This Is TASTE 356: Jamila Robinson

We enjoyed having Jamila Robinson in the studio. Jamila is the editor in chief of Bon Appétit and Epicurious, the storied Condé Nast food publications that she took over in September. There are big plans and changes afoot at One World Trade Center, and we talk about Jamila’s vision for the future and the publications’ ongoing labor dispute, while looking back at her career working in newspapers in Detroit and Philadelphia. This is a really great talk!

Also on the show, Matt shares some highlights from his recent trip to Charleston, South Carolina, putting fresh eyes on one of America’s great food cities. Stops include: Vern’s, Lewis BarbecuePalmira BarbecueRodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQWeltons Tiny BakeshopThe Spectator HotelFig167 RawKulturaLittle Jack’s Tavern.
