In the tenth part of our series on Podcasts We Love, we bring you the Bon Appétit Foodcast
What is Bon Appetit?
The magazine with a print audience of 6.4 million, and almost as many monthly unique visitors to their website, Bon Appetit
is a magazine that focuses on what’s current and stylish in the world of food and drinks, while still giving readers valuable cooking tools and tips. It celebrates everything to do with food trends, preparation and cultivation of food, profiles stalwarts and geniuses in the field, and even offers insights into the world of behind-the-scenes phenomena related to cooking in, dining out, culture, travel, entertainment, shopping and design, that would thrill any geek.
Why We Love This Podcast
What’s not to love? Food is such a wonderful topic that there can be no dearth of aspects to explore and learn new things about. The interviews stay authentic to the magazine’s style and are conducted with an equal amount of gravitas and irreverence, which makes them a delight to listen to. There’s no telling what fun anecdote or little tip from the chefs, writers, and well, anyone who has something cool to say about food, might completely alter the way you perceive the art of cooking and consuming good food.
