Known as the "Harlem Pie Man," Clinton Shabazz has been living in Harlem for 40 years and baking and selling pies for 28 of them, first from a folding table on the street, then a bakery, and now even at Whole Foods. What happens when we pair Shabazz's sweet potato pie, a Southern soul food classic, together with a newer addition to the American palate – chai? Enter Raj Makhija, owner of Roots Chai, which draws on ancestral tea recipes his family has brewed for generations. Now, both Shabazz and Makhija operate out of a shared commercial kitchen space run by the non-profit Hot Bread Kitchen as part of a business incubator program. Together, they sit down with food writer Ariel Lauren Wilson and Caroline Mak, Program Director of Hot Bread Kitchen's Incubator, to talk about what it's like to launch and sustain a small business here in New York City.
