Stella Bugbee is the editor in chief and president of New York Magazine’s The Cut. Aside from running the most whip-smart site about women and culture out there, Stella is an avid home cook. Here Adam Rapoport talks to her about how—in The Cut’s words—she gets it done.
Episode 221: Rice 4.0

Episode 221: Rice 4.0


Back by popular demand yet again, the Rice Wizards™ swing by for the fourth installment of their rice podcast. This time, Carla Lalli Music and Amiel Stanek talk about rice beverages, and then sidetrack into tempura, and then, well, you’ll see.
It turns out that Dave Grohl—yes, that Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and Nirvana—is really good at barbecue. Like, owns-a-giant-smoker-and-barbecues-for-hundreds-of-people good. Adam Rapoport talks to Dave about how he got into the craft and how it expanded to Backbeat BBQ, his one-man catering company.One warning: This episode contains quite a bit of profanity, so you may want to save it for later if you’re listening with kids.
Gabriela Camara opened Contramar in Mexico City when she was only 21-years-old. The landmark restaurant still serves the same super-fresh seafood-forward food it did when it first opened its doors—only now Camara also runs Cala in San Francisco, just published a cookbook, and has a new spot in the works in Los Angeles. Adam Rapoport chats with her about how her career has grown (and, of course, how she makes her guacamole).
There's nothing more contentious than the criteria for the ideal chocolate chip cookie—which is why Chris Morocco spent two months conceptualizing, researching, developing, and testing his new recipe for our BA's Best collection. This week, Adam Rapoport talks with Chris about what went into each decision he made. After that, we air a conversation from our live show a few weeks back where Chris and Claire Saffitz debate the merits and pitfalls of Tiramisú.Get the recipes from this episode:BA's Best Chocolate Chip CookiesOld-School Tiramisú
Recently at BA, we noticed all the times we’d go out to dinner and leave talking about...the salad. Just what were chefs doing to make their salads so multi-layered, interesting, and surprising? Turns out, a lot. Here Carla Lalli Music and Molly Baz share tips on how to up your salad-making game to the level of the pros. After that, Adam Rapoport chats with Andy Baraghani about how to buy, wash, store, and cook with herbs.Get the recipes from this episode:Everyday Greens SaladDinner Salad with Radicchio and Roasted Sweet PotatoesScrunched Grapefruit Salad with Grapefruit and ChilesLittle Wedge Salad with Sour Cream DressingIce Water SaladSpicy Cashew Dressing
Episode 216: Indian-ish

Episode 216: Indian-ish


BA contributing writer Priya Krishna just released her first cookbook, Indian-ish: Recipes and Antics from a Modern American Family. Priya collaborated with her mother, Ritu, whose recipes combine Indian dishes and techniques with ingredients from all over (like roti pizza!). Senior staff writer Alex Beggs talks to Priya about testing those recipes in her childhood kitchen and how the book is one piece of a bigger conversation about the landscape of Indian food.
"Best of" lists are everywhere, but with so many, how much value should we actually give them? Brett Martin, reports and writes GQ's Best New Restaurants list, which came out earlier this week. Deputy editor Julia Kramer puts together BonApp's list. Technically, they work towards the same same goal. But each list comes together in a different way, on a different timeline, and with a different result. Adam Rapoport talks to them about their processes and what a “best” list even means.
Kwame Onwuachi is the chef of Kith and Kin in Washington D.C. He is also the author of the recently-published Notes From a Young Black Chef, which is just as much a memoir about growing up as it is about being a chef. Today, Adam Rapoport talks with him about his story.
When senior associate food editor Molly Baz set out to develop BA's Best Matzo Ball Soup, she not only solicited input from highly-opinionated BA staffers, but she also reached out to Mitchell Davis, chief strategy officer for the James Beard Foundation and matzo ball soup expert. Adam Rapoport chats with both of them. After that, associate editor Hilary Cadigan reads her essay from our recent Red Sauce America package, The Best Worst Take-Out Counter Employee Suburban Boston Has Ever Seen.Get the recipe from this episode:BA's Best Matzo Ball Soup

It really bothers me that Adam keeps interrupting her, and a lot of his other guests. It's not very respectful.
