Chefs and Cookbook Authors Spill Their Food Truths

Eric Kim, Jenny Rosenstrach, and Reem Assil have sat for the TASTE Monday Interview.

We launched the TASTE Monday Interview on March 23, 2020, with a slightly nervy catch-up with Joe Yonan, food and dining editor of the Washington Post. Joe was gracious to talk about his sharp legume examination that had just been released, Cool Beans. Since then we’ve used the weekly conversation as a way to check in with our friends, old and new, around the food world: cookbook authors, chefs, journalists, Moby. These conversations—which we publish each week and send out as a newsletter—tap into big ideas, and sometimes slight controversies. There are hot takes and cold gazpachos, and plenty of new cookbooks to check out. While we plan for a big fall, I wanted to take a pause and call out some of my recent favorites from the past year, including conversations with Eric Kim, Reem Assil, James Hoffmann, Rick Martínez, Dorie Greenspan, and Christina Tosi.
