"It's going to take some time and hopefully followers, fans, and readers will trust us to do right by them. And we hope that we can show that we care and that there are a core team of us who are really trying to dismantle the kind of toxic structures that have been put in place." –Joey Hernandez, Bon Appetit research director
We're stepping away from our normal one-on-one author interviews this month to hold space for deeper conversations around equity and representation in food media and the cookbook industry. Stay tuned as we talk with cookbook authors, food writers, editors, podcast hosts, and the generation of young cooks and food writers.
In today's episode, we're starting by taking a look at the reckoning that's taking place at Bon Appetit and other food media outlets. We're joined by food writer Tammie Teclemariam, Bon Appetit's research director Joey Hernandez, and podcast host Cathy Erway.
