down, the temperature swing devastated the orchard.

“We lost about 85% of our trees,” she said. “So, ouch. Farming is definitely tough.”

Colon had to get creative. The farm now operates a corn maze in the fall, offers guests wagon rides, the opportunity to pick apples and pumpkins.

“It has regenerated the farm, agritourism is a great thing,” she said.

Breeder Elin Parker Ganschow also sees her profession in terms similar to an endangered species. When she was growing up, cattlemen like her father could typically expect a return of about $0.70 for every dollar a consumer paid for beef at the store. Breeders are expecting over $0.25 today.

She explained that in the 1940s the government came up with the concept of parity to value livestock.

“Here’s a simple way to look at it, how much cattle does it take to pay for a new Ford F-150 pickup, for example,” she said. “So back then it needed about three, now it probably takes 60.”

Ganshow reinvented the Music Meadows Ranch business concept in the mid-1990s. Consumers could buy a whole cow, or split the cost with other buyers, through its Sangres Best Beef product label. The meat is packaged and frozen for long term storage.

“We have a very specialized business that supplies ranch to table beef,” she explained. “So we sell direct to the consumer.”

Where commercial ranches will send cattle to feedlots before shipping them for processing, Ganschow lets them grow nice and fat by eating the 60 different grasses, herbaceous plants and legumes that are native to this valley.

“Kind of like the Dolly Parton song, I was country when country wasn’t cool, well, I was grass fed before grass was cool,” she jokes.

Its managed grazing program has been recognized by conservation groups because it not only sustains the land, but also improves it. The herd is concentrated on smaller pastures for shorter periods.

“It fertilizes more evenly, the hoof action is important because it creates divots in the soil that help prevent runoff from flowing away,” she explains.

Cattle also compete with each other for the tastiest herbs. This competition adds more variety to their diet and prevents less desirable forage from becoming overgrown. Moving the herd more frequently also allows the remaining grasses to recover faster.

“We all want there to be some kind of shortcut to everything, it’s just our nature, and when it comes to food, every shortcut will come with some kind of cost,” Ganschow said.

Like the Colon family, she also found creative use of the ranch to support her family and educate the public about food production.

Guests can book a week-long vacation to the family’s ranch and take classes in cattle ranching.

“We’re actually in the Dude Rancher’s Association now,” she said. “We’re probably the smallest ranch of them all.”
