When many of us think New York City, we think food — from the latest ethnic discovery to the culinary innovations of cutting-edge chefs to the comfort foods we grew up eating.
For her new book, Food and the City: New York’s Professional Chefs, Restaurateurs, Line Cooks, Street Vendors and Purveyors Talk About What They Do and Why They Do It, journalist and bestselling author Ina Yalof journeyed inside this pulsating food scene to capture the stories of the people who have made this industry their lives. Join her as she talks with Croatian immigrant Jelena Pasic, who saw a need for a burger joint in Harlem and decided she was the one to fill it, and Bryce Shuman, executive chef of Betony, who was recently nominated for Best New York City Chef by the James Beard Foundation, as they share some of the delicious insights, inspiring stories and singular anecdotes that paint a vibrant picture of metropolitan food culture.
Ina Yalof will be signing copies of Food and the City following the event.
