This Is TASTE 291: Hillary Dixler Canavan

Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater’s restaurant editor and the author of the publication’s debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters. On this lively episode we talk about Hillary’s reporting for Eater’s debut cookbook, and how one wrangles recipes from chefs without going nuts. We also hear about Hillary’s work covering the national restaurant scene, and, of course, get her favorites in New York, Los Angeles, and beyond. This is a great conversation, and we hope you enjoy it.

Also on the show, Matt recaps a recent trip to Virginia Beach. There’s great food down there! He discusses visits to: Love SongThe Pink Dinghy, a fried chicken vibe check starring BoBo’s Fine Chicken and Pollard’s. He also stopped by Four Eleven York in Norfolk, Heirloom, and Gelati Celesti.
