“Essentially I am recording a show that celebrates food through the vehicle of my program called, "Norman Van Aken's Word on Food".  As an extension of my food and memoir writing the WLRN show allows me to 'wander around' in the multicultural mix that is South Florida. I choose a word (or a word or two or three) and talk about it through memory, flavors, historical information, recipe suggestions etc. And speaking of memoirs.. my memoir, "No Experience Necessary... The Culinary Odyssey of Chef Norman Van Aken" will be published this Fall by Taylor Trade Press,”  said Norman Van Aken in an e-mail received today.

Norman Van Aken has published five cookbooks: Feast of Sunlight 1988, The Exotic  by Text-Enhance">Fruit Book 1995, Norman’s New World Cuisine 1997, New World Kitchen 2003 and My Key West Kitchen 2012, (with Justin Van Aken). His next book is a memoir. It is titled, “No Experience Necessary” and will be out in the Fall of 2013.

“A Word on Food” is broadcast Saturdays at 8:34 AM  on WLRN 91.3 FM http://wlrn.org/programs/word-food
