Wylie Dufresne is a legendary force in the New York City chef world. As the owner of wd~50, he pioneered a form of cooking, sometimes called modernist cuisine, and brought it to worldwide attention. And now he’s turned his attention to pizza with the opening of Stretch Pizza on Park Avenue. In this lively conversation, we talk about Wylie’s pandemic pizza project that went to the next level. We also discuss cookbooks and our shared love for the New York City shop Kitchen Arts & Letters. I hope you enjoy hearing from Wylie as much as I did.
Also on the show, we had the amazing Korean author Han Kang in the studio to talk about her fiction, including the International Booker Prize–winning novel The Vegetarian, and how food plays a role in her writing.
