Weeknight Kitchen: Grilled Salmon with Horseradish and Pickled Beet Sauce (Lachs)

Serves 4
The combination of pickled beets and horseradish is common in eastern Europe, and its popularity has been co-opted by German cooks, who have long used both elements in the kitchen. If possible, use homemade pickled beets to create the robustly flavored topping for this simple salmon dinner.
· 1 cup/155 g sliced pickled beets, homemade (recipe follows) or store-bought, roughly chopped
· 3 tbsp freshly grated horseradish or prepared horseradish
· 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh curly-leaf parsley
· Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

To The Best of Our Knowledge presents: Death (A Five-Part Series)

Part 1: The Reckoning

We'll chart the emerging "death movement" - from death cafes and death dinners to innovated schools that now talk openly about death with their students. A therapist/hospice worker will reflect on her own experience of talking to people who are dying. How can we prepare for our own death and for the deaths of our loved ones?

Tune in for part 1 of Death, coming up Saturday, March 7th at 3pm, on 90.5 FM WCBE Columbus.

The Takeaway - Under Her Skin: Living with Breast Cancer


Over the last 30 years, researchers have documented a widening survival gap between black and white women diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. In March 2014, one study found that black women diagnosed with breast cancer are, on average, 40 percent more likely to die than their white counterparts. With that dire statistic in mind, The Takeaway decided to look behind the numbers and hear from a range of African-American women diagnosed with the disease.

Native Son, Studio 360's American Icon Series

Native Son is Richard Wright's novel about a young man in the ghetto who turns to murder; was an overnight sensation when it was first published in 1940. But some think Native Son exploited the worst stereotypes of black youth. We trace the line from Bigger Thomas to Notorious B.I.G., and visit a high school drama class acting out Native Son as a way to grasp the racism their grandparents experienced.
