#172 The Test Kitchen, Chapter 1

Update: 2021-02-0451


Chapter 1, “Original Sin”: In the summer of 2020, Bon Appétit faced an online reckoning. It imploded, seemingly overnight, former employees calling it a racist and toxic workplace. But the story of what actually happened there started ten years earlier.

Here are some recipes to try from the people featured in this week’s story:

Yewande Komolafe’s yam and plantain curry with crispy shallots and sheet-pan gochujang chicken

Sue Li’s caramelized onion galette and creamy turmeric pasta. Rick Martinez’s mole sencillo.

Eleanore Park’s ginger-scallion meatballs with lemony farro.

in case you wondering what the apology is a out at the beginning. The female host of this episode and PJ (one of the other hosts) were apparently hypocritical because they were called out for promoting and supporting the same work environment at Gimlet (the Reply All producing company) as the Bon Appetit magazine they are criticizing here in this episode. This girl host and PJ are no longer with Reply All. it's too bad, PJ was pretty cool. anyways, there you go!

Let's see... the other temps admit they were shy and didn't have as good of an understanding of American cuisine, and that Allison worked exceptionally hard and had better recipes. Yet, when she got promoted, it HAD to be racism. The fact that the hosts of this show got cancelled themselves shows that truth doesn't matter. Whatever a self-identified victim feels: that's enough.
