Joshua Henry: Mom’s Jamaican Food & Trader Joe’s Vanilla Cake

Tony and Grammy nominated performer Joshua Henry has been in nine Broadway shows, including In the Heights and the role of Aaron Burr in the first run of Hamilton, and he’s about to release his first solo album.

Joshua grew up in Miami, on his mom’s Jamaican food, so host Rachel Belle welcomes Jamaican culinary historian and cookbook author Victoria Burke to the show to lay out the long, fascinating history of Jamaican cuisine. Burke was a dear friend of Bob Marley, and she shares the incredibly healthy, culinary rituals of Rastafarians, including why they don’t use silverware or metal pots and pans. And Rachel and Joshua bond over a shared history of Shake N Bake (and I helped!).

Stars, They’re Just Like Us: they shop at Trader Joe’s! Joshua shares his Top 5 favorite foods from Trader Joe’s and we learn what shoppers voted as their very favorite TJ’s products of the year.
