Bon Appétit and Me: 32 Years in America’s Food Revolution
Join us on February 10th for Barbara Fairchild in conversation with Nancy Zaslavsky!
“Bon Appétit and Me: 32 Years in America’s Food Revolution”
What was it like to have a front-row seat to the biggest revolution in American food in half a century? In fact, what was it like to help create it? Barbara Fairchild knows. In her more than 30-year career at Bon Appétit magazine—including over ten years as editor-in-chief—Barbara and her team were at the forefront of finding, influencing, and reporting on the personalities, restaurants, and recipes that helped shape generations in professional and home kitchens.
