It's a special moment when you realize another mortal being understands you: your wants, your needs, your desires, and yes, your cravings for breakfast burritos. And we have found that in Jim Gaffigan, thanks to his delightful new book Food: A Love Story. Is this not our own love story, Jim?!

It's been a bode for female chefs this month, after Acquavit's Emma Bengtsson landed a second Michelin star for the restaurant. She's only the second female executive chef to have two Michelin stars under her belt (the first being Dominique Crenn in San Francisco). Turns out, Bengtsson almost didn't take the job in the first place. With the wave of her success, it's safe to say now: no more excuses, lady chefs.
The Braiser is here to bring the personalities behind the food you eat and love (or hate!) to the forefront. What we eat, where we eat, and how we eat it is a focal point of how we define community, family, and culture in this country and around the world. And the people who help us do that are going to get our attention — though some, obviously, much more than others.
